Why We Love It: The macros on these protein-centric chips are hard to beat. This is a great alternative to sugar-laden protein shakes and bars, and the flavor of the zesty nacho flavor captures what a nacho chip should taste like, without the dairy. But when comparing these chips to other non-protein-oriented chips and snacks, the texture and flavor is on the more processed side. These chips are made from a pea protein isolate, which although plant-based and allergy-friendly, is in itself a processed form of protein. But if you’re looking for a vegan, gluten-free, quality protein snack, ProTings are a great find.
Meet the Makers: Based in Brooklyn, NY, ProTings was founded in 2013 by former college roommates Krik and Ryan, who were tired of the lack of variety in post-workout protein options. After moving to New York and embarking on careers in corporate finance, Krik and Ryan started to experiment with recipes for a non-shake non-bar savory protein snack and came up with ProTings, a gluten-free, vegan chip packed with 15g of protein! www.protings.com
