Rhythm Superfoods: on a quest to change the world one snack at a time
23rd March 2012 · 0 Comments
This year, one of the hottest brands to hit the snack food aisle comes from Austin-based Rhythm Superfoods offering consumers a delicious and nutrient-rich alternative to the standard chip.
Company co-founder Keith Wahrer, (also a co-founder of Daily Juice in Austin) used local grown & natural foods mixed with flavorful hand-crafted, vegetable-only sauces and seasonings to create the line of vegetarian, protein, Kale and sweet potato vine Chips.
“Our snacks are made from the highest quality organic fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and spices which are always minimally processed for maximum nutrition and deliciousness,” said Wahrer. “Each product is made to feed the body, mind and soul.”
Rhythm Superfoods uses a creative “air cooking” technique where the vegetables are not baked or fried, but air-crisped at low temperature.
Wahrer teamed up with fellow Austin entrepreneurs Scott Jensen (former Stubb’s BBQ CEO), Clayton Christopher and David Smith (founders of Sweet Leaf tea), and Robert Larkin (Growing Grace, Daily Juice) with a mission to play a major role in the healthification of the American diet.
“Healthy consumption has never been so popular,” said Jensen, co-founder & CEO of Rhythm Superfoods. “We desired to produce a snack food item that would be loved by people who have not only been eating raw foods for some time but also those trying a vegetable chip for the first time. Now it is possible to consume something that is healthy and tastes good.”
The company provides their products at a competitive cost (Kale Chips sell for $5.99 and the Sweet Potato Chips for $2.99.) with flavors such as Zesty Nacho, Bombay Curry, Kool Ranch, Texas BBQ & Mango Habanero.
