Why did we start SuperEats?
We were always snack addicts and we couldn't find an option that was made from nutritious ingredients, while still satisfying our junk-food craving taste buds. Low calorie products weren't healthy enough, and the healthy options weren't tasty enough. So we created a brand that would allow us to innovate and develop new snacks to help people like us eat and live healthier (and HAPPIER!). In short, we wanted to help others snack with a PURPOSE.
What is SuperEats "the brand" all about?
Our mission has become more than creating healthier products. We believe brands hold more power today than ever to make a difference in the world and people's lives.
We hear frequently that we've created products that allow people with specific dietary needs & health conditions to snack when they thought they'd never be able to again. This is one of the most rewarding aspects of creating the SuperEats brand.
We believe that nutrition education is most beneficial when it's affecting kids as they have their entire lives to benefit from an improved diet. We love working with schools and are already working directly with schools in our home base of New Orleans. [If you're a school interested in speaking with us, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org!]
We are focused on plant-based ingredients as we believe strongly that a shift in global diets can be incredibly beneficial for the earth. (Check this out for more info)
Lastly, the future of SuperEats is about helping people. We don't pretend to have products that are silver bullets for health, but we've set out to keep pushing the average diet towards nutritionally balanced, plant-based ingredients that will help humans and the earth live better, longer lives.

What's the best way to chow down on SuperEats?
Any way you want. They are perfect for dipping in hummus, eating with a sandwich, or snacking solo. They are more filling than your regular snacks - so ideal if you're looking to eat more frequent, smaller meals throughout the day.
What should I know about your ingredients?
We like using vegetables that are high in antioxidants, essential fatty acids, protein, and fiber. We use Non GMO Project Verified, Gluten Free and Kosher certified ingredients. Our products are vegan and they're all nut free. Any corn we use is always Non GMO.
What about nutrition?
First, we like to say we made our snacks "functional" in that they contain well-rounded, balanced nutrition. Also, if we use oil, it's high oleic to avoid the bad, saturated fats. So the majority of the fat in our snacks is monounsaturated fat and is trans fat free. Lastly, some of our products have a tiny amount of sugar in them (usually <1g per serving if any). The World Health Organization recently revised its recommended daily sugar intake to 25g. We are at less than 4% of this daily amount per serving, while, for example, having >10% of your recommended DV of protein in our puffs and chips.
Why use Sacha Inchi?
Sacha Inchi is a seed native to Peru that looks, tastes and feels like a peanut. However it has higher protein than alternatives (almonds, cashews, peanuts) and has healthy omega 3 fatty acids. It is also a complete protein, containing all essential amino acids, and has a very high protein digestibility versus many other vegan protein sources. Aside from nutritional benefits, it is a great agricultural export and new source of income for many low income communities in South America.
What does the future of SuperEats look like?
We are always developing new products - our favorite hobby is developing healthy food options to share with our customers. We're also working on initiatives and partnerships that help to educate customers about nutrition and food, and how to improve their lives.
