Splitz

Vegan snacks for the win! Got ahold of Splitz, tasty split pea crips. They have the texture of a cracker with none of the crazy ingredients. These awesome snacks pack a punch! My husband and I split (pun intended) all three bags and I decided that my favorite was the original and he decided that his favorite was the falafel flavored. I am totally a chips person so this was a gift from above for me. Haha. 



A few words from Michael Sukhram (Founder)

A snack with two sides - the tasty kick of infused exotic spices and the feel-good benefits of natural ingredients. That’s what you get with SPLITZ, the unmistakably crunchy split pea crisps that are made to be munched by the handful. How? Well, the ridiculously great flavor’s a start - a blend of Indian and Caribbean spices my mother used in her own split pea snacks that I grew up devouring.
Then there’s the healthy side, thanks to fiber and protein found in 100% yellow split peas. And it doesn’t hurt that each gluten-free bag of SPLITZ is completely GMO-free. Line ‘em up next to potato and corn snacks and you’ll see how SPLITZ stands a little stronger, sounds a little crunchier and tastes a whole lot better.
Put ‘em in your hand and they won’t leave a trace, because the exotic tastes of SPLITZ are infused right into each crisp. We put the flavor in, so you can snack on. I’m proud to bring this unique snack to you.






Protein, Fiber, No Gluten, Soy or GMOs 

Fiber
Split peas, the main ingredient in Splitz, are rich in soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber forms a “gel-like substance in the digestive tract that binds bile (which contains cholesterol) and carries it out of the body.” You receive 7g of fiber from one 1.5oz bag of Splitz. That’s almost half the amount required based on a 2,000-calorie/day diet.

Stabilizing Blood Sugar
Soluble fiber helps stabilize blood sugar levels. For people who have diabetes, the fiber contained in split peas/Splitz can help to balance blood sugar levels. Studies have shown that diets high in fiber can help balance blood sugar levels and provide slow burning energy. Research by Colorado State University Extension indicates that soluble fiber “aids in weight management by enhancing the feeling of fullness.” Specifically, results displayed that high fiber diets provide a “full” feeling because of its water-absorbing abilities.
Protein
Split peas are packed with protein; one 1.5oz bag of Splitz contains 7g of protein(Original). Protein also plays a role in helping you feel “full” for an extended period of time because the body normally takes longer to digest protein.
Complex Carbohydrates
The split peas in Splitz contain complex carbohydrates, which are healthier than the simple carbohydrates found in sugar-based foods. Complex carbs can help you sustain consistent energy levels over periods of time.
Gluten Free
Splitz are made from 100 percent yellow split pea flour so there is no gluten inside.
GMO-free
Splitz contains non-GMO expeller pressed canola oil.

All bags of Splitz are composed of 100 percent Yellow Split Peas, no fillers or additives.Made in U.S.A
