Start-Up Brutal Foods Launches With Chocho-Based Puffs

March 14, 2023: 12:00 AM EST
San Diego-based start-up Brutal Foods has developed a line of baked puffed snacks made from chocho, a South American bean also known as Andean lupin. Chocho is a nutritious, regenerative crop that is rich in protein, fiber, calcium and amino acids. The brand's puffs are also made with rice flour, avocado oil and cassava starch and come in Churro Extravaganza, Cheeky Cheeze and Créme de la Sour flavors. In the future, Brutal Foods is looking to use the bean in other applications, such as pasta.
