Don’t be surprised if you start seeing more sorghum.
Despite being the fifth most popular cereal grain in the world (according to the Whole Grains Council), most people don’t consider sorghum a go-to whole grain.
But a new line of chips from Popcorners is working on that.
Popcorners’ Popped Whole Grain Chips are made from popped whole grain sorghum, a pretty innovative turn for the chip aisle.
With 110 calories in a 1 oz serving, these popped whole grains have 3.5 g total fat, 2 g dietary fiber, and 3 g protein.
Sorghum is a gluten free grain, and these chips are not only gluten free but also GMO free.
I recently sampled the Twisted Salt flavor. The ingredient list is simple: whole grain sorghum, sunflower oil, and tropical seasoning (salt, onion powder, garlic powder and spices).
While the nutritionals and ingredient list are impressive for a chip, the flavor is a bit off. The garlic and onion powders are overwhelming, leaving what can best be described as a musty aftertaste.
So while these chips need some work when it comes to flavor, it is at least refreshing to see some sorghum getting shelf space.
