Amborella Organics Lemon Thyme
This not-too-sweet lollipop is made with a beautiful blend of USDA Organic and vegan pure cane sugar, beet sugar, corn syrup and delicious, herbaceous add-ins such as thyme flowers, lemon oil, turmeric and curcumin. Notably, the lollipop stick is biodegradeable and seed-containing—plant it in the ground horizontally and cover with soil to grow an heirloom herb or flower.

Gutsii Raspberry Rhapsody Prebiotic Chocolate
Most prebiotic, keto-friendly chocolate bars contain an amalgamation of food-like zero-calorie sweeteners and extracts that you can’t pronounce. But Gutsii, a new brand hailing from Australia, keeps it simple with cocoa mass, fiber-rich inulin, cocoa butter, dried raspberries and vanilla bean. Plus, there’s a whopping 11.4 grams prebiotic fiber in each 151-calorie bar.

Ka-Pop! Ancient Grain Popped Chips Olive Oil & Sea Salt
Quinoa is one ancient grain that has reached peak popularity. But sorghum? This gluten-free grain has yet to gain widespread star status. With its line of delicious sorghum-containing snacks, Ka-Pop! is motivated to help this nutrient-dense ingredient go mainstream. We favor this simple, Olive Oil & Sea Salt flavor, which contains just whole-grain sorghum, white sorghum, olive oil and sea salt.

Positively Plantain Tortillas
One of the cleanest grain-free tortillas we’ve ever seen, Positively Plantain crafts delicious tortillas from plantains, baking powder and Celtic sea salt—that’s it! (And no, there isn’t any banana taste.) We also love this Fort Collins, Colorado-based brand for its mission to donate 10 percent of profits to worthy organizations such as UNIDOS, a nonprofit that aids individuals and businesses in Puerto Rico (where plantains are a staple food) who were impacted by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
