Banana Chief’s Giant Banana Chips

Recently, I stumbled upon the first and only banana chips made of giant saba and cooked in coconut oil – Banana Chief’s. This is perfect for those individuals who are into gluten-free, vegan and organic diet. The banana chips are rich in Potassium and Fiber which are good for your body.

Saba, a variety of banana, originated in the Philippines. Its official designation is Musa acuminata x balbisiana (ABB Group) ‘Saba’. It is usually eaten raw or cooked into various desserts such as turon, maruya and banana chips. Banana Chief’s Giant Banana Chips features three signature flavors: Ripe, Salted and Pinoy BBQ. I was able to try the last two flavors. Here are my take on each flavors:

Pinoy BBQ

I love barbecue flavor since I grew up as a heavy meat eater. It was not too smoky in flavor and it had the right amount of kick to it. The bbq flavor did not overpower the taste of the banana chips. It was crispy and lite. I can recommend Pinoy BBQ flavored Banana Chief’s Giant Banana Chips as a healthier alternative to potato chips. My verdict? I’ll give it an ACE.

I’m not a fan of salted chips since I’m an advocate of low salt diet. Surprisingly, I loved the Salted flavored Banana Chief’s Giant Banana Chips. It was not too salty and oily. My score? I’ll give it a HIT.

  1. Hello Emmanuel,
    I am so glad I ran into your website, and I’ll be coming back. Here is the thing. I’m always looking for snacks that are a healthier alternative to potato chips. Banana Chief’s Giant Banana Chips featuring salted and Pinoy BBQ seem perfect snacks. Like you I ‘m not a big fan of salty chips, but no salt chips always seem flavorless. It seems that the salted Banana Chips have the right amount of salt. I also sure that I’d like the BBQ flavored Banana Chips because I like BBQ.

    I think this post will also help people who like potato chips but have to limit their intake because of high blood pressure. Now they can take something that’s healthy without sacrificing flavor. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hello Emmanuel. A couple of years ago, a friend on a business trip to Philipines bought me some snacks. It was banana chips and another packet of dried mango (if not mistaken). I could not remember if the banana chips were this brand you mentioned but it is definitely not oily. I will get my friend to look out for this during his next trip there. Cheers, Sharon

  3. Emmanual,
    I have never tried banana chips. Sounds like a great snack. I have had baked Kale and frozen bananas. Both make great nutritional snacks. Frozen bananas are also very good for adding to a smoothie.
    I will look the next time I go to the store for some of these banana chips, I think I will try the BBQ ones first. I will see if they are available in my area.
