Snacking always has been and always will be popular, but it’s hard to make it both healthy and convenient. Some people simply stop worrying about choosing healthy snacks and opt for whatever options is most convenient, but more and more people have been choosing health instead. That has caused significant trouble for many companies that produce traditional, unhealthy snack foods, but it has also opened up opportunities for people who are willing to innovate to appeal to modern tastes. Livio Bisterzo is one of those people, and he has managed to turn chickpeas into a healthy snack that appeals to modern tastes.
That new snack is called Hippeas. It is similar to traditional puffed snacks, but it is made from chickpeas instead of corn or other grains. That gives it more protein and fiber than many similar snack foods while also cutting the calories down to a safe level. Hippeas is also gluten-free, which makes it great for increasingly health-conscious consumers and even better for people who suffer from allergies. That blend of nutritional benefits has helped Hippeas to stand out from the crowd and earn a place in many supermarkets and coffee shops all across the United States of America and beyond.
Of course, no snack can survive purely on its nutritional benefits. Hippeas is popular in part because it manages to be healthy without being strange. People are familiar with puffed snack foods, and Hippeas comes in a variety of relatively familiar flavors. That familiarity is what separates it from other health foods, and is one of the keys to its success.
Hippeas is produced by Green Park Holdings, a company that was founded by Livio Bisterzo in in 2015 to offer healthy food that can break into the mainstream market. Unlike many people who work in the health food industry, Bisterzo comes from a background in business. He started his career in the luxury market, but he eventually moved on to the food and drink industry when he acquired Little Miracles Drinks. That experience made him realize that a new, healthy snack food had a lot of potential on the modern market and taught him all that he needed to know to go on to found Green Park Holdings. Since then, Bisterzo has used his business experience to grow Green Park Holdings into a successful company and to bring Hippeas to as many different people as possible.
