- "I am EXTREMELY pleased with Foodservice Direct. I cannot believe how the item was received in my home. It could not have been packed any better if it was a delivery of plutonium! The care you take in ensuring items get delivered safely was phenomenal. The item was exactly what I was looking for and met all of my expectations. If I am ever looking for that hard-to-find item I work with being in the food service industry, I will make Foodservice Direct.com my FIRST stop.
- "Considering I almost totally shy away from on-line business, it took quite a leap of faith for me to order something I been looking for quite a while. So far, suffice it to say I am a satisfied customer! Once that case is consumed, I'll be contacting your firm to order more of the same. I am far to biased to render an objective opinion for you, Old Dutch has been my favorite dressing for too many years to recall how long!
Products in Plantain Chips
A plantain is a member of the banana family having a similar appearance but is much larger and can only be eaten when cooked. Our plantains are harvested in Costa Rica when they are approximately 75% mature to prevent ripening which would result in an undesirable sugar content. The skin is removed, and the plantain is sliced into vegetable oil and fried for approximately 1.5 minutes. The product is either sliced length-wise into strips or round and placed into eight different size bags which include salted, no salt, garlic and spicy Caribbean seasonings. The Plantain Chips are one of the most nutritional snack since they are rich in potassium and contain vitamins A and C. The product quality is a result of our careful inspection of each Plantain, oil chemistry and purified air in each bag.
