Nutrition is paramount here at Backpacker's Pantry. An idea for a new product does not move forward unless it meets certain internal guidelines. You need protein, carbs, and fat yet all in a healthy balance. We also know you need salt when exercising & exerting but not too much. You need good, clean ingredients which happens to be part of our company's mission. We don't use cheap alternatives or add any preservatives or colorings. With real, plant-based ingredients, no empty calories are allowed in our food. In 2017, we were asked by the US Ski team to provide food for their athletes when traveling to foreign countries. THAT'S how good we are!
Sourcing the best ingredients is a full-time job around here & it takes a lot of work but we wouldn’t have it any other way. The beautiful flavors of our meals are all due to the high-quality ingredients & our inhouse chef who develops all the recipes. Attention to dietary needs (vegan, gluten-free, etc.) are highly considered as we always want someone to be able to find something in our line that suits their needs. Allergens are taken very seriously in our plant. We rigorously test in the case of gluten & have a separate work area designated for the processing of peanuts. Peanuts are bagged separately to lessen the chance of any cross-contamination within the plant. Backpacker’s Pantry is thrilled to be along on your next adventure.
