About The Brand

Artisan Tropic is a family adventure fueled by the founding family’s passion for healthy living. In 1994, they moved to Charlotte, North Carolina from Bogotá, Colombia (South America). Charlotte has become home and is very dear to their hearts. They love to dance. They love soccer. They love family. And they LOVE to eat healthy.

In 2011, their youngest daughter was very sick. After getting many different opinions and undergoing various treatments, they could not figure out what was wrong with her so they took her to a holistic nutritionist. She went through some pretty drastic dietary changes and her body began to heal. She is now completely healed! From this experience, they learned the importance of whole food nutrition and the way God made our bodies to function and heal with the proper fuel. The family became very passionate about eating healthy so they decided to create their own brand of healthy snacks.


Is a plantain the same as a banana?
  • No, it is part of the same family, but is considered a vegetable and need to be cooked before eaten. You can also eat a plantain at any point of it’s ripeness.
What is a plantain?
  • Plantains are a member of the banana family. They are a starchy, low in sugar variety that is cooked before serving as it is unsuitable raw. It is used in many savory dishes somewhat like a potato would be used and is very popular in Western Africa and the Caribbean countries.
Where to plantains grow?
  • Plantain trees grow best in moisture-rich, tropical climates. The tree flowers develop into a bunch, which holds about five to 10 fruits. Plantains don’t have a growing season and are, therefore, available year-round. This makes them a very valuable, reliable food source for developing countries. Artisan Tropic Plantains are grown in Colombia, South America.
What are the health benefits of plantains?
  • Plantains are a solid source of carbohydrates with a low fat content, but they also provide a number of other health benefits as well. Plus, they don’t contain any significant levels of toxins.
Are plantains a good source of fiber?
  • Fiber has a profound effect on the digestive system and plays a significant role in keeping it regular. One cup of plantains provides almost a fifth of the fiber recommended daily, which is roughly 25–30 grams. As a high-fiber food, plantains add bulk to food intake, which aids digestion. That means, according to research from the University of Kentucky’s Department of Internal Medicine and Nutritional Sciences Program, consuming plantains is a great way to relieve constipation and provide relief from hemorrhoids and digestive conditions like diverticulitis. Fiber also make you feel full, which can help with weight control. Thus, increasing intake of dietary fiber can also help enhance weight loss in obese individuals. Soluble fiber is also known to help lower cholesterol and blood pressure, which prevents heart disease. Fiber can also help stabilize blood sugar.

  • In a study from the International Journal of Research in Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Sciences, dried plantain powder showed a significant ulcer-healing effect on an aspirin-induced gastric ulcer. Individuals who use nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug therapy for conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and chronic pain are at high risk for developing ulcers in the membrane layer of the stomach. According to the study, dried plantain is able to stimulate the growth of the inner lining of the stomach.
