Antithesis Foods is a food technology company making processed foods healthier using the best food science. We develop nutritionally dense low-calorie alternatives to classic crunchy snacks and ingredients, all based on legumes- if it crunches, we make it healthier.
Our products are low in calories, net carbs, and sugar, yet high in fiber and protein. We use ingredients like chickpeas and other pulses, which are highly regarded by experts in nutrition and sustainability. Let’s crunch our way to healthier people and a healthier planet.
Founded in 2017, Antithesis Foods was started by graduate food scientists from Cornell University. We are united by our shared passion for using science to address critical problems in our food system. At Antithesis, we thrive on solving problems, care deeply about food and nutrition, and aren't afraid to do the antithesis of the norm.
Antithesis’ proprietary invention allows us to structure fibers and proteins into an aerated, crunchy matrix that mimics ingredients that create crunch such as wheat, potatoes, rice, and corn. Oh, and our ingredients taste great too.
Add crunchy texture, without the calories, to yogurts, ice creams, bars, and more! Available in various flavors and shapes for different product applications and macronutrient profiles to meet product goals for calories, fiber, protein, and
Crunch just like a wheat-based pita chip but
without the gluten. Available for private label opportunities and can be customized for flavor
(i.e. plain, salted, garlic & herb) and
Protos, our consumer brand, are the best-for-you crunchy gluten-free pita chips, high in protein and prebiotic fiber and low in calories and net carbs. They are craveable like junk food, but actually
food for you.
