WHAT IS AQUAFABA
Each SNÖ frozen sandwich contains a mousse made from aquafaba, the viscous water in which chick peas have been cooked. It is then whipped until we get a rich and creamy texture, thus creating the perfect vegan topping. This method allows us to maximize the use of plant-based ingredients while contributing to circular economy.
*Because our aquafaba is not made from canned foods, it does not contain any BPA.
“aquafaba” comes from two Latin words: aqua “water” and faba “bean”
Circular Economy aims at reducing waste by optimizing the use of renewable resources. With this in mind, when manufacturing food products, we use ingredients that would traditionally be put side. For example, ugly produce or chick pea cooking water are resources that allow creating products that are atypical.
We are proud to recuperate and reuse hundreds of litres of chick peas cooking water and transform it into a delicious smooth mousse. This is how SNÖ contributes to reducing our ecological footprint.
