Most Asked Questions

How does Palmini Taste?

The first thing that you need to know is that it is not pasta and will never taste exactly like pasta. Palmini is 100% made out of Hearts of Palm, so if you eat it straight out of the can it will taste like Hearts of Palm (texture will be softer)

That being said, if you find the taste of Palmini too acid, you can let it sit in your choice of milk for about 30 min.

Prepared with a regular pasta sauce and properly rinsed, the resemblance to regular pasta is remarkable. So much that some people actually believe that they are eating pasta while maintaining a low carb intake.

The truth is that you will not know until you try it for yourself! Click Here to purchase today!

The product currently comes from Bolivia


Why are there different amounts of calories/carbs in Palmini?

In order to have a tastier product, we changed our preservative from Citric Water to Fumaric Acid. When the nutritional analysis came back, it was slightly modified and we had to round the calories/carbs up.

All 14 Oz Palmini cans contain fumaric acid.


What is Fumaric Acid?

Fumaric acid exists naturally in bolete mushrooms, Icelandic moss and lichen, and human skin naturally produces the acid when it’s exposed to sunlight. A synthetic form of fumaric acid is used as a food additive to enhance flavor and sourness. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration considers it safe.

What is the Shelf Life?

Our products have a 3 year shelf life.


Is Palmini production deforesting and killing precious life?

Not at all! Our product is made from cultivated palm trees, very similar to sugar cane. We grow our own palm trees and harvest them in a controlled environment.

Additionally, we do not cut the entire tree. The same tree will grow over and over making it environmentally sustainable.
