Everybody knows the Dutch delicacy stroopwafel. Thanks to Starbucks we can find it everywhere. According to Wikipedia it was first made in Gouda around 18th century by a baker using leftovers from the bakery, such as breadcrumbs, which were sweetened with syrup.
But Chloé’s Strooop! is different. It is the first plant-based stroopwafel made from vegetables.
Each waffle is made out of 100 grams of carrot, beetroot or celeriac.
Strooop! is a perfect showcase of zero waste snack. It is made from misfit, weird, damaged or leftover vegetables after cleaned and pressed.
Around %78 of the vegetable is juice and the rest is fiber. Syrup is made produced out of its juice. And with the remaining fiber is transformed into a waffle with some help from buckwheat flour, rapeseed oil.
With Strooop!, they give new life to vegetable by-products as a modern version of the typical Dutch delicacy.
Entirely plant-based, gluten free, no sugar, no food colouring and great source of dietary fiber.
Hope to see more of zero waste snacks around the globe.
