2 Ways Proper Crisps Give You Fuel…

Here at Proper Crisps we are all keen keen advocates for a healthy and active lifestyles!

As you can imagine, we’re thrilled to be major sponsors of New Zealand’s Coast to Coast Multisport Race; and to be supporting World Champion athlete and adventure racer, Elina Ussher. 4TH time winner of the Coast to Coast.

As you can imagine, with a passion for sport and the fact that we’re based in one of the most beautiful outdoor adventure playgrounds in New Zealand, sunny Nelson, we know a thing or two about how to fuel your body. That’s why Proper Crisps are 100% natural; we’ll never compromise on that. Your Proper Crisps are…

  • Gluten Free
  • Dairy Free
  • GMO Free
  • Vegan Friendly
  • With no added MSG

But let’s get down to detail… Here’s how Proper Crisps will rev your engine and spin your wheels, baby!

1. They’re cleverly complex – Don’t be perplexed… It’s a good thing! Potatoes, Kumara and Parsnips are all good sources of complex carbohydrates. They contain vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, but most importantly they give energy to all the cells in your body. So whether you’re fuelling up prior to game day, or refuelling after your adventure… Pop a pack of Proper in your pack to replenish body and soul!

2. They’ll super charge your sodium levels – All too often salt gets a bad rap; but the low salty goodness of Proper Crisps will help your body keep its fluids in balance. Sodium plays a key role in nerve and muscle function. Remember, when it comes to salt, we only use the good stuff, the finest Marlborough Sea Salt, sourced from the snowy stacks that grace the landscape at Lake Grassmere.
