Banza
New York, NY

Banza, founded in 2014 by brothers Brian and Scott Rudolph, is on a mission to make nutritious food more accessible. Banza's first product is a pasta made from chickpeas - with double the protein, four times the fiber and 40% fewer net carbs than traditional pasta. Seeking a healthier version of his favorite food, Brian started making chickpea pasta by hand in his kitchen. Since launching in 2014, Banza pasta has gained recognition as one of TIME's 25 Best Inventions of 2015, and expanded to over 5,000 stores nationwide.
