About Brass Roots Food

Brass Roots is a New Orleans based company on a mission to provide healthy and delicious snacks made with the ancient superfood called the Sacha Inchi Seed (aka the Incan Peanut). Our entire range of keto, paleo & school friendly products use organic Sacha Inchi Seeds as a nutritious and allergen-friendly source of protein, healthy fats, and fiber to keep you satisfied and energized.

Aaron Gailmor, our CEO (Chief Eats Officer), founded Brass Roots in 2019, inspired by his father's heart condition, as well as other health issues that run in his family such as Diabetes. His goal was to create snacks that were nutritionally dense while still being delicious. Inspired by the optimism, perseverance, and community of New Orleans, Brass Roots was born.


Our supply chain partnerships and community work support our mission to empower our supplier farmers, our home city of New Orleans, and our planet.

Our goal to give back and #SnackWithAPurpose begins with the fair trade wages provided to farmers in South America and Southeast Asia. In Peru specifically, farmers are also trained on sustainable agriculture practices whereby they avoid "slash and burn" and monoculture methods. Closer to home, we use our resources to provide snacks and nutrition / entrepreneurship education to kids in New Orleans.

At Brass Roots, we believe that an empowered, healthy, and happy youth population is of incredible importance. We also recognize that not everyone has easy access to healthier foods. To positively impact our community and address this gap, we partner with local youth organizations to provide nutritious alternatives to traditional snacks through snack donations, as well as nutritional, wellness and entrepreneurial education where it’s needed most.
