Chipa by Lempihetki

The Chipa is  singular exponent of the cultural blend between Hispanic and Guarani tribes from South America. A gastronomic crossing from the colonial times, that gave origin to this traditional recipe. We carefully prepare and adapt that recipe, respecting its cultural value. 

Chipa’s main ingredients are tapioca starch, naturally free of gluten, and cheese. We choose to utilise only lactose-free ingredients. We do not use artificial flavorings, or coloring.

Our artisan gourmet products are made with high-quality ingredients to offer you the best and most tasty Chipa.

Try all three Chipa tastes: CHIPA CLASICO, CHIPA RUOHOSIPULI, or our CHILI CHIPA
