Healthy snacks leader Beanitos kicks off the year with a new bean chip line that uses a new recipe based on whole beans sourced directly from American farmers.
The new, lighter textured bean chips are crispier, more flavorful and more nutritious. Beanitos now has one of the highest nutritional profiles of any salty snacks on the market, delivering 5 grams plant-based protein per serving (a full 25 percent more protein per serving than before), 4 grams of fiber per serving, antioxidants and loads of nutritional goodness.
“Consumers continue to seek convenient, better-for-you snacks to enjoy at work, on-the-go and in school lunchboxes,” says Giannella Alvarez, Beanitos CEO. “Our new from-the-farm Beanitos line is mouthwatering and packed with great nutrition, giving smart-snackers tons of crispy flavor, protein, fiber and antioxidants. Beanitos is a superfood snack – good for you, your family and the environment.”
Beanitos are made from whole black, pinto or white beans, sourced from farmers in Nebraska, Michigan, North Dakota and Colorado. Bean farming consumes less water, produces no methane and provides more nutrients per acre compared to raising meat proteins. Beans improve overall soil health by returning nitrogen to the earth as they grow.
“We are focused on celebrating the goodness of beans and transforming the humble bean into a culinary hero of goodness for people and the planet,” says Paige Jones, chief marketing officer of Beanitos. “The new packaging is designed to clearly and cleanly communicate the nutritional and environmental benefits of our bean-based snacks and the wide flavor variety to satisfy our demanding smart snacker.”
