Beanitos - The Original Bean Snack!
About Us
 

AMAZING TASTE—POWERFUL NUTRITION

We’re two brothers who love to snack! We think everyone deserves to crunch and dip without compromise—to enjoy a snack that tastes great and is good for you. But we just couldn’t find a snack that fit the bill… so we created Beanitos©.

Beanitos are an honestly delicious snack made from super nutritious beans that have fiber and protein grown right in them. They’re real food, full of crunchy flavor, free of preservatives, and made with only natural non-GMO ingredients.

Some call us revolutionaries. Others call us and say, “C’mon over and bring some Beanitos.” We think you’ll call Beanitos your new favorite snack!

FAQ

Questions about Beanitos© and our products? Here you’ll find some information about why Beanitos are a delicious, healthier choice.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Are your chips a slightly different color or crunch than the last time you purchased them?

 

We have exciting news. The chip masters at Beanitos have developed a new and improved proprietary process for making Beanitos that produces a color, a texture, and a taste that is even closer to the traditional tortilla chip that everyone knows and loves. So you get all the delicious crunch of your favorite tortilla chip – but since these are Beanitos – there is no corn, no fillers, and no gluten in any of our snack products!

Are Beanitos Healthy?

 

Beanitos are made from fiber and protein rich whole beans. Since we’re from Texas, a Beanitos serving is good-sized. For example, about 12 chips or 1 oz. of Restaurant Style White Bean Chips contains:

  • » Full 4 grams complete protein
  • » Amazing 6 grams fiber
  • » Satisfying 16 grams carbohydrates
  • » Only 7 grams fat with NO trans fats
  • » NO sugar added
  • » Just 140 calories

Beanitos also have lower sodium than most snack chips, ranging from 55 mg to 140 mg per serving. No other snack chip can boast all the healthy nutrition of Beanitos!

How are Beanitos made?

 

Simply. We always start with the natural goodness of USA farmed whole beans, then we carefully sort, wash, and cook the beans in small batches. Next we combine them with whole-grain rice to create special dough. Then it’s shaped and cut into chips, which are baked and then flash-fried in sunflower oil and finished with a light dusting of sea salt or natural seasoning.

Why are your chips made from beans?

 

It’s no secret that beans are loaded with health benefits—high in fiber, protein, and carbohydrates—but are sadly underused in the typical U.S. diet. In addition, beans are naturally low-glycemic and gluten-free. Recent medical and nutrition research suggests that a low glycemic diet that is high in healthy fiber contributes to good health and can help curb obesity, diabetes, cancer, and heart disease!

Is this new? Are there other bean chips on the market?

 

Some snack manufacturers produce chips that claim to be “bean chips”. But we invite you to carefully read the ingredients of these other bean chips. Usually you’ll discover that beans are a supplemental ingredient and that corn or potatoes are the main ingredient. The bottom line is that it’s hard work to make a bean-based chip that also tastes great. It took us over three years to get the Beanitos formula just right and we continue to innovate and improve our craft. The result? Great tasting chips made from beans instead of corn, wheat, or potatoes!

Are Beanitos gluten-free?

 

We are proud that Beanitos are gluten-free. They contain no gluten ingredients, and they are made on dedicated gluten-free lines. We also send Beanitos out to third-party labs for gluten-free verification and consistently report less than 3 parts per million gluten (<3ppm). This level is virtually undetectable and exceeds the proposed U.S. gluten-free standard of <20ppm. It also exceeds the Canadian gluten-free standard of <5ppm. According to the National Association for Celiac Disease (www.celiaccentral.org), 1 in 133 people have some form of gluten intolerance or celiac disease. So it’s not surprising that Mintel, a market research company, reported in 2010 that gluten-free is one of the fastest-growing and most important food categories.

Are Beanitos low-glycemic?

 

The glycemic index was developed in the 1980s by Dr. David Jenkins at the University of Toronto and it is the scale that measures how much a food impacts blood-glucose levels. Beanitos are low-glycemic because they’re made from beans that are packed full of nutritional value without any simple sugars. Unlike corn or potatoes - beans take longer to break down into glucose to give you energy and this means a low glycemic value and more stable blood-glucose levels. Most other chips which are commonly made from corn and potatoes, are high-glycemic foods that can cause unwanted spikes in blood glucose levels.

Yes, Beanitos are laboratory tested by Glycemic Index Laboratories Inc -- an accredited independent third party -- and are certified for low glycemic ratings:

  • » Beanitos Original Black Bean Chips have a GI (glycemic index) of 33
    and a GL (glycemic load) of 3
  • » Beanitos Chipotle BBQ Black Bean Chips have a GI of 42 and a GL of 4
  • » Beanitos Simply Pinto Bean Chips have a GI of 44 and a GL of 4
  • » Beanitos Better Cheddar Pinto Bean Chips have a GI of 43 and a GL of 4
  • » Beanitos Restaurant Style White Bean Chips have a GI of 37 and a GL of 4
  • » Beanitos Nacho Cheese White Bean Chips have a GI of 37 and a GL of 4

What’s so bad about corn?

 

Nothing, per se, in its natural fresh state. However, corn is now mechanically and chemically processed in over 4,000 items in the typical supermarket, and corn makes up some 60% of the western diet, according to major studies. In addition to its use as a feed to fatten farm animals, it’s a big fat kernel of simple starch that can be broken down and reassembled to make processed food ingredients for human consumption, including high-fructose corn syrup, baking powder, sucrose, starch, and margarine, just to name a few. So the real problem is that corn—as it appears in most processed foods including leading snack chips like Fritos©, Doritos© and Tostitos©—has minimal nutritional value. What’s more, when corn is processed as high-fructose corn syrup, it is no longer considered “natural” and is believed to be contributing to a public health crisis in our country by fueling obesity. Lastly, corn has also has been increasingly identified as causing food sensitivities in consumers. Beanitos are a delicious and easy way to reduce the empty corn in your diet while increasing consumption of things our bodies normally need more of, like fiber and protein.

 

Allergy Info

Beanitos are produced using Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). We follow strict guidelines that require our machinery be washed and sanitized before and after each time we make Beanitos. Beanitos are proudly gluten-free—we perform lab tests during production to ensure that gluten is not present. Please email us with any specific questions or concerns.

 

Corn Free

Corn is used as a filler in thousands of processed foods providing no material nutritional value. Recent research indicates that corn based non-natural sweeteners such as high fructose corn syrup, may be contributing to the obesity epidemic and the resulting incidence of type 2 diabetes. Food sensitivities to corn appear to be on the rise.

 

All Natural

We don’t use any fillers, artificial colors, artificial flavors, or preservatives like many other snack foods—we are truly all natural. You can always trust that we source ingredients of the highest quality that have not been genetically modified.

 

Certified Gluten Free

Millions of Americans follow a gluten free diet. Gluten is one of the top eight allergens as defined by the FDA, and you can trust that all our products are Certified Gluten Free by independent testing. http://www.gfco.org

 

No Trans Fat

Trans Fat has been shown to increase the risk of coronary heart disease. LDL (bad) cholesterol rises and HDL (good) cholesterol lowers with increased consumption of trans fats.

 

No Msg

Flavor should come from the food naturally, not from questionable flavor enhancers like MSG. Over the years the FDA has also received many reports of adverse reactions to foods containing MSG.

 

No Preservatives

We never add in any artificial chemicals to preserve our natural goodness.

 

Certified Kosher

All of our products are certified Kosher by Kof-K Kosher Supervision.  http://www.kof-k.org

 

High Fiber / Dietary Fiber

Found mainly in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and beans, fiber provides a multitude of health benefits such as: promoting digestive health, helping maintain a healthy weight, and lowering your risk of diabetes and heart disease. Consuming healthy dietary fiber also makes you feel full faster and longer.

 

Cholesterol Free

The American Heart Association says that too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease, and that cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in the United States. The good news is, you can lower your cholesterol and reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke by taking responsibility for managing your diet and cholesterol levels.

 

Complete Protein

Proteins are the building blocks of life. Beanitos complete protein content contains all essential amino acids. Protein consumption is proven to boost energy, build lean muscle and maintain a strong immune system.

 

Certified Low Glycemic

The easiest way to find all round healthy food choices is to look for the GI Labs symbol. Low glycemic foods make you feel fuller for a longer time and help control blood sugar levels and appetite. http://www.gilabs.com

 

Non-GMO

The Grocery Manufacturers association estimates that GMOs are now present in more than 75% of conventional products. We believe that consumers have a right to know if their food contains genetically modified ingredients.

 

Vegan

You can be assured that our products labeled as vegan contain absolutely no animal products.

 

Lightly Salted

Just enough natural sea salt to help bring out the hearty goodness of our all natural beans.
