Beanitos has launched a bean chip line that uses a recipe based on whole black, pinto or white beans, sourced from farmers in Nebraska, Michigan, North Dakota and Colorado.

It claims the snack contains 5g plant-based protein per serving (25% more protein per serving than before), 4g of fiber per serving and antioxidants. 

Better-for-you

Consumers continue to seek convenient, better-for-you snacks to enjoy at work, on-the-go and in school lunchboxes​,” said Giannella Alvarez, CEO, Beanitos. 

Our from-the-farm Beanitos line is mouthwatering and packed with  nutrition, giving smart-snackers tons of crispy flavor, protein, fiber and antioxidants​.”  

Since launching its bean-based snacks in 2010, the company has redesigned its packaging to celebrate the nutritional value of beans, American bean farmers, and beans as a sustainable crop. 

Beanitos are corn-free, gluten-free, preservative-free, Non-GMO Project-verified, and certified Kosher. 

Soil health

The company claims 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. 

Paige Jones, chief marketing officer, Beanitos, said the packaging is designed to clearly and cleanly communicate the nutritional and environmental benefits of the bean-based snacks and the wide flavor variety.
