Frequently Asked Questions

 

What are the nutritious benefits of Beanitos?

 

Get more from your snacks than just great flavor. Beanitos sustains you with protein, fiber, and wholesome goodies like antioxidants. For example, about 9 chips or 1oz of Original Black Bean chips contains:

  • » Full 5 grams complete protein
  • » Amazing 5 grams fiber
  • » Satisfying 15 grams carbohydrates
  • » Free of MSG, gluten, sugar, artificial colors, cholesterol, preservatives, artificial flavors, trans fat, corn, GMOs
  • » Just 140 calories

How are Beanitos made?

 

We start with USA farmed whole beans, then we carefully sort, wash and cook the beans in small batches. Next, we combine them with non-GMO long grain white rice to create a special dough. It is then cut into triangle-shaped chips, which are baked and then cooked with sunflower oil to give our bean chips flavor and crunch. Lastly, our snacks are lightly dusted with sea salt or seasoning.

Why Bean chips, anyway?

 

Did you know Beans are a SUPERFOOD? Yes, we said superfood. Beans are a nutritional powerhouse that are an excellent source of fiber, protein and carbohydrates-but sadly underused in the typical American diet.

Beans are also:

  • » Rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, such as copper, folate, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and zinc
  • » Naturally low-glycemic and gluten-free
  • » The only cultivated plants that actually enrich, rather than deplete the soil during the growing process compared to animal foods, corn and wheat

Beans are so good that experts recommend consuming up to 3 cups (6 servings) of legumes a week. However, Americans are only consuming 1 cup on average every week.

Are Beanitos gluten-free?

 

Yes! All of our bean products have been tested and certified gluten-free by the Gluten Free Certification Organization. To learn more, visit gfco.org.

Are Beanitos low-glycemic?

 

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

Are your products vegan or vegetarian?

 

All of our snacks are vegetarian-friendly. Our VEGAN products include Original Black Bean, Simply Pinto, Restaurant Style, Hint of Lime, Garden Fresh Salsa and Baked Skinny Dippers. Our NON-VEGAN products include Nacho Cheese, Honey Chipotle BBQ, Better Cheddar & Sour Cream, Sweet Chili & Sour Cream and Baked Mac n' Cheese Crunch.

Are Beanitos products organic?

 

No, our products do not qualify as USDA Certified Organic. However, we are non-GMO Project Verified and contain no artificial ingredients, colors or fillers. We try and use organic ingredients whenever possible!

What’s so bad about corn?

 

Nothing, per se, in its natural fresh state. The real problem is that corn-as it appears in most processed foods including some leading snack chips-has minimal nutritional value. 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. Corn has also been increasingly identified as causing food sensitivities in consumers.

That’s why Beanitos are taking over the chip aisle by storm, overthrowing bad snacks with a delicious bean chip that can easily reduce the empty corn in your diet - while also reigning supreme with the things our bodies need more of, like fiber and protein.

Where can I find Beanitos?

 

Beanitos are available nationwide in the natural food, gluten-free, or chip aisles in natural and mass-market grocers. You can also buy Beanitos online at Amazon.com. Beanitos are available internationally in Canada, UK, Korea, Germany and many more countries.

What’s your "allergy info"?

 

In all of our packaging we've included an 'Allergy Info' underneath the ingredient list saying 'Made in facility that may also use soy, seeds, wheat, corn and tree nuts.' However, to cover the unlikely possibility of inadvertent cross presence of these allergens in our product-and taking into consideration the people with very high susceptibility towards food sensitivities-we decided to declare the following items on a voluntary basis above and beyond the basic ingredient and nutrition labeling requirements stipulated so that consumers can make an informed consumption decision.

We did include this statement because some ingredients used to manufacture other products in our plants may contain possible concomitant allergens that could potentially cause a reaction in otherwise differently sensitive individuals (for example: the occasional production use of coconut in other products in our manufacturing plant could cause a related sensitivity even though the coconut is actually a seed from the palm family and is not actually a real nut, and soy sensitive individuals may also harbor a sensitivity to other different legumes). That being said, all of our salted items are made back to back, then the lines are thoroughly cleaned before any seasoned items (such as dairy) run through production. Please email with any specific questions or concerns.

What is "Natural Flavor"?

 

We believe in snacks that are both good for you and good to enjoy. We do have 'Natural Flavor' listed in our seasoned products. These natural flavors are a proprietary blend of spices to make your chips taste even better, without sacrificing any of our real food and nothing-artificial-ever standards. We can assure you that these natural flavors are truly natural; Our spices come straight from the source and do NOT contain or come from sources that contain corn, MSG, corn maltodextrin, soy, chemical processing, or artificial ingredients/colors. Unfortunately, we are not able to share the exact combination of spices used as it is our proprietary blend but we can assure you it satisfies our high standards for quality and real food ingredients. Beanitos is committed to making gluten, corn, GMO and artificial flavor/color FREE products, always.

 

Corn Free

We believe in using only the best quality ingredients to create real food snacks that are both delicious and nutritious. We do not use corn, or any corn by-products in our base chip and seasoning when producing bean chips. We believe in going the extra mile to make sure the ingredients we use are gluten, corn, Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and artificial flavor/color FREE product, always!

 

Certified Gluten Free

Yes! All of our snacks have been tested and certified gluten-free by the Gluten Free Certification Organization. To learn more, visit gfco.org.

 

Low Sodium

After some careful consideration, consumer research and lots of snacking, we made the decision to change the sodium content of our sea-salted flavors from 55mg to 85mg. Our optimized sodium levels deliver a more rounded flavor experience based on the results of our tasting panel and consumer research. We understand flavor and sodium content is a personal and dietary preference and everyone's taste and dietary needs are different. We are always exploring ways to improve our product and will be considering different sodium levels in the future.

 

No Trans Fat

Beanitos uses a non-GMO, high oleic, pure sunflower oil to make our products. This oil is naturally free of trans fatty acids and are not hydrogenated in any way. An independent third party lab test verified this fact. Beanitos is happy to say we have 0 grams of trans fat (by FDA standard) in all of our snacks.
