LOS ANGELES, March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- For snack lovers looking for a healthier alternative to corn chips, tortilla chips or potato chips, a new line of crispy and delicious bean and rice chips has just been introduced by Beanfields. Made from a combination of premium U.S. grown black beans, navy beans and long grain rice, Beanfields™ chips have a taste and crunch that sets them apart.
"Snacks—no matter how healthy they are—have to taste great, so we made sure our bean chips were the most delicious of any on the market," said Beanfields Founder and President, Reed Glidden. "We use only a few simple ingredients, all from the best sources available, to make Beanfields snacks."
The nutritional value of beans is well-known, but it took snack experts at Beanfields to make them into a light and crispy snack chip. The four flavors of Beanfields (Naturally Unsalted, Sea Salt, Sea Salt & Pepper, and Pico de Gallo) are a healthier and more satisfying snack, with twice as much protein and fiber as most tortilla, corn, or potato chips.
Every 1 oz. serving of Beanfields chips provides 4 grams of protein, about as much as a 4 oz. glass of milk, and 4 grams of fiber, about the same as a 1/2 cup serving of raisin bran. The chips are also free of every one of the FDA's eight most common ingredients that trigger food allergies. For people who need to avoid salt, Beanfields chips also come in a great tasting unsalted version.
Set to arrive in stores in Spring 2011, Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips are:
- Corn & Gluten Free
- Non GMO
- Farmed & Made in the USA
Beanfields is a family-owned company that builds responsible, value-based relationships with its farmers and suppliers. It supports sustainable farming practices, and invests in food security to ensure viable and nutritious crops for generations to come. According to Glidden, "We believe beans are good for our families, good for our farmers, and good for our planet."
Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips will be available soon at natural foods and conventional food stores. A 6 oz. bag will retail from $2.99 to $3.99. To find out where Beanfields can be purchased online visit beanfieldssnacks.com.
