BeanFields Chips

Beanfileds Chips makes it ok to snack on here and there!

With 8 different delicious flavors, Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips satisfy your snack cravings with every delicious crunch. One serving of Beanfields Chips gives you 5 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber, so you can feel good about what you’re eating. Beanfields Chips are always vegan, certified gluten-free, kosher, and Non-GMO Project Verified.

Did you know that beans are the ONLY food that the USDA lists in two different nutrition categories?  Beans are BOTH a vegetable and a protein source!  That’s a lot of nutrition packed into those small bean packages! Corn and potato—the most common chip ingredients—are mostly empty calories.  But our bean and rice chips provide 5 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber. They’re also certified gluten-free, Non-GMO Project Verified, kosher, vegan and allergy-friendly.FullSizeRender-7.jpgFullSizeRender-9.jpg

All of Beanfields Bean and Rice snacks are vegan. Even our Nacho and Jalapeño Nacho chips do not contain dairy as an ingredient and are perfect for vegan diets. What you eat and what you feed your family- these are highly personal choices. Yet almost everybody is now interested in alternatives to meat that are less expensive, more convenient, healthier, and kinder. That means a very different relationship with the animals we use for food, if we use them at all. At Beanfields, we do our part by providing a yummy, convenient and plant-based snack with 5 grams of protein. It’s a perfect transition food for all you budding vegans out there!FullSizeRender-17.jpg
