New in the Market: Bean and Rice Chips

by Jo-Ann Heslin, MA, RD, CDN on May 2, 2011 · 5 comments

We love to try new foods. Some don’t measure up and some become staples in our kitchen. See what you think.

As an alternative to tortilla or potato chips, Beanfields has just introduced chips made from navy beans, black beans and long grain rice. The chips are non-GMO and gluten free, with no preservatives or additives. They come in four flavors: Naturally Unsalted, Sea Salt, Pico De Gallo, and Sea Salt & Pepper. All of the flavors are as crunchy as traditional chips. A one-ounce serving (approximately 12 chips) has 140 calories, 6 grams of fat, 4 grams of protein, 18 grams of carb, no sugar and 4 grams of fiber. The sodium varies depending on flavor: Naturally Unsalted has only 5 milligrams in a serving, Sea Salt 140 milligrams, Sea Salt & Pepper 160 milligrams, and Pico De Gallo 190 milligrams.

Keep in mind that although these chips may be made with good-for-you ingredients, portion size still counts!

I honeslty prefer Beanitos, it seems like Beanfields is riding the wave with the same marketing practices. I’ll stick with my OG snack, they actually provide 5g of Fiber too.

BeanField Chips are awesome and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. I’ll also bet they blow beanitos out of the water nutritionally and in my opinion they taste much better. You can’t beat organically grown and no GMO additives, let’s go Beanfields!
