Beanfield’s Bean and Rice Chips

There is a sense that tortilla chips are not the healthiest thing to snack upon and that one should have smaller portions when it comes to eating these chips. Beanfield’s has an entire line of chips that look to capture the tortilla flavor and mouth feel profiles and has a wide enough variety of flavors to keep snackers interested no matter how often they eat the chips. Beanfield’s chips are available in unsalted, sea salt, salt and pepper, ranch, nacho, pico de gallo, and barbecue flavors. The 1 ounce serving size of Beanfield’s chips has about 140 calories of which 50 come from fat. There is a total of about 5 grams of fat in a 1 ounce serving which is roughly 8% of an individual’s recommended daily intake.

There is a small amount of sodium which is much less for the unsalted variety – 5 mg, but the sodium content of the other varieties is fairly low as well ranging from about 95 mg up to about 190 for the nacho variety. These chips are seasoned at a level that is proper for the chips meaning that one is sated when they eat a handful. The bean side of the chips makes for a much more substantial hearty mouth feel than tortilla chips meaning that individuals will meet the needs less in the way to feel full. Each of the varietals of Beanfield’s being and rice chips are corn free, do not possess any genetically modified organisms, and are gluten free on top of that – the product is fine to eat if one is vegan or has a wide variety of dietary restrictions. Another important thing about these chips are the protein contents of the same 1 ounce serving. This ounce contains 4 g of protein, substantially greater than similar products in the snack food aisle. Check out your local natural or health food store for Beanfield’s chips, visit online retailers if they are not stocked around your neck of the woods and see exactly what the company is all about. I know that we will be snacking on these chips through the next few months at NeuFutur headquarters.
