Celiac Awareness Month Day 15: Beanitos

Today’s Celiac Disease Awareness Month is brought to you by Beanitos. These bean chips and puffs have been mentioned by Celiac and the Beast several times online – probably because we’re always eating them! Our neighborhood Fresh & Easy always stocks these at a great value.

This is typically how you find Beanitos at our house – because the bags are always empty.

Empty...like always

Empty…like always

Beanitos are made from fiber and protein-rich whole beans. They’ve got a variety of flavors made from white beans, black beans, and pinto beans. I’m more of a white and pinto bean chip person (even though I prefer black beans IRL), while non-GFBF swears by the black beans (but likes pinto beans IRL – go figure).

These chips are more than just snacks – it’s a ton of protein. Their example of about 12 chips or 1 oz. of Restaurant Style White Bean Chips contains:

  • 4 grams complete protein
  • 6 grams fiber
  • 16 grams carbohydrates
  • 7 grams fat with NO trans fats
  • NO sugar added
  • 140 calories

Beanitos are:

  • Certified GF
  • Corn free
  • Vegan
  • Certified low glycemic
  • Certified kosher
  • Non-GMO

I wanted to highlight their new WHITE BEAN chips – because one it includes their new Restaurant Style chip – MY FAVORITE. These corn-free “restaurant style” chip made with white beans. It’s also made in nacho cheese flavor, which tastes like a less tangy Dorito (and also made from beans). A snack size bag of Beanitos white bean chips packs 9 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein.

Restaurant style: INGREDIENTS: Whole Navy Beans, Whole Grain Long Brown Rice and/or Long Grain White Rice, Pure Sunflower and/or Safflower Oil, Guar Bean Gum, Sea Salt.

Nacho cheese: INGREDIENTS: Whole Navy Beans, Whole Grain Long Brown Rice and/or Long Grain White Rice, Pure Sunflower and/or Safflower Oil, Cheddar Cheese Blend [Cheddar Cheese (Pasteurized Milk, Cheese Cultures, Salt, Enzymes) Whey, Buttermilk, Annatto], Sea Salt, Tomato Powder, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Spices, Lactic Acid, Paprika, Citric Acid, Guar Bean Gum.

Beanitos are GFCO certified! Here’s their GLUTEN-FREE statement: We are proud that Beanitos are gluten-free. They contain no gluten ingredients, and they are made on dedicated gluten-free lines. We also send Beanitos out to third-party labs for gluten-free verification and consistently report less than 3 parts per million gluten (<3ppm). This level is virtually undetectable and exceeds the proposed U.S. gluten-free standard of <20ppm. It also exceeds the Canadian gluten-free standard of <5ppm.

They’ve also just launched their puffs – kind of like Cheetos but made out of BEANS! Check these out!

    Love the white bean chips. For those that can’t have corn it’s exactly like eating corn chips! All the chips are super crispy and delicious. Doesn’t taste “healthy” but they are great
