Bean chips have been on the market for some time now and we really like the trend. It’s a good way to start getting more nutrition into our diets. There are a few of us on the G-Free Foodie team who really love bean chips – so when we got a box of Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips we could not wait to try them. And let me tell you Beanfields did not disappoint!
Our team had the chance to taste all 5 flavors: Naturally Unsalted, Sea Salt, Sea Salt & Pepper, Pico de Gallo, and Nacho. The first thing to mention is the texture, which in our humble opinion, was perfect - light, crispy, flaky – just what you want in a chip.
As far as the flavors go the overwhelming favorite was Nacho. I’m not sure how, but Beanfields has come up with a Nacho flavored chip without any of the top 8 food allergens. It’s not the same flavor as the world’s best selling Nacho chip, but it is delicious and has a cleaner taste. Coming in a close second was Pico de Gallo, zesty and delicious. As for the Sea Salt & Pepper – our pepper lovers thought there wasn’t enough pepper while others thought the pepper was too strong, and still others thought it was just right – we’ll let you be the judge. The Sea Salt flavor was fantastic and would be perfect with your favorite dip or to top a taco salad. And while the Naturally Unsalted was our least favorite, it is a great option for anyone watching their salt intake.
In every serving of Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips you will find 4 grams of complete protein, soluble and insoluble fiber, complex carbohydrates, and minerals – including potassium and magnesium. And to top that, they are all free of the FDA’s eight most common food allergens, including milk, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat and soybeans. So, go out and buy a bag – or two, or three. You’ll be glad you did!
