Beanitos Inc., maker of The Original Bean Chip, is introducing The Original Bean Puff. The Austin, Texas-based company is rolling out two varieties of the new white bean puffs on the East Coast—White Cheddar and Hot Chili Lime. They will make their debut at the 2014 Summer Fancy Food Show, at booth No. 4274, June 29-July 1 in New York.
White Cheddar delivers a sharp and savory cheese taste while Hot Chili Lime combines the taste of real lime juice layered over the heat of hot red peppers. A 1-oz. serving packs 4g of fiber and up to 5g of protein; additionally, Beanitos are non-GMO, low glycemic and gluten free and contain no MSG or preservatives.
“Our new bean puffs are made from super nutritious navy beans, without corn or wheat, and baked to crispy perfection,” says Doug Foreman, Beanitos founder. “The fact is, they taste great without compromising any of their nutritional value. We challenge anyone to put Beanitos Puffs in a blind taste test against puffs made from corn or wheat because we know Beanitos will come out on top not only in taste but in nutrition as well. Beanitos Puffs are verified by the Non-GMO Project and loaded with fiber and protein along with a healthy lower calorie count. It’s an all-around winner.”
Adds Beanitos CEO Dan Costello, “Our new puffs are a snacking game changer. In this day and age, consumers want healthy snacks that taste great. There’s a shortage of options that achieve both. That’s why we created Beanitos Puffs. They are really delicious, and when you add in the nutritional power of beans, you get a better-for-you snacking experience that can’t be beat.”
