As a person who exercises regularly and follows a strict diet, it’s hard to find good quality chips that tastes good, while also beneficial to the body. Most chips I find will say “100 percent natural” but is fried in oils such as canola, soybean, and vegetable, all considered the worst oils you can use. Some chips also will contain a bunch of oxides and preservatives that makes the chip taste good, while adding less seasoning to balance out the ingredients. I have been a huge fan of Taki’s, and its bold spicy flavor. But after reading the ingredient list that contains MSG, red and yellow dyes, BHT, and soybean oil just to name a few, I’m surprised I’m still alive after all the huge bags I used to eat in one sitting throughout the years! I have given up on chips all together until I went to Whole Foods and so happened to come across the chip’s aisle, I couldn’t resist myself any longer. I browsed along the shelves and came across these chips that looked like Doritos, so I read the bag and it said “Beanfield’s Bean Chips”. I wanted to try it out since I’m a huge fan of beans, and the ingredients was all-natural quality ingredients! It was the best chip I ever had in a long time.
The first thing that caught my attention was that Beanfield’s chips Is made from quality beans such as Black and Navy beans, along with brown rice to give it that crunchy texture. Unlike corn that is made for tortillas, beans have less water consumption and less fertilization, making it safe for the climate and farming. By it being made from beans you also get a good percentage of quality protein, as 1 bag contains around 24 grams of protein. When you take that first bite, you don’t get the gritty texture from regular tortilla chips. Instead, you get a rich, smooth texture while having a crunch that isn’t hard and rough. I personally like the texture, it isn’t as tough as I thought it would be, and by me being a fan of beans it gives the taste a big enhancement.
Beanfield’s chips is also vegan-friendly and contains simple ingredients. The ingredients are Navy beans, brown rice, fried in safflower oil (one of the best oils to have), and seasoned with garlic powder, onion powder, natural flavors, and paprika for color. Instead of having hundreds of additives and acids, Beanfields only contains two acids: Citric acid and Lactic acid. Pea protein and rice syrup solids is also added to keep its shape and preventing the beans and rice mixture from falling apart. The best thing about those ingredients is that you don’t feel gross after eating an entire bag, like you would if you ate Doritos or Takis. Instead, you will feel full and satisfied, like you ate a pleasant meal afterwards.
Beanfield’s chips comes in a variety of great flavors:
• Spicy Queso
• Jalapeno Nacho
• Jalapeno Lime
• Himalayan Pink Salt
• Pink Salt & Vinegar
• Sea Salt
• Pico de Gallo
• Regular (black bean)
• Cheddar & Sour Cream
My favorites are the Nacho and Pico de Gallo, and my absolute favorite is the cheddar and sour cream. The flavor of the cheddar is rich and bold, combined with the bean flavor, it’s hard to beat. If you want to take it up a notch, you can substitute the regular tortilla chips for bean chips and make some delicious nachos that I guarantee will blow you away!
In conclusion, if you are somebody who’s having a hard time finding the perfect snack to fit your daily fitness needs, or struggling due to allergic reasons, I highly recommend trying out Beanfields bean chips. It is twice better than tortilla chips in my opinion, and you can really taste the flavors due to it being all 100% natural and organic.
