Instead of making its crispy chip snacks with genetically starchy potatoes and unhealthy trans fats, Beanitos are a clean snack that's made with beans.

The white bean, black bean and pinto bean chips come in a variety of flavors, offering healthy alternatives to favorites like BBQ, Sea Salt and Cheddar. The chips are all-natural and are made without the use of gluten, trans fats, corn, MSG or preservatives. What you can expect to find in the snack are whole grains, pure sunflower or safflower oil, cane sugar, along with other easy-to-pronounce powdered ingredients like tomato, onion and chipotle pepper, depending on the flavor of the chips. The base of beans make the snack high in fiber and protein, as well as a great option for a low-glycemic, kosher and vegan snack.
