Beanitos, Black Bean Chips, 6 oz (170 g)
By Beanitos97 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

PurposeFull Snacking for Human Beans
Beanitos Black Bean Chips are the only black bean chips that are 100% corn free! Yes, we said absolutely no corn! Distinctively delicious with a crispy crunch, we thought it was high time to kick the corn and make chips that taste great and actually have some nutritional value! Wow, what a concept! You see, corn is cheap, and it's used to make ethanol gas for cars, to get cows fat, and as an ingredient in over 4,000 products in your local supermarket! It's not hard to understand then, why major university research indicates that the typical Western diet consist of over 60% corn! Hmmm, let's break that down: Cows are fed corn to get fat and our diets are mostly corn; so could it be that cutting back on corn and eating Beanitos might help you manage your waistline? We think so, and here's why:
Beanitos are lab tested and certified to be low glycemic and will not spike your blood sugar! Beanitos Black Bean Chips have a GI of 33 and GL of 3. Those other guys who make corn and potato chips don't bother to test, because they know their chips aren't low glycemic!
Rest assured, all Beanitos Bean Ships are always Gluten Free - consistently testing less than 3 PPM! Wheat Free, Soy Free & Potato Free too!
Fiber make you feel full, and Beanitos Bean Chips have more fiber in a single serving than some chips have in a whole bay! Compare the fiber in Beanitos to the fiber in corn and potato chips and you'll see the only thing those other chips are high in is empty calories.
Complete 4g Protein
A complete protein supplies essential amino acids, our bodies' building blocks. Beanitos have 2 1/2 times the protein of corn and potato chips--and theirs is not 'complete' protein.
Non-GMO Project Verified
In addition to being a nutritionally superior snack, Beanitos are Non-GMO Project verified. This means we take specific steps to minimize the possible introduction of any ingredients that have been bioengineered (genetically modified). We think it is the tight thing to do: for our bodies and our planet.
Beans Without Gas??
It's true! We created a unique, natural and proprietary way to make Beanitos without the common side effects some people associate with eating beans. But remember, Beanitos are high in fiber. So don't eat a whole bag full of Beanitos the first time you switch!
Whole black beans, whole grain rice (brown and/or long grain white), pure sunflower oil, guar bean gum, sea salt.
Allergy Information: Made in a facility that may also use soy, dairy, seeds, wheat, corn, eggs and tree nuts.

iHerb Customer Reviews
If you're like me and don't eat meat, you're constantly looking for new sources of protein, sources other than the usual whey and soy standbys. That's why I like Beanitos, they have a respectable amount of protein and they are surprisingly filling, even to the point of being a bit heavy. Even better, they are gluten-free, so I can serve them to my gluten sensitive friends. I'll buy these again and again, probably.
Sorry. I had high expectations for this chip but discovered that I much prefer Beanfield's rice and bean chip to this brand. But this might be just a matter of personal preference so you might give these a try and see how you like them.
