LOS ANGELES, Feb. 27 /CSRwire/ - Drawing on their Vegan and Non-GMO farming roots, Beanfields, LLC is inviting all snackers to experience socially responsible, allergen-free snacking in a different, more delicious way.  Beanfields Bean & Rice chips, best known for being nutrient-packed, family-owned and values-based, is launching its latest flavor extension in America’s #1 flavor, Nacho—with a twist. They are vegan, gluten- and corn- free. It will be the first chip to bring all the flavor of cheese without the dairy.

The official launch of the [Vegan] Nacho chips will be at the Natural Products Expo West, the world’s largest natural foods trade show, March 8-11, 2012 at the Anaheim, CA Convention Center. A 6 oz. bag of Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips retails for $2.99 - $3.99, and is found in over 500 natural food stores in 20 western states. The 1.5 oz. snack size bags retail for $1.19 - $1.49.

Non-GMO Project verified products continue to be one of the fastest growing segments in the natural and organic food industry (1), while gluten-free sales continue to boom despite the weak economy—commanding over a billion dollars in annual sales (2).

“We set out to re-create the taste of the world’s largest selling tortilla chip flavor, nacho, without using any of the FDA’s 8 most common ingredients that trigger food allergies, including dairy” said Reed Braude-Glidden, Beanfields Founder and President. “A difficult task that some thought impossible.” Beanfields’s next move: they turned to Dr. Jonathan Gordon, the food scientist behind the dairy-free flavor of Silk Soy Milk. Beanfields Co-Founder and Vice President, Roy Glidden, says he “knew that if anyone could create an all-natural, mouth-watering, dairy free nacho flavor for our chips, it would be Gordon.

Beanfields’ Nacho Bean & Rice Chips are a cheesy tasting snack alternative that provide better nutrition, less environmental impact and is suitable for those who suffer from lactose intolerance, are looking to avoid dairy, or maintain a Vegan lifestyle.

Evolving the Chip
Beanfields takes wholesome and nutritious beans and blends them with long grain rice to create delicious snacks that are loaded with fiber and protein. In fact Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips contain double the fiber and protein of most corn tortilla or potato chips.

Consumers can feel good about buying these fun-to-eat chips. Every 1 oz. serving of Beanfields chips (about 13 tortilla chips) contains 4 grams of complete protein and 4 grams of fiber – that’s as much fiber as a ½ cup serving of raisin bran, and as much protein as a 4 oz. glass of milk. The new nacho chip raises the bar yet again on the taste you can expect from a healthy snack.
