Beanitos, from Bean Brand Foods, Austin, TX, are chips made with black and pinto beans and flax seeds. The low-glycemic snack is free of corn, gluten, wheat and soy. The chips are high in fiber and contain 1,200 mg of omega-3 and twice the protein of corn or potato chips. Each 1-oz serving contains 5 g of fiber, so Beanitos have an increased satiety profile compared with other chips and won’t cause a spike in blood sugar levels.
