Local Vendor Focus: Beanitos Inc.
One of the brightest rising stars in the natural foods world is based right here in Austin: Beanitos Bean Chips. In 2009 brothers Doug and Dave Foreman set out to create a crunchy snack chip that was full of nutrition and great flavor. The Beanitos Original Bean Chip was born, gaining fast popularity in Austin and finding its way into co-ops and other stores across the country.
Did I mention the chips are delicious? My particular favorite is the new restaurant style chip made from white beans and sea salt. Its an update on the traditional corn tortilla chip, accentuating the flavor, fiber and protein of USA grown beans and very few other simple ingredients. All varieties of Beanitos chips are gluten-free, vegan, Kosher, cholesterol-free, high fiber, low-glycemic and corn free. Local, healthy and tasty, well done guys!
