About Beanfields

Beanfields’ mission: to combine social responsibility, better nutrition and award-winning taste by featuring America’s super food, beans, one of the world’s most nutritious and sustainable foods, a favorite in almost every cuisine worldwide. One little change can make a big difference. In this case the change from corn to beans.

At Beanfields, kind and sustainable business practices are founding principles for everyone on the team. As a certified B corporation, we are making a formal commitment to contribute to a community of companies with resonant goals. We relish the opportunity to be part of the evolving conversation about best practices for food companies in the 21st century.

Beanfields makes tortilla chips without corn, using beans and rice, a complete protein. All Beanfields chips are Gluten free, Non-GMO Project verified, vegan, food-allergy friendly and farmed and made in the USA. 

Beanfields Bean and Rice Chips provide a healthier alternative that most people can switch to seamlessly from the snack they are eating now. In doing so they enjoy health and energy benefits. The yummy taste helps people become receptive to the health message. A 1oz serving of Beanfields Bean and Rice Tortilla Chips has 4gs protein, 4gs fiber, and 5gs fat. Twice the protein and fiber of most potato or tortilla chips and about 28% less fat.

The Change We Seek®

Beanfields seeks a future where high-quality, diverse foods are available to every person. Beans are important for food security in the US and on our planet as a whole. Beanfields seeks a world where food is made in a way that is healthy, kind, and sustainable. Plant-based protein sources are healthy for people, kind to animals, and sustainable for the Earth. Low allergen protein sources, like the ones used in Beanfields Snacks make this protein accessible to more people. Beanfields seeks to educate people about food choices through the accessible medium of a healthier snack.
