Beanitos bean chips are made from beans plus whole-grain rice, fried in vegetable oil then seasoned with sea salt. The fat and salt puts them on a par calorie-, fat- and sodium-wise with other chips, meaning a 10-chip, 1-ounce portion contains about 140 calories, 7 grams fat and 150 milligrams sodium. The difference between Beanitos bean chips and regular potato chips is the ingredients: The Chipotle BBQ are made from black beans, the Cheddar Cheese from pinto and flax seeds, a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. Beanitos are high in fiber (5 grams per 1-ounce serving of 10 chips), minerals (4 percent of the daily value of calcium and 6 percent irons), and protein (4 grams) while being gluten- and wheat-free.
