Snack Spotlight: Whatusee Chickpea Breadcrumbs

 

 

Our delicious Chickpea Breadcrumbs act like breading and bake like panko with only one organic, protein packed ingredient: organic chickpeas.

Use them in place of breadcrumbs in any recipe to add flavor, protein, and fiber while keeping the same crunchy breadcrumb texture that you've come to love!

 

 

About the company

When Greg was just a hungry medical student looking to get through a crazy day at work without running to the vending machine, he started roasting chickpeas at night to help deal with his daily 4:00pm hunger pangs.

His coworkers would look over with curiosity when they heard the afternoon crunching, and inevitably he would offer up some snacks. They were a hit! That's when he realized he was on to something special, but it wasn't until he shared his idea with a friend that the snacks turned into a business. Jimmy and Greg had been friends since college who bonded over healthy eating and active living. Jimmy had finished a big real estate deal and they were brainstorming new projects for him to take on.

Greg suggested that they start a business to make it easier for people to live healthy lives. He showed Jimmy his chickpea snacks and they decided that they needed to bring them to the world.

Company Spotlight: Hippeas Organic Chickpea Puffs

 

The Snack that gives back

This is a call to the modern hippies. The men and women who live for the now. Who want goodness for mind, body and soil and rally behind those that want the same. Who believe that – chickpea by chickpea – we can change things for the better. And who like, totally, love snacks.

We believe in change from the ground up. That’s why we support Farm Africa, a charity who do just that.

Working in Sub-Saharan Africa, they help farmers become more pioneering and productive, climate-smart and competitive, enabling them and their communities to grow their own way out of poverty.

These are some words that have been used to describe our roasted chickpea snacks. Not only do they taste great, but they’re packed with protein and fiber, and low in fat – so they satisfy your hunger without weighing you down. In fact, compared to a serving of dry-roasted peanuts, our snacks have approximately 3X the amount of fiber, 30% fewer calories and 70% less fat. They’re also made with all-natural ingredients – so you can feel good about what you’re putting in your body.

 

Cinnamon Maple: Bold Vietnamese Cinnamon, a touch of Pure Maple Syrup and Evaporated Cane Juice. They’re sweet enough to satisfy those sweet cravings, without being too sweet.

Honey Roasted: Real wildflower honey rouded out with sea salt for a sweet and slightly salty taste experience.

Sea Salt: Lightly dusted with sea salt harvested from the Atlantic Ocean. The original crunchy roasted chickpea snack that started our brand!

Barbeque: Classic BBQ flavor with tangy, sweet, spicy, and smokey undertones that is sure to keep you satisfied.

About the Company

Several years ago, I was grocery shopping and a woman was sampling a new healthy snack.  It tasted okay but when I turned the package over – I was disappointed to see it had a ton of fat and little nutrition. That was the beginning of what led me to start Biena.  So many of the healthy snacks on the market today leave you feeling unsatisfied. They leave you wanting more – because they don’t taste great, they don’t fill you up, or they’re full of junk. With my South Asian heritage, I grew up eating lots of lentils and chickpeas.  But it wasn’t till that experience that I started thinking about whether I could use them to create a new kind of snack.  Something that’s tasty, helps fill you up with good stuff, and doesn’t have all the fat and artificial ingredients that are in so many snacks out there.

Food Spotlight: Banza Chickpea Pasta

 
Delicious pasta without the guilt.  High protein pasta made from chickpeas

 
Protein: Nearly two times regular pasta

One serving of Banza has nearly double the protein as regular pasta. You're getting more protein than a protein bar in your pasta. Protein helps speed recovery after exercise, and will help keep you fuller for longer

Net Carbs: Nearly half regular pasta

It's all about balance. Regular pasta is mostly carbohydrates. Because Banza has more protein and more fiber, it has nearly half the net carbs as regular pasta.

Fiber: Over three times regular pasta

Banza has more than three times as much fiber as regular pasta per serving. Seven grams is as much fiber as a bowl of bran cereal.
 

Gluten Free, Grain Free
Banza is free from gluten, grain, and soy ingredients. No wheat, rice or corn present in this baby!

Heart Healthy
The fiber in chickpeas has been proven to help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol

Non-GMO, Vegan
Banza is an all natural product. It contains no genetically modified ingredients and is Vegan.
Low Glycemic
Chickpeas help keep blood sugar levels stable. Stable blood sugar levels help control appetite.

Allergen Safety
Banza is manufactured in a dedicated facility free from the major allergens

About the Company
Our mission is to change pasta forever, for the better. We believe in the power of improved nutrition. I learned about the importance of diet first hand.

Throughout college I had sinus infections. After four consecutive years of seeing doctors and going through antibiotics, I was told I would need to get surgery. Around the same time, I started to focus on my diet. It wasn't long before I realized that certain foods were flaring up my sinuses. By cutting gluten out of my diet, I learned I could forego sinus infections and surgery alltogether, and do it naturally.

I know I'm not the only one with a story like this. There are millions of people out there who would benefit from eating the right foods. Most probably don't even know it yet.

That's why we do what we do. By making a simple substitution, Banza for pasta, we believe that people will be one step closer to an improved diet, and maybe an improved livelihood.

Snack Spotlight: Tasty Karma Chickpea Chips – Chia and Sesame Crunch

 

 

Super-food Chia is loaded with protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants (higher than blueberries). Sesame adds to the crunch and makes these chips delicious and nutritious. Our proprietary method of making these chips makes sure that you get all the nutrients and it's not getting flushed off your system.

 

 
About the Company
We are an ex-Google couple passionate about fitness and delicious food.

When we looked around for healthy snacking options in the market, all we could find were snacks made of corn, potato or wheat. Although tasteful, these snacks were full of empty calories and didn't provide enough nutrition. The few options that seemed nutritious did not quite pass our taste test.

So we combined our love for cooking and fitness to create Tasty Karma, and embarked on a mission to offer a delicious, healthy alternative for active people. Our customers love our products and we are confident that you will too. Give us a try!

About the Company
I love food, and I’ve wanted to start a food company for as long as I can remember. I grew up with a mom who is an incredible cook, and a dad who is really into healthy foods. So I guess it’s not a surprise that as an adult, I’m obsessed with discovering, eating and making healthy foods that taste great.

Several years ago, I was grocery shopping and a woman was sampling a new healthy snack. It tasted okay but when I turned the package over – I was disappointed to see it had a ton of fat and little nutrition. Read More
