BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Always hungry to meet the challenge of creating a better-for-you snack that also satisfies and satiates, Biena combines the humble chickpea with the spirit of snacking innovation with its debut of Rockin’ Ranch, the latest in its line of award-winning Roasted Chickpea Snacks.

It really brings the flavor without the snacking guilt.”

Already touted as one of the “Best New Grocery Store Snacks of 2016,” Rockin’ Ranch is the only ranch-flavored chickpea (a bean also known agriculturally as a pulse) snack on the market. Boasting the cool creaminess of traditional ranch, highlighted by a slight kick of tang, these roasted chickpeas bring big flavor and vegetarian-friendly nutrition. At 120 calories, five grams of protein and 24 percent of daily fiber per serving, Rockin’ Ranch Chickpea Snacks boast the “trifecta” of high protein and fiber with significantly less fat than nuts or chips.

Biena Chickpea Snacks are made with non-GMO ingredients, are gluten-free and sourced exclusively from family-owned farms in the United States. The company’s unique multi-stage roasting and seasoning process results in a snack that has a light, airy crunch and bolder flavor than other traditionally roasted chickpeas.

Always aiming to satisfy changing consumer tastes, Biena Chickpea Snacks continue to collect accolades. Just in time for Expo West 2016, Prevention Magazine named the Honey Roasted variety a “Cleanest Packaged Food Award” winner, and Clean Eating gave the Sea Salt variety a “Clean Choice Award.” In addition, the line also includes Cinnamon Crunch, Barbeque and the Shape Magazine award-winning Habanero.
