Based in Colorado, BeanSmash! is the brainchild of a group of frustrated dry bean enthusiasts. You see, Trinidad Benham is the largest producer of dry beans in the United States. And though we’re proud of our 100-year heritage, we’re afraid that dry bean consumption has stalled, despite all the proven health benefits that this superfood offers.
As you may know, beans are one of the best sources of plant-based protein, with non-GMO dry beans being the most nutrient rich. That’s because dry beans are not processed and are therefore free of added salt, fat and the BPA that’s found in most canned beans. However, prepping them can be a commitment that can require overnight soaking, multi-hour cook times and seasoning knowledge. Not to mention, dry beans are sold in one-pound bags, which make more than enough for a full meal. (Hello, storage!) With BeanSmash!, we set out to remedy
all of that.
BeanSmash! delivers dry beans that are simply steamed, smashed and dehydrated, offering the same health benefits without the hassle. Served in their own single-serving cup, BeanSmash! can be prepared quickly by just adding hot water. With zero artificial ingredients, BeanSmash! is a warm and tasty protein-packed snack or dip. All BeanSmash! items have at least 10 grams of protein and are non-GMO, gluten-free and vegetarian. The perfect protein-rich antidote to the afternoon slump or the after-school snack.
