Broad beans are a true superfood! A member of the legume family, broad beans are known around the world by many names, including fava, faba, bell, and field beans. Sweeter and richer in flavor than many other beans, broad beans are also an excellent source of protein, fiber, and zinc. (They’re rich in folate and B vitamins as well!)
How are your bean snacks prepared?
After soaking whole broad beans and washing them, the beans are lightly roasted in a high oleic sunflower oil and seasoned to perfection!
How does Bada Bean Bada Boom differ from fried snacks?
Because our bean snacks are roasted using relatively little oil, they’re comparatively very low in fat. (Deep-fried snacks often contain 10g of fat or more per serving!)
What’s the best way to enjoy Bada Bean Bada Boom?
However you like! Bada Bean snacks can be enjoyed right out of the bag, tossed in a salad, sprinkled on a soup, or used to top yogurt or oatmeal. Be creative, and let us know on social media how you like to eat them -- we’re @badabeansnacks on all platforms!
What is the shelf life of a bag after opening it?
If the bag has been opened and resealed, the snacks inside should maintain freshness for an additional 5-7 days. (No need to refrigerate!)
Why is Bada Bean Bada Boom made in China?
In the process of developing our bean snacks, we searched the globe for the highest-quality broad beans. Though broad beans are grown around the world, we found that the best-quality broad beans are grown in their native country of China. Since providing the highest-quality product is always the top priority for us, Bada Bean Bada Boom is produced in a facility that conforms to the highest standards of global food safety and ethics.
I’ve enjoyed Enlightened Broad Bean Crisps in a black bag before. Are these the same product?
Yes! The recipe for our bean snacks is the still the one you know and love. Inside the bag, nothing has changed.
Why were these snacks rebranded?
Since the Enlightened brand name is most associated with ice cream, we're shining a spotlight on these plant-based powerhouses by giving them their own brand. We're excited to introduce more people to the amazing flavor and nutrition of our bean snacks with a brand that captures how fun and delicious beans can be.

I've heard some people have a bad reaction to fava beans / broad beans. Is this true?
A genetic condition called G6PD Deficiency can result in a reaction to broad beans called favism. (In people with G6PD Deficiency, household items such as aspirin or mothballs can trigger the same reaction. In many U.S. states, you may also have been tested for G6PD Deficiency at birth.)

from Johns Hopkins. If you happen to feel unwell after eating broad beans for the first time, please be sure to seek medical assistance.
