RW Garcia’s New Pulse Chips are Made from Protein-Rich Pulse Crops
RW Garcia recently debuted a new line of artisan tortilla chips made from pulse crops. With the UN declaring 2016 as the International Year of the Pulse, ingredients such as dried beans, chickpeas and lentils have been more popular than ever. These tasty chips give consumers an easy way to incorporate more pulses into their diet by swapping out their regular tortilla chips.
RW Garcia’s Pulse Chips are gourmet tortilla chips made from pulse crops such as black beans, lentils and chickpeas. The pulses are then combined with ingredients such as red quinoa, chia seeds and red pepper flakes. The result is healthy chips that are high in both protein and fiber, while also being low in fat.

2. RW GARCIA CHIPS AND CRACKERS
We love snacking on tortilla chips and when they are a little healthier, we can feel better about eating them. The RW Garcia Mixt bag of tortilla chips has both yellow and blue corn chips which are great with salsa. I like the RW Garcia 3-seed crackers in the sweet potato and beet flavors which contain flaxseed, sesame seeds and chia seeds. They are gluten-free and are awesome with a homemade corn dip or hummus.

- Go Forth and Eat Freely – with MixtBag
Go Forth and Eat FreelyHolidays and any food-related outings causes immediate stress and anxiety for many families with food allergies. For me, there is always the added worry of feeling a little more laid back when we are socializing which (may) lead to a possible allergy trigger. It happens to all of us at one time of another- we are happy, we are relaxed and sometimes we just do something and we don’t even realize it until it’s too late. How do we prevent even these tiny little mishaps? Don’t fight the food war, join it….Healthy Crunching
So, I have this self-proclaimed issue with people who crunch too loudly…it’s similar to nails on a chalkboard. I know people can’t help it, I understand that nobody can control how much their head vibrates when they chew or how it echoes through my brain but I wanted to get past this. I wanted a holiday where healthy and patriotic and snacking all went hand in hand. I wanted to share the crunch factor in a way that people were asking for more and I (even with my noise issues) would be happy to share. The wonderful people at RW Garcia sent us a bunch of their Yellow & Blue and Red & Yellow MixtBag chips. How else do you feed 130 hungry people and show patriotism? (which, sadly, I just realized the whole color and July 4th relevance while writing this post…I’m slow). I found RW Garcia products years ago as well and they are one of the top allergy-friendly snack items that I recommend to my clients that I consult with (they are also in my ebook). When I began looking more into what was in our foods as well as the labels, their Non-GMO label and use of vegetables to enhance the flavors of their products made me jump at introducing them to my (then) younger, picky eaters. My children never saw the ingredients, they just saw chips and ate them. Win for this mom, win for my children because they are snacking on heartier, healthier chips and win for those who we share with around us.

- RW Garcia: ‘We’re the best kept secret in snack food’ – Food Business News
By, Monica Watrous
NEW YORK — RW Garcia, a San Jose, Calif.-based maker of specialty snacks, introduced a new line of tortilla chips made with pulses at the Summer Fancy Food Show, held June 26-28 in New York. Varieties include black bean with red quinoa and chia seeds, chickpea with red bell pepper flakes, and lentil with amaranth.
The timing of the product launch couldn’t be better, said Genelle Chetcuti, senior director of marketing. Her mother is Margaret Garcia, vice-president of sales and marketing for the family-owned company, who first learned about pulse crops last year.
“We started playing with the idea and doing some R.&D., and all of a sudden it comes out that 2016 was declared the International Year of Pulses,” Ms. Chetcuti said. “And we thought, ‘This is timely.’ It makes perfect sense. It goes with our sustainability efforts. They’re so nutrient dense and have protein and fiber and are low in fat.”

Finger on the Pulse
As most readers have no doubt heard, it’s the International Year of Pulses, designated as such by the United Nations to position pulses as a primary source of protein and other essential nutrients. This goal was already on the minds of a good number of exhibitors at the Summer Fancy Food Show. In addition to chickpea-, lentil-, bean- and other pulse-based noshes from the likes of Beanfields, Beanitos, The Good Bean and Biena, RW Garcia displayed a new line of pulse tortilla chips whose three varieties feature 26 percent black bean lentil and chickpea, respectively, along with ancient grains.
