At Biena, we love a good snack – who doesn’t! Something with a light crisp, powerful flavor, and good-for-you benefits is our go-to. For a long time, it was difficult to find a store-bought snack that was delicious and healthy. That’s why we created our roasted and puffed chickpea snacks! Finally, something that tastes good and you can feel good about eating. Why else should you choose Biena? We’ll tell you!
We’ve prioritized flavor and health from the start
Poorvi Patodia is the founder and CEO of Biena. She’s also a self-proclaimed bonafide snack food junkie – relatable, right? She often grabbed snacks when hustling from meetings to her kids’ soccer practices, but found it difficult to fulfill her snack food obsession with snacks that weren’t loaded with fat, calories, and artificial ingredients. Where were the healthy options?
Poori envisioned transforming the nutrient-packed chickpeas she ate as a child into delicious, convenient snacks that would become a staple snack in the pantries of Americans. She set out to make this a reality, developing the recipe in her own kitchen and roasting chickpeas until she achieved the perfect light, crispy texture – all while keeping the protein, fiber, and nutrients of a whole chickpea.
Biena was officially launched in 2012 to provide healthy snacks that don’t sacrifice crunch or taste. Since then, we’ve grown to multiple product lines available in 15,000 retail stores across the country. Taste, texture, and health have been our focus from day one, and will continue to be as we keep growing.
Plant-based protein and other healthy features
Potato chips and many other snack options at your local grocery store are full of empty calories and are low on protein and fiber. They may taste good, but they won’t keep you feeling full for very long. Not Biena! We’ve intentionally designed our snacks to offer more protein and fiber while reducing fat without losing flavor.
Our roasted Chickpea Snacks provide twice the protein, six times the fiber, and 40% less fat than chips. Each roasted chickpea snack also offers 5-6g of plant protein per serving and 5-6 g of fiber per serving, plus no artificial ingredients!
Want a healthier alternative to traditional puffed snacks? Our Chickpea Puffs have 6g of plant protein and 30-40% fewer carbs per serving. They’re also corn free, rice free, grain free, gluten free, non-GMO and vegetarian, making them the perfect addition to the snack section of your pantry.
Following the keto diet? Our Sea Salt Keto Puffs provide 5g of plant protein and 5g of net carbs per serving. They’re made with chickpeas, lentils, peas, and sea salt – that’s it! Nothing artificial here.

We puffed up our chickpeas to create a light and airy crunchy texture.
