Soybeans are special.
When it comes to protein, they trounce all other beans. That’s what makes Seapoint Farms Dry Roasted Edamame (green soybeans) an excellent snack to munch on or sprinkle on your salad.
One serving (¼ cup) has 14 grams of protein, along with 7 or 8 grams of fiber and 10 percent of a day’s iron, all for just 130 calories and around 150 milligrams of sodium.
You won’t find many vegetarian snacks with 14 grams of protein. (A quarter cup of nuts typically has 5 to 7 grams.) Choose from Lightly Salted or—if you live dangerously—Spicy Wasabi.
Cruncha Ma-Me freeze-dried edamame delivers more sodium—160 to 280 mg—in its smaller (0.7 oz.) bag. True to its name, Cruncha Ma-Me’s Naked flavor is sodium-free.
