The packaging of Seapoint Farms Dry Roasted Edamame Goji Blend declared that this was a "Heart Health" snack, "Rich in Antioxidants." From the nutrition facts to the stellar ingredients list, and taste, this product is great all the way - except that the one thing the packaging doesn't tell you is how much antioxidants is present - how can you proclaim "Rich in Antioxidants" and then not say how much in there.
But what we do know is that a 30 gram serving of Seapoint Farms Dry Roasted Edamame Goji Blend provides 120 calories, 3 grams of total fat (5% of the daily value), no saturated fat, 140 mg sodium, 11 grams of protein, 7 grams of fiber (28% of the daily value) and 5 grams of sugars. The ingredients are soybeans, sea salt, organic goji berries. That's it! Boy, I was hoping this would also be tasty, because I might never touch chips again if that's the case.
And it wasn't bad at all. The first thing you have to get over is that it doesn't taste salty - and I'm used to all crunchy snacks being salty. There is a hint, but I did find myself wishing that there was a little more ... but then again, not really (The 2010 US Dietary Guidelines mention us watching sodium specifically, and I'm a member of that 1300 mg per day category - which means 1 serving of this is already a little more than 10% of the RDA). The Gofi berries - which provide the antioxidants - contribute an interesting change in texture, from the crunchy soybeans. They give off a little pop of sweetness also. This snack might be an acquired taste for some, because it's not what you are used to. But I say - get used to it because the nutrition - especially for a snack can't be beat.
I bought a 3.5 ounce bag (3.5 servings) for $2.59 which is quite expensive, so I hope they sell this in bulk somewhere. Plus I bought it at Mother Earth Natural Foods Store, which has some out of this world prices. But I will definitely be keeping this in stock - I'm more of a crunchy snacker than a chocoholic, so I can see this saving the day over and over again.
