Polka Bean

Bean-Based Snacks & Treats

Polka Bean products came from the idea that delicious dishes can and should be made for people with even the most severe food allergies. Polka Bean creator Wendy Butters started making tasty foods from beans in order avoid common allergens like wheat and nuts.

What started with creative recipes to make bean-based treats for coworkers and friends became a booming business. Polka Bean has grown to offer a selection of delectable cookie doughs, chocolate hummus and marinated chickie beans that are dairy free, soy free, nut free, gluten free, vegetarian and vegan. To try these allergen-free products, buy local at the SLC Downtown Farmers Market and Wasatch Front Farmers Market.

Wendy Butters

A fan of the legume and creative baker, Wendy Butters had a dear friend with multiple food allergies. She started experimenting with recipes so her friend and others with wheat and nut allergies could enjoy tasty snack. Polka Bean was born, and we started making ready-to-eat foods from garbanzo beans and selling them at local farmer’s markets. We think beans are the most underrated produce item and hopes to motivate others to add them to a variety of dishes. One taste of chocolate hummus might convince you.
