About KALA

KALA is a celebration of everything bean.

How do we love beans? Let us count the ways. Every blissful KALA snack blend is packed with crunchy, wholesome beans, from fava to chickpea. Always beautiful and endlessly delicious, KALA beans are the perfect combination of healthy and flavorful.

Small on the outside. Big on the inside.

At KALA, we roast and season the most beautiful beans we can find, mix in surprising ingredients like pineapple, curry, garlic and lime juice. The result? Light, vibrant, wholesome snacks, bursting with flavor. Now that's a beautiful bean worth celebrating.

The fava bean is so dense, it's smart.

We mentioned our good-looking beans, but a self-respecting bean doesn't get by on looks alone. The nutrient-dense fava bean is a perfect choice for roasting, creating exceptional texture and taste. Our top-quality fava beans are brimming with protein and fiber.

KALA origins

KALA snacks are proudly made by Bush Brothers & Company, better known as Bush’s Beans, a staple at your favorite cookouts and key ingredient in every great chili recipe. Over 100 years old, Bush Brothers & Company began as a family company, and remains one to this day.

KALA is a proud part of the Bush’s family tree, and reflects our passion for beautiful beans. We believe that quality is the best policy, and our distinctive KALA snacks are no exception. Reimagining our top-quality beans as a convenient, healthier snacking alternative, we discovered irresistible new flavor combinations for an all-new, delicious and satisfying snack. We can’t wait to hear what you think.

KALA Beans mean sustainable nutrition.

Pulses, the edible seeds of plants in the legume family (primarily beans), have been grown by humans for thousands of years. A key solution to the challenge of sustainably feeding 9 billion people by 2050, pulses are found in an enormous variety of cuisines all over the planet, bringing flavor and nutrition to everything from falafel and daal to chili and baked beans.

With more protein, fiber and nutrients than other major crops, pulses return nitrogen to the soil instead of depleting it like corn, wheat or rice, requiring far less water and hardily resisting both drought and frost. According to Dr. Ken Albala, author of Beans, A History, pulses are "one of the most sustainable, low-energy-input, low-water-input and low-greenhouse-gas-emission sources of protein in the world."
