Details

Eden Black Turtle Beans Phaseolus vulgaris are organically grown on USA family farms committed to a clean environment and the most nutritious, life encouraging food. Because of the vital, rich soil that produced them they have a much higher mineral content, stronger skins, and their vibrant color holds fast when cooked.

According to the FDA, "Low fat diets rich in fruits and vegetables (foods that are low in fat and may contain dietary fiber, Vitamin A, or Vitamin C) may reduce the risk of some types of cancer, a disease associated with many factors," and "Diets low in sodium may reduce the risk of hypertension or high blood pressure, a disease with many factors." Eden Organic Black Turtle Beans are rich in protein, fiber, iron, thiamin B1, and magnesium, and a good source of phosphorus and zinc. They are low fat and naturally low in sodium.

Studies show beans contain antioxidants similar to those in fruits and berries. "Beans are really loaded with antioxidant compounds," said Clifford Beninger, Ph.D., an environmental biologist and former researcher for the USDA's Bean Research Unit. "We didn't know how potent they were until now. In general darker colored seed coats were associated with higher levels of flavonoids, and therefore higher antioxidant activity." Researchers tested the antioxidant activity of flavonoids found in 12 common varieties of dry beans. They found one class of compounds in particular, anthocyanins, were the most active antioxidants in beans. These findings add antioxidant activity to a growing list of healthy compounds found in beans and legumes. The study was published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.

Beans are an important source of two essential amino acids not found in many cereal grains, lysine and threonine. Whole grains complement beans and together deliver complete protein. Enjoying a variety of beans in combination with whole grain is a good step toward healthy living.

Enjoy Eden Organic Black Turtle Beans cooked with organic grains, in soups, salads, salsa, dips and in making refried beans for tacos and burritos. An essential to Mexican and Central and South American cuisine.
