Nutrition

  • Beans and legumes are a low-fat source of protein and are an excellent source of fibre. One cup of white kidney beans provides almost half the fibre most adults need in a day.
  • Beans also contain resistant starch, a type of carbohydrate that promotes healthy bacteria in the colon and may help keep colon cells healthy. Research suggests that resistant starch may lower blood sugar after eating, minimize hunger and reduce fat storage.
  • Eating a diet rich in beans and legumes can help to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight and is associated with a lower risk of colorectal cancer and heart disease.
