Description

Black Beans have shown to provide special support for digestive tract health, and particularly colon health. The indigestible fraction (IF) in black beans is shown to be larger than the IF in lentils and chickpeas. It is the perfect mix of substances for allowing bacteria in the colon to produce butyric acid. Cells lining the inside of the colon can use this butyric acid to fuel their many activities and keep the lower digestive tract functioning properly. Due to their strong fibre-protein combination, Black Beans are beneficial in digestive health, the blood sugar regulatory system, and the cardiovascular system

Ingredients

Organic black beans.

Warnings

Packed in a facility where tree nuts and peanuts are present.

Directions

Before cooking, soak the beans in water for 8 hours, then pressure cook for 18 minutes, or simmer on the stove for 2 hours. 1 cup of dried black beans makes approximately 2 1/2 cups of cooked beans. Include black beans with favorite toppings next time you make a stuffed baked potato, or add to your taco filling in place of refried beans. Add to a soup for an extra nutrient boost. As a fancy party dip: In a serving bowl, layer black beans, guacamole, chopped tomatoes, diced onions and cilantro.
