General Nutrition and Diet Facts



Dried Beans: Nutrient Profile


Dried beans or legumes are an inexpensive and healthy way to include into our diet. A serving (1/3 cup of cooked beans) contains around 80 calories, no cholesterol, lots of complex carbohydrates, and little fat. In addition, beans are a good source of B vitamins, potassium, and fiber, which promotes digestive health and relieves constipation. Eating beans may help prevent colon cancer, and reduce blood cholesterol (a leading cause of heart disease). Beans are often thought of as a side dish.
