Eden Foods Black Beans

Eden Foods Black Beans

Dietary Needs:


We really love the entire process Eden uses for their canned beans and think they are the best brand available for canned beans. Their Black Turtle beans come from a small family farm. They are soaked overnight and expertly cooked at Eden's certified organic and circle k kosher cannery. What tips us happily over the edge is that they use kombu when cooking their beans. Kombu is a sea vegetable that is loaded with essential trace minerals. It helps to make the bean more digestible. Black beans are a super versatile bean that are a staple in many cuisines around the world and a Whole Journey favorite to recommend as a high quality complex carbohydrate. Carotenoids, antioxidant containing plant color pigments, give these beans their deep black color. Rich in dietary fiber and a good source of protein, iron, and magnesium. Fat free and very low sodium with no salt added. Packed in bisphenol-A free cans, which is a huge plus. Make sure to rinse your beans thoroughly before using them.

Eden Aduki Beans

Eden Aduki Beans

Dietary Needs:


We really love the entire process Eden uses for their canned beans, and we think they are the best brand available for canned beans. Aduki beans are our favorite bean for health. They are the easiest bean to digest and the least gas-forming for those who don't usually tolerate beans well. Aduki beans are tonifying to the kidneys and the adrenal glands. They taste sweeter than any other bean and are traditionally used in Japanese desserts. Eden originally got their aduki bean seeds straight from Japan and continue to grow and harvest them using the highest quality organic soil. They are soaked overnight and expertly cooked at Eden's certified organic and circle k kosher cannery. What tips us happily over the edge is that they use kombu when cooking their beans. Kombu is a sea vegetable that is loaded with essential trace minerals. It helps to make the bean more digestible. They are packed in bisphenol-A free cans, which is a huge plus, and a necessity to protect the quality of canned foods. Make sure to rinse your beans thoroughly before using them.
