Beans are a potent superfood, providing high protein, complex carbs, small amounts of healthy fat, B vitamins including folate, minerals like zinc, potassium, and magnesium, and essential fiber, along with important antioxidants and phytonutrients. Beans’ soluble fiber results in longer appetite satisfaction while they supply steady energy from complex carbs.
Beans are a perfect complement to whole grain which results in complete protein and well-rounded basic nourishment.
Eden beans are authentically organic and American grown. They are purchased directly from farmers we know and trust. This salt-of-the-earth grower network began using organic methods decades ago. Practiced tending and vital soils teeming with life grow superbly delicious beans.
Most Eden Beans, like black soybeans, are grown within a few hundred miles of our Midwestern headquarters.
U.S. organic family Eden Black Soybeans are soaked overnight, and pressure cooked with no chemical additives at Eden Foods’ organic, kosher cannery. Native to Asia, black soybeans are a much better and more delicious edible soybean. They are known as the “Crown Prince” of beans in Japan. Their Japanese name means “hardworking” and stands for “bodily strength and health.” Black soybeans are sweet, creamy, smooth, and extremely versatile. They offer all the nourishment of yellow soybeans plus more, including the naturally occurring isoflavone nutrients genistein, daidzein, and glycitein at 40mg per serving. Use them in place of garbanzo beans in hummus, in salads, salsas, soups, stews, and as sides.
