    BEANS DESCRIPTION

    THE COMMON BEAN

    Beans (Phaseolus vulgaris) are also known as Phaseolamin, common bean, green bean, snap bean, string bean, kidney bean, navy bean, wax bean, and pinto bean.

    The Kidney Bean is an annual, twining plant; the leaves are alternate, each leaf being of 3 broad ovate to rhombic ovate, and all pointed leaflets, with white, yellow, or purplish flowers, green or yellow pods, and seeds or Beans. Even though the family of beans is diverse, they are all varieties of the Kidney Bean. The dry beans are picked when mature, the others at various stages of maturity. Beans are indigenous to the Americas and were unknown to the rest of the world until the time of Columbus. All varieties of beans were used as trade goods by native American tribes and each tribe had its own names and folklore for the different beans. Ancient Chinese herbalists used bean curd (tofu) in a soup to treat colds; the Chinese version of Chicken Soup. Beans are an excellent source of protein.

    Beans are part of the legume family which also include lentils, peas, soy, and peanuts. While beans may be the butt of many flatulent jokes they have some incredible health benefits and should be included in one's diet if you are looking to lose weight and feel great.

    BEAN NUTRITION - A MEAT ALTERNATIVE

    Beans are a great source of protein and are a wonderful alternative to meat in your diet. This is because they are much lower in fat and contain a generous amount of dietary fiber unlike meat. For example, a 100 gram (about 1/2 cup) serving of black beans contains only 3.8-percent of its total calories from fat and has 9 grams of protein and 9 grams of fiber. The same serving size of cooked chicken breast contains 22.5-percent of its total calories from fat, has no fiber, and provides 33 grams of protein. A big reason for the epidemic of chronic diseases seen in westernized countries is due to the higher fat content of their respective diets. In countries where little to no animal proteins are consumed there is a very low incidence of the chronic diseases such as heart disease, obesity, cancer, and diabetes. That is because those cultures eat a plant-based diet and their total fat intake is less than 20-percent of their average calories and in many cases more like 10 to 15-percent. In America, where chronic illnesses run rampant, the typical fat intake is anywhere from 20 to 35-percent of total calories. So when you include more beans in your diet, instead of various meats (beef, chicken, turkey, fish), it is much easier to achieve a lower overall intake of fat and avoid the debilitating illnesses that most people develop in affluent cultures.

    Beans are also an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. Compared to non-consumers of beans those who included beans in their diet had higher intakes of potassium, magnesium, iron, copper, and folate. It is also interesting to note that if you sprout certain beans, such as soybeans and mung beans, there is an increase in their vitamin C, niacin, and riboflavin content.

    Along with being a good source of vitamins and minerals beans are also full of those much sought after antioxidants. What you will usually find is that the darker the bean the more antioxidants it contains. This is because beans contain antioxidants called anthocyanins. Anthocyanins are responsible for the dark red or black color found in the different types of beans. Beans also contain another group of antioxidants called polyphenols which include various flavonoids and isoflavones which help fight heart disease and cancer.

    DRY BEANS - A DIETARY STAPLE

    Throughout history, dry beans have been used as a staple of the diet, and the health benefits derived from them have been well recognized. Documentation of their use goes back far into the past, long before biblical times. Evidence of dry bean use in Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Africa, the Americas, India and China is available from archeological evidence.

    Most Americans are not eating enough beans, although people in the southern and western regions of the United States consume more than those in the Midwest and Northeast, even though half of the beans grown in the country are from North Dakota and Michigan. Americans consume, on average, about 6.5 pounds of dry beans yearly which is equal to 56 grams per week or a little more than 1/4 of the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans' recommendation of 3 cups of beans per week (dry weight ~200 grams).

    Dry beans are nutrient-dense in that the amount of nutrients provided per calorie is particularly high. Increased intake will provide nutritional benefits to the diet, and may help to reduce disease risk and enhance longevity. In a recent multicultural study, the consumption of beans was shown to be the only dietary component related to longevity. In a study called the "Food Habits in Later Life Study," investigators found that for every 20-gram intake of legumes (including dry beans), the risk ratio of death was reduced by 6-percent in the older people (aged 70 and older) studied.

    DRY BEANS ARE NUTRITIONALLY RICH

    Although dry beans vary considerably in flavor, size, color, and shape, their nutritional composition is remarkably similar (See Nutrient Table). They are packed with protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, and are low in fat. One half cup of cooked dry beans contains approximately 115 calories and provides 8 grams of protein. In addition to macronutrients, vitamins and minerals, dry beans contain several types of phytochemicals. They are rich in lignans, which may play a role in preventing osteoporosis, heart disease, and certain cancers. The flavonoids in beans may help reduce heart disease and cancer risk. The plant stanol esters, or phytosterols, contained in dry beans may help reduce blood cholesterol levels.

    DRY BEANS PROVIDE COMPLEX CARBOHYDRATES

    Sixty to sixty-five percent of the calories in dry beans are from carbohydrates, predominantly in the form of starch, resistant starch, and small amounts of non-starch polysaccharides. Dry beans have a low glycemic index, with values varying from 27 to 42-percent relative to glucose and 40 to 59-percent relative to white bread. The reduced glycemic index of dry beans helps reduce the glycemic load of the diet when served in a mixed meal. The properties of the carbohydrates found in dry beans, along with their fiber content, make them ideal foods for the management of abnormalities associated with insulin resistance, diabetes and hyperlipidemia.

    Beans contain some complex sugars of the raffinose family. These are the sugars that cause digestive issues with bean consumption. These sugars must be broken down by enzymes that are not available in the human digestive system and are therefore available for microbial action in the colon, resulting in gas production and flatulence. These sugars can be removed effectively from the beans by soaking the beans, and then cooking them, discarding the soaking and cooking liquids.

    DRY BEANS PROVIDE BENEFICIAL DIETARY FIBER

    Dry beans are rich in both soluble and insoluble fibers, so they provide the nutritional benefits of both fiber classes. The soluble fiber in beans dissolves in water, trapping bile which helps to lower blood levels of LDL cholesterol, especially if LDL cholesterol levels were high to begin with, without compromising the level of protective HDL cholesterol. Dry beans also provide substantial amounts of insoluble fiber, which help attract water to the stool and enhance transit time of waste through the colon. This may help to combat constipation, colon cancer, and other conditions that afflict the digestive tract.

    DRY BEANS ARE A MAJOR SOURCE OF DIETARY PROTEIN

    Dry beans are very good source of low fat protein. They contain between 21 to 25-percent protein by weight, which is much higher than other vegetable products. In many parts of the world, they provide a substantial proportion of the total protein intake for the population. The intake of dried beans as a protein source is extremely important worldwide as they provide a good source of protein at minimal cost relative to the production of animal protein sources.

    DRY BEANS ARE LOW IN FAT

    The fat content of dry beans is very low (less than 2-percent of total content), and they contain predominately unsaturated fatty acids. There is some variation based on variety and growth conditions, but most beans contain about 85-percent of their fat as unsaturated fatty acids. Because dry beans are plant foods, they are cholesterol-free.

    DRY BEANS ARE PLENTIFUL IN VITAMINS & MINERALS

    As for vitamins and minerals, beans are an excellent source of copper, phosphorus, manganese and magnesium - nutrients that many Americans do not get enough of. Most dry beans are a rich source of iron, which makes them ideal for vegans who do not get an animal source of iron. The nutritional content of most dry beans is very similar, with the exception of iron content. White beans have almost twice the iron of black beans, while kidney beans are somewhere in between. Dry beans are an excellent source of the water-soluble vitamins thiamin and folic acid and a good source of riboflavin and vitamin B-6.

    DRY BEANS - SUMMARY

    Nutrient dense dry beans are an important addition to the diet. They are low in fat, high in fiber and packed with protein. Dry beans provide a rich source of vitamins and minerals as well as plant phytochemicals. Including 3 cups of cooked dry beans in the diet on a weekly basis will meet the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans. In addition, they will enhance health-promoting aspects of the diet and be important in reducing risk for chronic diseases such as obesity, cancer, diabetes and heart disease.

    BEANS USES, HEALTH BENEFITS & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    MEDICINAL USES

    Bean pods are known to lower blood sugar levels and have been used in mild cases of diabetes. In this case, the pods are most potent before the Beans are ripe, and fresh pods are more effective than dried; however, the dried pods work well in conjunction with Bilberry, Yarrow, Dandelion, and Juniper in treating various conditions. When mixed as a tea, it can be used for dropsy, sciatica, chronic rheumatism, kidney and bladder problems, uric acid accumulations, and it helps replace the albumin in the urine during pregnancy. The seed is diuretic, hypoglycemic and hypotensive. The seed is also been used for cancer in the blood. When bruised and boiled with Garlic they have cured intractable coughs. Externally, Beans are used to treat skin ulcers, and sores. Using the Beans topically over an extended period can be effective in treating serious cases of acne. Meal made from the Bean can be used for moist eczema, skin eruptions, and itching. A homeopatic remedy is made from the entire fresh herb. It is used in the treatment of rheumatism and arthritis, plus disorders of the urinary tract.

    NUTRITION & HEALTH BENEFITS OF BEANS

    Beans have been referred to by some as the "poor man's meat" which may lead people to believe that they are an inferior food and have little nutritional value. However, nothing could be further from the truth because beans are naturally low in fat, high in fiber, have no cholesterol, and contain an array of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are essential to vibrant health. They are also an excellent source of complex carbohydrates and protein which, as you know, are important factors in keeping your body functioning at optimum levels on a daily basis. By including beans in your daily diet you can experience the following health benefits:
    • Lower cholesterol levels.
    • Improved blood glucose control and reduction in the incidence of diabetes.
    • Lower blood pressure.
    • Reduced risk of metabolic syndrome.
    • Reduced risk of cancer (stomach, colorectal, kidney, breast).
    • Lower risk of cardiovascular disease.
    • Prevention of constipation.
    • Increased satiety and delayed return of hunger.

    Beans have also been found to do wonders for those wanting to lose weight and keep it off. In a study looking at 8,229 adults published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition there was a 22-percent reduction in the risk of obesity and a 23-percent reduced risk of increased waist sizes in individuals who consumed beans as a regular part of the diet.

    bean sprouts


    SPROUTING BEANS

    You can also sprout your beans if you want them raw. You read earlier how sprouting beans can increase some of their vitamin and mineral content which is always a good thing.


    GROW FRESH BEAN SPROUTS AT HOME

    When you know how to sprout beans you know how to create a significant nutrient source cheaply, quickly and easily. Increase your vitamin and mineral intake, boost up your protein and charge your immune system. Here is how to grow bean sprouts and join the ranks of the home vegetable gardeners with a contribution of only 5 minutes a day.

    Within a week, for a few dollars, you could be joining the ranks of those who grow their own food at home. You could be growing your own major protein source and only have to give up jar space on a kitchen bench to do it. Sprouts vary in tastes and textures. You can experiment with types and recipes whilst significantly improving your diet.

    BUYING SPROUTING BEANS

    Most health food shops sell sprout mixes which are ideal for beginners learning how to sprout beans. Usually these mixes are targeted towards salads or stir-fries. Mountain Rose Herbs has a fine selection of organic sprouting beans and seeds.

    It may be cheaper to buy beans separately and in larger amounts from bulk bins in health food shops, co-op stores or from internet suppliers. Shopping online usually enables you to select from a greater variety of sprouting beans like those pictured below. Each has it's own unique texture, flavor and nutritional profile.

    HOW TO SPROUT BEANS

    1. Get a large, clean glass jar.
    2. Place half a cup of beans in the jar (1 cup if you are sprouting sunflower seeds.)
    3. Make a lid for your jar from a stocking, mesh or a tea towel, and secure it with an elastic band.
    4. Cover the beans with water and soak. For soak times see the instructions for specific beans below.
    5. Rinse and drain them well.
    6. Leave your sprout jar on a bench top out of direct sunlight, upside down at an angle so that the water completely drains.
    7. Following their initial soak, rinse and drain your sprouts regularly. The number of rinses necessary per day for different bean types is outlined below.

    Try sprouting mung beans to start with because they are crunchy and fresh-tasting, and if you harvest them while their tails are short (1 to 2-cm) they are even sweet.

    Sprouting Bags are another easy option for beginner sprouters. They are cheap and easy to use. Made from chemical-free, untreated hemp they are naturally resistant to mould and mildew so they can be re-used for years. Just place your sprouting beans in the bag, dip in water and hang.

    There are several different types of sprouters that you can use for sprouting. The jar method is a cheap and easy place to start when you are experimenting. Once you want to increase the volume of sprouts you produce tray sprouters and automatic sprouters become more useful. See Sprouting Products.

    SPROUTING TIMES

  • Mung Sprouts: Soak for 8 to 12 hours and rinse 2 to 3 times a day. Harvest after 3 to 5 days at 1 to 5-cm length (shorter ones are sweeter.) Eat raw or cooked in salads, sandwiches, stir-fries, smoothies or as a snack.

  • Alfalfa Sprouts: Soak for 4 to 6 hours and rinse 2 to 3 times a day. Harvest after 5 to 6 days at about 4-cm length. Eat raw in salads and sandwiches or as garnish.

  • Sunflower Sprouts: Soak hulled seeds for 8 hours and rinse 2 to 3 times a day. Harvest after 1 to 3 days at about 1/2 to 2-cm length. Eat raw or cooked in salads, stir-fries or dips.

  • Adzuki Sprouts: Soak for 10 to 12 hours and rinse 3 to 4 times a day. Harvest after 3 to 6 days at about 2 to 4-cm length. Eat raw or cooked in salads, sandwiches, stir-fries or dips.

  • Fenugreek Sprouts: Soak for 8 to 10 hours and rinse 3 to 4 times a day. Harvest after 2 to 5 days at about 1 to 4-cm. Eat raw in salads, sandwiches or as garnish.

  • Sesame Sprouts: Soak for 5 to 6 hours and rinse 3 to 4 times a day. Harvest after 1 to 3 days at 1 to 2-mm. Eat raw in salads, stir-fries, dips, smoothies and dehydrated crackers.

  • TIPS FOR PREPARING & COOKING BEANS

    There are a number of different ways to enjoy your favorite beans and it is a good idea to be familiar with the different ways to prepare them. If you are running short on time then you can always grab the canned beans but beware because many manufacturers load them up with a large amount of salt making the sodium content quite high. It is a good idea to buy the low or no salt canned beans to avoid excess sodium.

    If you like the idea of getting the most bang for your buck then dry beans are your best bet. You can sprout them as mentioned above or cook them. If you cook them then you will need to first rinse them off and then make sure you soak them so that they are rehydrated for more even cooking. There are a couple of different ways to soak them.
      1) Slow Soak: Put desired amount of beans in a stockpot with enough water to cover them and soak for 6 to 8 hours or overnight if you prefer. Make sure you cover and refrigerate them.

      2) Hot Soak: Bring sufficient amount of water (enough to cover the desired quantity of beans) to a boil. Add beans and return to a boil. Remove from heat, cover, and set aside at room temperature for 2 to 3 hours.

      3) Gas Free Soak: Bring sufficient amount of water (enough to cover desired quantity of beans) to a boil. Add beans and boil for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat, cover, and set aside overnight. This is a great way to reduce flatulence that many people experience from beans because the indigestible sugars that cause gas dissolve into the soaking water as it soaks overnight. Note: Crock pot cooking does not get hot enough to remove gas-producing toxins. Use stove top method of bringing to a boil.

    Once the soaking process is over then drain and rinse your beans. Put them in a stockpot and cover them with fresh water. Bring them to a boil and then lower heat to simmer. Add any herbs or spices that you prefer. Cook the beans for 45 to 90 minutes depending on what type of bean you have. Stir occasionally. When beans are soft and you can mash them with a fork they are ready to eat. You can also use a pressure cooker if you prefer faster cooking times. If you use a pressure cooker it typically only takes 5 to 15 minutes of cook time instead.

    People often assume sprouts are best grown in jars, but the lack of circulation and the "bogging" which occurs at the bottom can spoil most sprouts within 1 to 2 days. While there are many other types of sprouters available with different features, the sprout bag is a perfect substitution for the jar with several advantages. Just place the desired quantity of seed into the bag, dip in water, and let sprout! Made of 100% raw hemp, these sprouting bags are machine washable and will last for years.
