Accra Market Black Beans

US $3.99


This product is a subspecies of the cowpea, grown around the world for its medium-sized edible bean. Black-eyed beans have a smooth texture, pea-like flavor and are good when mixed with other vegetables.

Like most beans, black-eyed beans are rich in the best sort of fiber - soluble fiber - which helps to eliminate cholesterol from the body. They are a good source of folate, potassium, copper, phosphorous and manganese. As a high-potassium, low-sodium food they help reduce blood pressure. Not only are they low in fat, when combined with grains, beans but supply high quality protein that provides a healthy alternative to meat or other animal protein. It also contains protease inhibitors that frustrate the development of cancerous cells.
