Benefits of Beans
How to select
While selecting haricot beans in the market, avoid beans which are discolored, as they may have been poorly handled while they dried. When you are ready to use the beans, first rinse them and pick through the rinsed beans to remove small stones and organic material which may have been packaged with them. Unlike canned vegetables, which have lost much of their nutritional value, there is little difference in the nutritional value of canned haricot beans and those you cook yourself.
