What Are Organic Black Turtle Beans?
Black beans, also known as turtle beans because of their hard shell-like appearance, are classified as legumes. The beans are actually the edible seeds of the legume plant.
The strong antioxidant properties of black turtle beans are largely attributable to their high concentration of anthocyanins such as delphinidin, petunidin, and malvidin. The overall anthocyanin content of black beans is estimated to be around 214 milligrams per 100 grams! Lets have a look at how adding these to your diet will benefit you...
Why Should I Get Organic Black Turtle Beans?
Black Beans are a tremendous source of Anthocyanins. Anthocyanins are healthful flavonoid pigments that give foods like blueberries, blackcurrants, raspberries and red grapes their intense colour and superior antioxidant properties. Like other legumes such as peanuts, peas and lentils, black beans are also prized for their high protein, fibre and mineral content.
Additionally Black Beans have a low glycaemic index (30), meaning they're slowly absorbed into your blood stream, helping to prevent blood sugar spikes that things like white rice and white bread can cause. This slow absorption also means that these beans will keep you fuller for longer, making them a noteworthy tool for controlling your weight.
