Black beans: properties and benefits

Black beans provide important benefits and nutritional properties, thus becoming delicious legumes that are characterized by having an oval appearance and a characteristic glossy black color.

Although it is usually much more common than you think, it is common to confuse green beans with those called black beans, which differ from the first not only because they have a characteristic black appearance (unlike the previous ones, which are yellowish-white), but because they provide a series of different properties.

In fact, black beans come from South America, although today we can find them practically all over the world: from the United States to Europe, through Asia and even Africa.

As usual, legumes tend to be well known for causing those annoying gas and flatulence.  However, if you prepare them raw, it is best to soak the dried beans before cooking, which will help reduce their sugars.

If you buy them in the supermarket already cooked and packaged, the best option is to wash them well with water and salt before consumption.

They are also rich in antioxidant compounds called anthocyanins, flavonoids capable not only of preventing blood clots, but also cancer.

It also stands out for its high content of folate, as well as minerals (especially potassium, magnesium and calcium) and vitamins (especially vitamin B1).
