    EDEN Organic Dry Black Turtle Beans are organically grown on Michigan family farms by farmers we know and trust. EDEN Beans are pure and nourishing because theyre grown in vital living soil, free of pesticides, herbicides, and chemical fertilizers for decades. EDEN Organic Dry Black Beans are packaged in boxes made from recycled and recyclable paperboard, one of the most environmentally friendly packages available. According to the 100 percent Recycled Paperboard Alliance (RPA100.com), "Fourteen trees are saved for each ton of paperboard converted to 100 percent recycled paperboard. Trees are critical to the sequestration of CO2 (a greenhouse gas) in North America. For each ton of paperboard converted to 100 percent recycled paperboard, an equal amount of recovered fiber has been diverted from municipal landfills. Production of 100 percent recycled paperboard uses 50 percent less energy compared to virgin grades of paperboard, thus significantly reducing the greenhouse gases released into the environment." The black turtle bean Phaseolus vulgaris originated in southern Mexico and Central America over 7,000 years ago according to archeological findings. It is one of more than 500 varieties of beans referred to as the common beans that are related to the kidney bean. They were a staple food in the diets of Central and South Americans and supplied the missing amino acids in the corn based diets of these countries. Today its use has spread throughout the world but is most popular in Latin American countries, the Caribbean Islands, South America, and in the southern and southwestern United States. Other names for this bean are Mexican black, black Spanish, Tampico, Venezuelan beans, caviar criollo, and frijoles. According to the FDA, "Low fat diets rich in fruits and vegetables (foods that are low in fat and may contain dietary fiber, Vitamin A, or Vitamin C) may reduce the risk of some types of cancer, a disease associated with many factors." Also, "Diets low in sodium may reduce the risk of hypertension or high blood pressure, a disease with many factors." EDEN Organic Black Beans are an excellent source of fiber with 64 percent daily value (DV) per serving, low fat, cholesterol free, and very low sodium. They are rich in protein, iron, thiamin B1, magnesium, and manganese, and a good source of folate B9 and zinc. Studies show beans contain a wealth of antioxidants similar to those in fruits and berries. "Beans are really loaded with antioxidant compounds," said Clifford Beninger, Ph.D., an environmental biologist and former researcher for the USDAs Bean Research Unit. "We didnt know how potent they were until now. In general darker colored seed coats were associated with higher levels of flavonoids, and therefore higher antioxidant activity." Researchers tested the antioxidant activity of flavonoids found in 12 common varieties of dry beans. They found one class of compounds in particular, anthocyanins, were the most active antioxidants in beans. These findings add antioxidant activity to a growing list of healthy compounds found in beans and legumes. The study was published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. Beans are an important source of two essential amino acids not found in many cereal grains, lysine and threonine. Whole grains complement beans and together deliver complete protein. Enjoying a variety of beans with whole grain is a solid step toward a healthy life.
