You’ve most likely heard about black beans, but what exactly are they and are they really that good for you?

Black beans, sometimes referred to as turtle beans, are legumes and are the edible seeds of the plant. They are both high in protein and fibre and have an array of potential health benefits.

The wonder beans can help build and maintain bone structure and strength, and contain quercetin and saponins, which can protect the heart. The high levels of fibre help to lower the total amount of cholesterol in the blood and, therefore can decrease the risk of heart disease. Black beans are naturally low in sodium and contain potassium, calcium, and magnesium, all of which have been found to decrease blood pressure naturally. They can also help with the management of diabetes.

To add to all that, black beans are great for weight loss, thanks to the high levels of dietary fibre, making you feel fuller for longer and lowering calorie intake as a result. Bonus!

Slendier’s Black Bean pastas are organic, gluten free, vegan and have an impressive five health star rating. The products are also lower in carbs and calories than regular wheat pasta as well as an excellent source of fibre and protein and to top it all off they cook in just five minutes.
