Health Benefits of Eating Black Turtle Beans


Black turtle beans, commonly known as black beans, are a variety of the common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris). Like all common beans, black beans are loaded with protein, fiber, molybdenum, zinc, and copper. But the health benefits of black turtle beans go way beyond the call of duty as these little black gems offer extraordinary antioxidant benefits resulting from their high concentration of anthocyanins. Anthocyanins are flavonoid pigments that give many black and blue fruits, berries and legumes their extraordinary health benefits.

Note: Like all common beans, raw black turtle beans contain toxic lectins and therefore you should always cook them properly before eating them.


Black Beans Top the List of Antioxidant-Rich Beans

A study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry in 2003 investigated the antioxidant activity of 12 common varieties of dry beans. Black beans came out on top, having more antioxidant activity, gram for gram, than the other beans.
