Navy Beans, Haricot Beans
Navy beans (Haricot Beans) are an excellent source of cholesterol-lowering fibre, as are most other beans. In addition to lowering cholesterol, navy beans' high fibre content prevents blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal, making these beans an especially good choice for individuals with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycaemia. When combined with whole grains such as brown rice, navy beans provide virtually fat-free high quality protein. But this is far from all navy beans have to offer. Navy beans are a very good source of folate and manganese and a good source of protein and vitamin B1 as well as the minerals phosphorus, copper, magnesium and iron.
They help to lower your risk of heart attack, burns energy whilst lowering your blood sugar, high in iron, maintains your memory with Thiamine (Vitamin B1) and is a protein power house.
