Butter Bean Products
Also known as "Lima Beans", Butter Beans were originally cultivated in the Andes from where they spread to the rest of the Americas. They were a mainstay in the diets of the Native Americans who used them in a traditional corn and bean stew known as "Succotash". This super healthy bean is a wonderful source of plant protein, with just one serving providing around 30% RDA of this important nutrient, along with fibre, minerals and B vitamins. They are also virtually fat free, making them great to include in a weight loss plan as part of a healthy, balanced diet. Butter Beans make a hearty addition to soups and stews and can be used to make delicious homemade baked beans.
