Cranberry Beans (Borlotti Beans)

The Cranberry Beans is a variety of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) first bred in Colombia as the cargamanto.[1] It is also known as the Borlotti Bean or Roman bean The bean is a medium to large tan or hazelnut-colored bean splashed or streaked with red, magenta, or black.

Each cup of boiled cranberry beans provides 241 calories, 0.8 grams of fat, 16.5 grams of protein, and 43.3 grams of carbohydrates. Cranberry beans don't contain any cholesterol and only have trace amounts of sodium, making them a heart-healthy protein choice.

While cranberry beans only contain relatively small amounts of most vitamins, they do provide 92 percent of the DV for folate and 25 percent of the DV for thiamine per cup. Folate is essential for forming DNA and preventing certain types of birth defects, and you need thiamine for turning the food you eat into energy and proper brain function.

When you eat a cup of cranberry beans, you'll increase your intake of essential minerals. This serving provides 13 percent of the DV for zinc and more than 20 percent of the DV for manganese, copper, potassium, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus.

My girlfriend Carol talked about these CranBerry Beans about 2 or 3 years ago.I never even heard of a Crannberry Bean. I still haven't cook any, However her daughter called me today almost scarred me out of my mind thinking something had gone wrong with my friend when all she wanted was an opinion about a Walmart brand of cranberry beans compared to A NY Spice Company Bean..I replied Lisa I'm Ordering them right away from NY Spice Co..She's Happy With Your Products. I wish there was a gifted box or gift basket you could put together for me with a few added items on my list for her..Please consider gift basket ideals for special occasions and Holidays...Thank You..
