'How Healthy Are Beans?
Around the world there are about 400 varieties of edible dry beans grown and harvested. Most of them are eaten in the fresh form, cooked or steamed. Various coloured bean dry seeds are used in soups and added to rice in Mexican dishes. In Sri Lanka the green and the white beans are popular for curries. The white variety referred to as ‘butter beans’ are more expensive for some reason or other, when the nutrition values are about the same.
