➡️ What is bean salad? 🔎

Did You Know? Health Benefits

Bean salad is a common cold salad composed of various cooked beans – green beans, yellow wax beans, chickpeas, kidney beans – and typically fresh raw onions, peppers, and/or other vegetables, tossed in a vinaigrette or vinegar[1] and characteristically sweetened with sugar.[2] It can also be prepared as a pickled dish.[3] Bean salad is a popular choice for home canning.[4] Salads prepared with this method should be used within a year for best quality.[5]

Cultures around the world have their own version of bean salad.[6] Balela is a Middle Eastern salad that typically uses chickpeas and black beans with tomatoes, herbs, and lemon juice.[7] South American bean salad features poroto beans with tomatoes, parsley, oil and vinegar, and is served with grilled steak.[8]

It is common in some parts of the United States to refer to this sort of salad by the number of different beans it contains, e.g. “three bean salad” or “four bean salad.”[9] The generic term “bean salad” can also be used to refer to related dishes, like variants containing starches such as barley, pasta, or rice.[10]

➡️ Health benefits of red kidney beans ⚕️

Did You Know? Health Benefits

Nutritionists often recommend beans as part of a healthy diet because of their high nutritional value. Like other beans, kidney beans can be counted as both a protein source or a vegetable.

Eating at least a half-cup of beans per day can improve overall health. According to one study, people who eat beans daily consume less fat and saturated fat while taking in more fiber, protein, folate, iron, and other important minerals.

Improve Heart Health

Beans may have a positive impact on health when eaten as a replacement for meat or other protein sources that are high in cholesterol. Reducing cholesterol is one way to lower your risk of heart disease and improve your heart health. Kidney beans are one of the healthiest types of beans to use as a protein source, with slightly less fat and saturated fat than other varieties of bean but with comparable amounts of fiber and protein. 

Prevent Colon Cancer

Research shows that colon cancer may develop less often in people who regularly eat common beans, such as kidney beans. The non-digestible fiber in common beans plays a positive role in regulating cell growth in the colon, which may help reduce the risk of developing colon cancer. Further study is needed to discover exactly how this mechanism works.

Control Blood Sugar

Beans are a low-glycemic index food, so they don’t cause spikes in blood sugar when you eat them. They can also help moderate the effects of foods that do cause spikes in blood sugar. For example, kidney beans or other common beans can be eaten with rice to slow the rate at which the rice digests.

Weight Management 

Many people struggle with dieting, especially when adopting a low-carbohydrate diet. Eating a diet high in fiber may offer an alternative way to lose weight. Because fiber is filling, it can help people feel fuller longer and avoid overeating. Studies have shown that eating beans as part of a high fiber diet may help people who are trying to lose weight.
