Most commonly known as black beans, they are small, black and shiny. They have an almost mushroom-like flavour, hold their shape well when cooked and absorb flavours well. The surface of the black bean is a super source of beneficial anthocyanin flavonoids. These nutrients give the bean its rich black colour. Beans are cholesterol-free and contain no saturated fat. One-half cup serving of beans contains about 8 grams of dietary protein.
At Grainworks, farming is their passion, family, and foundation. Their commitment to healthy foods and a healthy planet started with their great grandparents’ homestead over a century ago. Today, they grow Certified Organic, Non-GMO grains and legumes on some of Canada’s most fertile farmland.
Grainworks knows great food springs from the good seeds sown in harmony with nature. It all begins with the best seed, carefully tended and harvested. If it can’t be grown here on the prairies, they have searched far and wide for organic farmers and suppliers in other climate and soil zones that share their passion for great food and a healthy earth.
