The Pinto Bean is a mottled pink and brown beans that turn pink and deliciously creamy when cooked. Pinto beans are marvels of nature's kitchen: filled with beneficial phytonutrients, soluble and insoluble dietary fibre and protein. They're storehouses of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals including iron, zinc, potassium, magnesium and folate. Beans are cholesterol-free and contain no saturated fat. One-half cup serving of pinto beans contains about 8 grams of dietary protein. Enjoy them in soups, chillies, salads, spreads and more.
