Beans are rich in protein, complex carbohydrates, folate and iron. Beans also have a good amount of fibre. One cup of cooked beans provides anywhere between 9-13 g of fibre.
Fibre can help to keep us in shape, maintain our blood sugar levels, have a healthy bowel movement and keeping our cholesterol in check.
