White beans

Navy beans or haricot beans are particularly popular in the United Kingdom and the United States. Other white beans include cannellini, a popular variety in central and southern Italy, which is related to the kidney bean. White beans are the most abundant plant-based source of phosphatidylserine (PS) known.

Navy bean or haricot bean is a variety of common beans (Phaseolus vulgaris). It is particularly popular in the United Kingdom and the United States (where it may also be called pea bean). It features in such dishes as baked beans and even pies, as well as in various soups such as Senate bean soup. Consumption of baked beans has been shown to lower total cholesterol levels and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol. This might be at least partly explained by high saponin content of navy bean. Saponins also exhibit antibacterial and anti-fungal activity, and have been found to inhibit cancer cell growth. Furthermore, navy bean is the richest source of ferulic acid and p-coumaric acid among the common bean varieties. It is commonly known as the "Navy Bean" due to its use as a staple of United States Navy rations in the 19th century.

Navy bean varieties include:

  • Great Northern
  • Rainy River
  • Robust
  • Michelite
  • Sanilac

Other white beans include cannellini, a popular variety in central and southern Italy, which is related to the kidney bean and, like the kidney bean, has higher levels of the toxic lectin phytohaemagglutinin. White beans are the most abundant plant-based source of phosphatidylserine (PS) yet known.[6]

(The large white beans known in Greece as gígantes (Greek: γίγαντες, giants) and eléfantes (ελέφαντες, elephants) are from the runner bean, Phaseolus coccineus.)

White beans

One-half cup of these fiber-packed beans contains almost 4 grams of fat-blasting Resistant Starch, a healthy carb that boosts metabolism.
