Black turtle beans can regulate digestion, maintain a healthy heart, and are even said to help prevent certain cancers. These delicious beans provide nutrients like calcium, iron, manganese, vitamin A and Folate. Black beans are also an incredible source of quality protein. Protein is a macronutrient made of amino acids that gives strength, provides energy, and supports a healthy metabolism. Most foods that are high in protein are animal products such as meat and eggs, which can be a problem for people who are vegetarian or vegan, as a protein deficiency can lead to complications such as protein energy malnutrition (PEM). Black Beans are packed with protein and can be used as a substitute for meat in most dishes, although it isn’t recommended to use black beans to entirely replace meat. Calcium is an essential nutrient that is important for bone health and is great at stabilizing blood pressure. They also contain a considerable amount of fiber, with about 8-11 grams per serving.
