Dark red kidney beans are incredibly nutritious beans that are beneficial to many aspects of your health. Like many other types of beans, dark red kidney beans are high in protein and are regarded as one of the best options for protein in a plant-based diet. They are also rich in fiber, which makes them good for digestion. It is important to remember to rinse your beans before cooking them, as that reduces the amount of phytic acid, which keeps the nutrients from being absorbed into the body and can disrupt digestion.

These beans are packed full of essential nutrients that are important to incorporate into your diet. These nutrients include iron, manganese, potassium, folate, and vitamin K1. Their high levels of iron and manganese make these beans very heart-healthy, as these minerals help prevent heart disease. Kidney beans help regulate blood sugar levels, as they are rich in protein and healthy carbs. Another reason they are good for regulating blood sugar is that they place low on the glycemic index. Dark red kidney beans have also been observed to be helpful with weight loss.
