KIDNEY BEANS HEALTH BENEFITS HIGHLIGHTS

♥ Lowering cholesterol

♥ Excellent for diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia

♥ A good source for high-quality protein, especially when combined with rice/ quinoa/ buckwheat.

♥ Lower risks of heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and type 2 diabetes 

♥ Excellent source of the trace mineral, molybdenum.


Kidney beans are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fibre, as are most other beans.

In addition to lowering cholesterol, kidney beans’ high fibre content prevents blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal, making these beans an especially good choice for individuals with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia.

When combined with whole grains such as rice, kidney beans provide virtually fat-free high-quality protein.

Kidney beans are an excellent source of the trace mineral, molybdenum, an integral component of the enzyme sulfite oxidase, which is responsible for detoxifying sulfites. 1

Much evidence supports the health benefits of consuming a plant-based diet and increasing the intake of legumes.

A high intake of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes (beans), nuts, and seeds is linked to significantly lower risks of heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. 2
