Good for our arteries
This is the Emerite green bean: the round pole bean par excellence. Its pods are long and slim, cylindrical and green. It doesn’t have grains or strings, so they are perfect for preparing any meal we want to cook. And it’s suitable for all ages!
This vegetable has a high fibre content that helps regulate our intestinal transit, fights constipation and helps keep us satiated. In addition, thanks to its high vitamin K content, it keeps our bones strong and healthy.
But it has many more vitamins. The Emerite green bean has around 20% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C; thus it’s an excellent antioxidant. Emerite gran beans are also high potassium and magnesium foods, which means they help reduce hypertension. So the Emerite green bean becomes a great ally for our arteries.
