The hard-to-find nutritional treasure
We are one of the few companies that specialise in this type of vegetables. These beans are flat in shape and recognisable in greengrocers by their curved shape. Their skin is thin and tender. Their size is irregular.
It’s not that common to find this vegetable in the supermarket since it is usually used for preserves. But few know that this vegetable is highly recommended to people with gout, arthritis or kidney stones, as well as pregnant women. This is because this bean contributes to the adequate development of the fetus. It’s good in all these cases because this vegetable is rich in folic acid, an essential B-group vitamin that plays a vital role in maintaining good health and well-being.
In addition, the Rastra bean also has a high iron and phosphorus content. Therefore, it’s recommended to people with or showing first signs of anaemia. It also has anti-cancer properties, reduces cholesterol, and boosts the immune system and intestinal transit since it’s very digestive and contributes to eliminating fluids. Yay bean!

The 4 Nutrients That Will Make You Love Green Beans
- Rich in folate. Folate is one of the B-vitamins that is essential to our body. They help reduce tiredness and prevent fatigue and contribute to normal psychological function. In addition, it’s a perfect vegetable for pregnant women since it promotes the growth of maternal tissues and, therefore, the correct development of the fetus.
- Vitamin C, of course. An essential nutrient to keep our bones, cartilage, gums, teeth and skin healthy. And, if that weren’t enough benefits, it also promotes the proper functioning of the nervous system, the immune system, and reduces tiredness and prevents fatigue. Are you already thinking up recipes with green beans, or do you still need convincing?
- Among all its minerals, Iodine should be highlighted. It contributes to the production of thyroid hormones and regulates metabolism.
- Another element to highlight is protein. A vegetable protein that can be combined in multiple ways to prepare complete and healthy meals.
