Strike bush bean

Judía Strike Agroponiente

The bean you can enjoy in many ways

If you’ve ever seen a bean that’s green in color, cylindrical in shape and doesn’t contain beans seeds, then you’ve come across the Strike bush bean. It’s shorter than the Emerite bean, it has a mild flavour and a touch of sweetness. At Agroponiente we grow it all year round.

What does this vegetable provide? It has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which, combined with its high fibre and low-calorie content, makes this green bean excellent ally for your health. In addition, these beans can counteract the negative effects of free radicals and slow down cellular ageing.

But there is more: they are rich in vitamins A and C, which together with zinc play key roles in maintaining the integrity and function of the immune system. In addition, the beta-carotenes in green beans help protect our eyes and skin.

It’s also rich in minerals such as iodine, iron, calcium, phosphorus, and potassium. It also contains magnesium, present in the chlorophyll responsible for its green colour. On the other hand, it’s low in sodium and a good source of fibre, B vitamins, folate, and beta-carotene.

Strike Bean is ideal for serving cooked or as a garnish in countless dishes. You can use it to sauté with tomato, grill it, add it to warm salads or stews. Enjoy!

The 4 Nutrients That Will Make You Love Green Beans

  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. Among all its minerals, Iodine should be highlighted. It contributes to the production of thyroid hormones and regulates metabolism.
  4. Another element to highlight is protein. A vegetable protein that can be combined in multiple ways to prepare complete and healthy meals.
