Strike Green Bean
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!
