Wholesale Cannellini Beans
Our wholesale cannellini beans are similar to a long white kidney bean and are grown in Argentina. These are the original alubia cannellini beans that are most sought after in Italian stews and bean dishes.Among all groups of food commonly eaten worldwide, no group has a more health-supportive mix of protein-plus-fiber than legumes. Included here, of course, is the amazing protein-plus-fiber content of white beans. From a single, one-cup serving of white beans you get nearly 15 grams of fiber (well over half of the Daily Value and the same amount consumed by the average U.S. adult in one entire day of eating) and 15 grams of protein (nearly one third of the Daily Value and equivalent to the amount in 2 ounces of a meat like chicken or a fish like salmon). You won't find this outstanding protein-fiber combination in fruit, vegetables, grains, meats, dairy products, nuts and seeds, or seafood. Cannellini beans have the health benefits of cleaning the digestive tract, the blood sugar regulatory system, and the cardiovascular system.Before washing your beans, spread them out on a light colored plate or cooking surface to check for, and remove, small stones, debris or damaged beans. Since our wholesale cannellini beans come direct from the farmers than you want to check the product with your eyes before it is served. After this process, place the beans in a strainer, rinsing them thoroughly under cool running water.To cook beans on your stove-top, combine soaked or dried beans, water, oil or fat, and seasonings in a saucepan or pot of appropriate size. Bring the beans to a boil, reduce the heat, then cover and simmer until beans are tender. This takes 1 to 3 hours, depending on the bean variety. Check the beans occasionally to see if they are covered with the cooking liquid. If there is so much liquid absorption and evaporation that the top of the beans becomes exposed, add very hot tap water to the pot to cover the beans. When dried beans boil, a foam forms on the top of the cooking liquid. This foam is water-soluble protein released from the beans and it will be absorbed back into the bean cooking liquid. It is not necessary to remove the foam. To keep the foam down when cooking beans, add 1 Tablespoon of butter, drippings, or vegetable salad oil, for each cup of beans.
