Bean Food Protein Levels

Mixed Beans
Mixed Beans

Here is a quick reference for when you’re choosing which beans to put on your family’s plate.  This is a quick list of some the more common types of beans have protein levels. It seems like a small thing, but if you’re choosing to grow them in your home garden and/or you’re planning to purchase beans to feed your family, then having an informed choice could make a lot of difference in the protein levels of your meals. This also could be helpful, if you’re one of those folks who is following the vegetarian meal pattern as not all beans are equal in their protein levels. I hope you find this helpful.
