Description

Organic Cannellini Beans – the haricot bean’s big brother.

Organic Cannellini beans are similar to Organic Haricot Beans which form the main ingredient of ‘baked beans’.  These longer beans are sometimes called white kidney beans.

Cannellini beans go really well in bean stews and cold salads but are versatile in a range of recipes and make a great blended dip.

One 70g serving of these tasty beans is high in Protein, Fibre, Thiamin (B1), Folate, Potassium, Manganese, Phosphorus, Iron, Copper and a source of Pyridoxine (B6), Vitamin K, Magnesium and Zinc

They are similar in size and shape to a kidney bean and are directly related – let’s call them cousins!  Cannellini beans are popular in South and Central Italy but were originally cultivated in Argentina.

Origin: China

Allergen Information: Packed on premises that handle gluten, tree nuts, sesame, soya, peanuts.
