Nutrition and Benefits of Red Beans
Hi Friends of SlimGourmet! Of course you are already familiar with red beans because they are easily found every day. You can cook red beans as a mixture of vegetables, soup, or as a delicious dessert. However, some people also do not know that not only delicious, red beans also have high nutritional content and have health benefits.
Red beans are a source of carbohydrates and fiber, but are also rich in protein. In 100 grams of boiled red beans contain 127 calories, 22.8 g carbohydrates, 6.4 g fiber, and 8.7 g protein. Carbohydrates in red beans are complex carbohydrates that take a long time to digest the body, and have a low glycemic index (GI) that is good for people with diabetes. In addition, the high content of red bean fiber can prevent the risk of digestive tract diseases. High red bean protein content can be a good source of protein for the body, and it is usually used as an alternative if you cannot consume protein from animals (vegetarians). In addition, red beans also contain bioactive components, such as isoflavones which can prevent the risk of cancer and other degenerative diseases. However, red beans also contain other bioactive components which are dangerous if it is consumed in raw condition. So you should eat red beans that are well cooked or processed.
Try a variety of SlimGourmet menus that use red beans such as vegetarian menus on the Mediterranean and Western menus, soup in the Indonesian menu, Mediterranean, Western, and also in a dessert menu such as Sweet Red Bean Soup.
