Adzuki beans (vigna angularis), were originally grown in East Asia, and are most widespread in Japan, China, and Korea. They have a cylindrical round shape of 5mm in diameter, and are dark red-brown in colour, with a white ridge on the side. Andes Harvest grows these beans from our Argentinian farmlands and export to the world.
Adzuki beans contain a good source of nutrients, minerals and vitamins. They have a rich amount of Iron, Copper, Vitamin B9, Manganese and Phosphorus. They are also rich in protein, fiber and antioxidants. Health benefits include prevention of diabetes, gastrointestinal issues, weight control as well as boosting brain function, bones and teeth.
Adzuki beans can be eaten in sweet or savory applications in a very wide range of products such as soups, salads, coffee, stews, and many other side dishes. They can also be added in different forms such as sprouted or paste. Adzuki beans have been known to have functional as well as interesting results when added to confectionary, bakery and dessert products as well.
