The Benefits of Beans
     
   

The July, 1993 New England Journal of Medicine featured a finding that concluded: "Very high intakes of foods rich in soluble fiber lower blood cholesterol levels, even when the main dietary modifiers of blood lipids-namely, saturated fat and cholesterol- are greatly reduced."

The University of Toronto study cited by the NEJM is an important endorsement by the medical science comm unity of what many nutritionists have been saying for years. Beans, rich in protein, complexcarbohydrates and soluble fiber,can be an important factor in reducing blood cholesterol levels
and preventing heart disease.

Specifically included in the study were beans in pre-cooked form, such as canned beans, chili, etc., along with other foods high in soluble fiber like barley, lentils, and peas. By keeping fat and cholesterol levels very low, researchers were able to clearly establish the value of a diet high in soluble fiber in lowering blood cholesterol.
