Black Turtle beans are shiny, dark, and rich in flavor. They originate from Central and South America. Nowadays, the major commercial producers of black beans are India and Brazil.
This particular variety of beans is very close to red and white beans in many characteristics. However, black beans hold their shape better while cooking and their original rich taste is often compared to mushrooms.

Health Benefits

As all other legumes, black beans offer some major health benefits:

  • The best source of fiber.
    A cup of cooked black beans provide you with 15 grams (half of the daily dose) of healthy fiber.
  • An exceptional source of protein.
    The same amount of turtle beans also provides you with 15 grams of highly digestible protein (one-third of the daily dose). No other fruits, vegetables, meats, or grains can provide such a good protein fiber combination.
  • Can steady the digestive process.
    Such a unique and efficient combination of protein and fiber allows black beans to steady your digestive process, which results in the optimal chemical balance of bacteria and microorganisms in your intestines.
  • Can regulate blood sugar levels.
    As turtle beans normalize your digestive process, they have the same effect on the food breakdown rate, which prevents severe blood sugar level fluctuations.
  • Can reduce the risk of heart disease.
    Soluble fiber, which you can obtain from consuming black beans has been proven to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and myocardial infarct.
  • Cancer prevention.
    According to results of multiple studies, legumes are considered to be one of the most efficient cancer-prevention foods. Black (turtle) beans are considered to be most efficient of their kind. They are especially helpful in treating and preventing colon cancer.

How to Sprout Beans at Home

  1. Yields approximately 3 Cups (1/2 lb.) of Sprouts. Prep 3 Tablespoons of beans, then transfer into a bowl or into your Sprouter. Add 2-3 times as much cool (60°-70°) water. Mix beans up to assure even water contact for all.
  2. Allow beans to soak for 6-12 hours. Empty the beans into your Sprouter (if necessary). Drain off the soak water. Rinse thoroughly with cool (60°-70°) water. Drain thoroughly! Set your Sprouter anywhere out of direct sunlight and at room temperature (70° is optimal) between Rinses. Ensure sufficient air-circulation is provided.
  3. Always be sure to Drain very thoroughly. The most common cause of inferior sprouts is inadequate drainage. Rinse and Drain again every 8-12 hours for 3 days.

Enjoy your home-made sprouts!
