LOVE CANADIAN BEANS

Local, nutritious, sustainable. Canadian beans are a versatile ingredient that can elevate any dish.


#LoveCDNBeans by taking some time to learn about Canada’s bean industry and support your local bean growers.

CANADIAN BEANS:
JUST THE FACTS

  • Beans are high in protein and fibre. High fibre diets have been associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, colorectal cancer, and type 2 diabetes.¹
  • Beans pack a nutrient punch! In just a half cup serving, you get 9 grams of protein and fibre, plus high levels of iron, zinc, folate, magnesium and potassium.
  • Adding beans to your favourite recipes can help double the level of protein and fibre.
  • Did you know canned beans are just as nutritious as dry? They are already cooked and ready to use, easy to add to any recipe!

GROWN BY YOUR LOCAL FARMER

Canada is a leading producer of dry beans,  known world wide for their high quality and sustainability benefits. Canadian beans are primarily grown in Ontario, Alberta and Manitoba. 

WHERE CAN I FIND CANADIAN BEANS?

Most beans sold on Canadian store shelves are produced by a Canadian bean grower, so you can feel good knowing you are supporting local food. Look for a Product of Canada label on the beans found at your favourite store.
