If you’ve got some questions about how healthy butter beans really are and why then you’ve definitely come to the right place. Keep reading to discover all you need to know. 

Are butter beans healthy? 

To put it simply, yes, butter beans can be classed as a healthy and nutrient-dense food. If you’re struggling for inspiration on how to get more of them into your diet, then we’ve added some tasty plant-based recipes at the bottom of this article.


A guide to the butter bean’s health benefits

Butter beans are low in calories but extra filling for their size, making them a great food to support weight loss as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Not to mention that they’re full of antioxidants which are key in protecting the body from free radical damage. 

Perhaps most surprising of all, a cup of butter beans is around 10% of your daily recommended vitamin C intake, vital in maintaining our immune health – who knew that they had it in them?
