We sprout and stone-grind 100% organic black beans to make a rich, earthy flour that’s a delicious addition to sweet and savory dishes alike. Use it as a gluten-free flour in brownies, breads, and pizza crusts. Mix it into veggie burgers as a binder and a protein boost. Make it into a hearty filling for burritos and enchiladas. Enjoy it in creamy homemade black bean dip. The possibilities… and BEAN-efits (hehe)… are endless.
Vegetarians and vegans, rejoice: black bean flour is packed with iron and has more protein per quarter-cup (eight grams, to be exact) than an egg! Black bean flour is also an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, including folate, iron, magnesium, vitamin B1, copper, manganese, phosphorus, and molybdenum. Black beans are low-glycemic and fiber-rich, so unlike with refined flour, you don’t have to worry about blood sugar spikes.
And it’s sprouted! Our Better Than Roasted (BTR) sprouting process maximizes the bioavailability of essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in yummy black beans. It also removes bitterness and concentrates flavor, yielding a sweeter, more easily digestible, and more flavorful flour. Read more about our BTR process HERE.
Once they’re soaked and sprouted, we stone-grind the beans slosly at low temperatures to further preserve sensitive vitamins and nutrients. Read about the benefits of stone grinding HERE.
FUN FACT! Black beans get their deep black color from anthocyanins, the same vision-boosting antioxidants found in blueberries and bilberries.
