Dried beans become staple food in many countries where food is scarce during the winter season. White beans are usually the most common kind of bean to be purchased in bulk to store for these winter seasons.  It is also one of the more affordable types of beans.

White beans are considered super foods due to the high mineral, vitamin, fiber and protein content. This is also one of the reasons why it is on high demand during the winter seasons because these beans leaves you feeling full for longer and suppresses food cravings. In the Middle East, people are known to eat bean dishes during Ramadan’s sahor for this very reason.

Many countries plant and process white kidney beans. Egypt is known for producing high quality produce and the prices offered from Egyptian suppliers are definitely competitive with the other major markets such as India and China. As the local farmers plant ample crops, the supply never disappoints the demand in the market. Thus, the price depends on the amount of white beans that are circulating the local market.

White beans have amazing health benefits. They are rich in antioxidants which also carry cancer fighting properties.

It has also been proven that children who consume white beans on a regular basis since birth showed improved cognitive abilities as it is necessary for the formation of brain cells.

Perhaps many rural communities who eat white beans on a daily basis aren’t fully aware of the dietary and health benefits. They have been eating it since the beginning of time and have continued to do so. A regular serving of beans is also able to feed more people with hunger being satisfied than what rice or bread would do. 

Currently the top suppliers of white bean is China, India, Egypt and South Africa.
