Nutritional Information

Green beans are a good source of carbohydrates, weighing in at around 10 grams in a cup of simply cooked beans. These carbs come in a healthy package that includes high percentages of your daily value of vitamins A, C, and K, folate, and manganese. These nutrients and the numerous others found in green beans offer cardiovascular protection, promote colon health, and have very strong anti-inflammatory effects. Warning: green beans are among a small number of foods containing oxalates, which may interfere with absorption of calcium, a concern to people with kidney or gallbladder problems or those needing to build their calcium stores.
