Lima beans are often called 'butter beans' due to their creamy consistency and nutty flavour. Scientifically named Phaseolus lunatus, white lima beans are a good source of manganese, a necessary cofactor in several enzymes, that is important in energy production and antioxidant defences. Besides, they are a good source of cholesterol-lowering soluble fibre, which prevents blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after meals, making them a good choice for individuals with diabetes or hypoglycemia. The soluble fibre within the bean absorbs water in the stomach, forming a gel that slows down the metabolism of the bean's carbohydrates. Lima beans also contain insoluble fibre, which research studies have shown prevent not only constipation but also inhibits digestive disorders like irritable bowel syndrome and diverticulosis. Wondering how to cook them? Pre-soak your beans in plenty of water for at least 8 hours. This removes the naturally occurring Lectin and Saponin found in many pulses, which can impede digestion. Afterwards, you want to cook your beans for about 15 minutes and let them sit for two more hours in hot water, giving them know and then a stir.
