Black Beans have a unique earthy flavor profile and have been a staple in many central and South American diets for years…but now the health benefits are being documented as well. For example, black bean carbohydrates provide primarily a “resistant starch” i.e. the starch is not converted into simple sugars and our blood sugar level can avoid a quick rise. Second, they are a great source of Phytonutrients found in the “seed coat” …scientists conclude it makes sense to think about black beans in the same category as red cabbage, red onions, or even blueberries because they feature a rich flavonoid composition. And in large-scale human studies black beans have shown a general tendency toward better overall fat metabolism when included as part of a routine meal plan.
FOOD STORAGE RECOMMENDATION: Studies recommended 60-80 pounds of beans and legumes per adult/per year as part of a balanced subsistence diet. It is good to have a variety, of course, but Black Beans are wonderfully versatile for so many recipes!

*Re-Sealable (so… use it up as you go!)
The Mylar is heat-sealed (which makes the bag re-sealable). The sealed Mylar will stay air-tight if it’s not punctured. Because it is re-sealable you can snip a corner off the bag, pour out as much product as you’ll use in the next few months, then quickly* re-seal the Mylar and send your food back into long-term storage. The oxygen pack should continue to do its job as long as you re-seal the Mylar as quickly as possible. IMPORTANT: If your bag is left open for more than 30 minutes, you will want to toss in a new oxygen pack before re-sealing to ensure long-term freshness. If you have opened and re-sealed multiple times, and want to store the remainder for many years, you will want to put in a new oxygen pack.
