Pinto beans are a nutrient-rich, low-fat, excellent source of protein and fiber. One cup of pinto beans provides more than 20 percent of the recommended dietary allowance of six vitamins and minerals, as long as you fix them from scratch rather than choosing the canned variety. One cup of boiled pinto beans provides 15 grams or 60% of your daily fiber (based on a 2,000-calorie-a-day diet.) They’re an excellent source of iron, magnesium, manganese, thiamin and vitamin B-6. They’re exceptionally high in folate, too. If you add pinto beans to your diet gradually and eat them regularly, your body has time to adjust, and you can avoid gaseous side effects, according to FamilyDoctor.org. When participants in a research study ate 1/2 cup of pinto beans, baked beans or black-eyed peas daily, 70 percent of those who experienced flatulence in the first week reported it was gone after eating beans regularly for several weeks, according to the November 2011 issue of the “Nutrition Journal.”
