Are canned beans as nutritious as dried?
Canned and dried beans provide the same nutrients. If you look at the numbers, canned beans may seem to contain fewer calories and less fibre, but that’s because they are often plumper (from absorbing more water), so there are fewer beans per serving. Their main drawback is the added sodium. However, you can rinse away as much as 40% by draining and running them under water for about a minute. Or look for low or reduced-sodium versions. Keep a variety of canned beans in the pantry for last-minute meals.
