Eden Foods Orgnaic Aduki Beans, Canned
EDEN Organic Aduki Beans (Paseolus angularis) are organically grown in nutrient rich vital soil on USA family farms committed to a clean environment and the most nutritious, delicious food. The beans are soaked overnight and cooked with purified water and a bit of kombu sea vegetable that softens and brings out their flavor. No salt added.
EDEN Organic Aduki Beans are a compact red bean, rich in color with pleasing texture and flavor. They adapt to any ethnic style, are great for red beans and rice and perfectly complement quinoa. Aduki are also known as azuki or adzuki beans are highly regarded in macrobiotics as a balancing and strengthening food.
Aduki beans are one of Japan's most popular beans. In 1974, Eden's President traveled to Asia and purchased a shipment of these small red beans at the direction of Noburo Muramoto. Shipped down the St. Lawrence River, half of the load was dropped off in Toronto and half at Detroit. These beans were used as seed for our growers and initiated the commercial cultivation of aduki beans in this hemisphere.

Note: consumers may wonder why Eden Foods products do not carry the green "USDA Organic" seal. Eden Foods explains: "Though all EDEN organic food is grown, handled, processed, and certified in a way that meets and exceeds the requirements for using the 'USDA Organic' seal, Eden chooses not to use this seal on its food labels. In short this seal does not approach Eden's standards for organic, in practice or in spirit."
