    Ingredients

    Organic Adzuki Beans

    Organic Adzuki Beans, also known as "azuki" or "aduki" (Vigna angularis), are widely grown throughout eastern Asia and the Himalayas. They have a mildly sweet flavor, and are commonly sweetened further and turned into a bean paste often found in Chinese and Japanese sweets or boiled into a hot, tea-like drink. They are a popular food for festive occasions. In Western civilizations, they are highly regarded in the macrobiotic diet as a food that promotes strengthened kidney and adrenal function. They are often paired with rice to make a complete protein.

    Organic Adzuki Beans are members of the larger family of legumes, a genre of plant species used for their edible seeds and pods, which boast a high nutrient density with low-maintenance production and storage. They contain high levels of fiber and protein, along with essential minerals such as iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc.
