Why You’ll Love Organic Black Beans (2-pack)
Few foods have found their way into so many different types of cuisines as the black bean. Richly flavored, easy to find, and able to blend into virtually any type of meal, black beans are a mainstay in the pantries of many people across the country.
Black beans have a long history dating back thousands of years, and today they are still a part of the diet of millions. Eden Food Organic Black Beans provides two cans of black beans that are completely organic and GMO free, giving people the peace of mind that they’re getting the best health and nutrition no matter how they use them.
The health benefits of black beans
From burritos to burgers to dips, black beans are incredibly versatile and can fit into almost any meal plan. They also offer a number of major health benefits that make them well worth paying attention to. Here are some of the biggest benefits you’ll get from black beans:
- Lower blood pressure: Black beans have naturally low levels of sodium and high levels of potassium and magnesium. Both of those compounds have been shown to decrease blood pressure and therefore, help prevent strokes. To get even lower sodium, rinse the canned black beans before cooking.
- Healthy bones: Black beans also contain high levels of calcium, iron, manganese, and zinc. These are all compounds that can help improve overall bone density and bone strength. As a result, eating plenty of foods high in these minerals can help prevent things like osteoporosis.
- Better diabetes management: Research has found that diabetic patients who eat high-fiber foods end up with lower blood glucose levels and have an easier time managing their blood sugar levels. Black beans, like most legumes, are incredibly rich in fiber and can help diabetics control their symptoms.
- Better digestion: The high fiber content in Eden Food Organic Black Beans means that the dietary fiber intake is increased. This helps promote better digestion, prevents constipation, and more.
- Weight loss: Fiber does more than just help digestion—it can also help you lose weight. The reason is because foods that are high in fiber help increase satiety, allowing you to feel fuller faster and stay filled longer, which in turn means eating less. In short, Eden Food Organic Black Beans can help shed pounds and control food cravings.
- Prevents heart disease: The combination of folate, vitamin B6, fiber, and potassium found in black beans create a strong defense against heart disease. Vitamin B6 and folate prevent the buildup of heart damaging compounds like homocysteine, and fiber reduces the overall levels of cholesterol absorbed by the body.
In addition to all of these direct benefits, Eden Food Organic Black Beans also provides high levels of nutrition to the body. They’re an excellent source of protein, providing 30 percent of the daily recommended allowance in just one cup. They also deliver a good amount of carbohydrates, giving the body and mind energy to move through the day. Combine all of these things together and there is a recipe for better health and nutrition—all from a little black bean.
The Eden Foods difference
Eden Foods got its start in Ann Arbor in the late 1960s and is the oldest natural and organic food company in the country. The business is committed to providing consumers with foods that they can feel good about eating, sourcing from trusted farms and using non-GMO, totally organic crops. This means you can buy Eden Food Organic Black Beans with confidence—knowing you’re getting a great tasting product that is also free from the harmful chemicals.
Great combinations to remember
The versatility of Eden Food Organic Black Beans means that they can be used in a wide range of recipes and cooking styles. From chili to tacos to black bean burgers, there are numerous ways to incorporate them into a dish. Doing so means needing some additional ingredients, however. Here are a few things to pick up when buying black beans to ensure you have all that is needed for a great meal.
Black beans are a nutritious replacement for meat in chili recipes, or a good addition to add to the mixture. But for the best chili, good chili powder is needed. This variety is organic, GMO free, and provides the delicious taste chili deserves.
Whether you’re making burritos or a bean and rice bowl, this rice can complete a black bean based meal. It’s gluten free and organic, and is as nutritious as it is delicious.
Black beans are commonly used in Spanish cuisine, and are a perfect when mixed with chips and salsa. Tomatillo salsa, like this, offers a bright and tangy flavor that tomato based salsa can’t usually provide.
What better way to start that Mexican meal featuring than with black bean corn tortilla chips? They’ll get a party started, are great for dipping into a dip made with Eden Food Organic Black Beans.

makes an AWESOME brownie
I admit it--I'm addicted to vegan black bean brownies, and I made them mostly sugar free (stevia/xylitol) so they are guilt free. I've been going through these cans like hot potatoes--you must try! My son loves them, too--he says "It's the texture that does it." BlACK BEANS! Makes an amazing smooth textured brownie.
a kitchen staple
There is almost no end of ways to enjoy these black beans. I know that I can find black beans cheaper at the grocery store - but not of this quality. I'm not about to compromise in that way - most especially when feeding them to my grandchildren.
Eden Organic No Salt Added Black Beans
As with all Eden Organic beans and products, these are excellent - a real staple in our house in so many different recipes! Extra good is the 15mg of sodium vs. the normal, making them even more healthy and delicious! PS - BPA-free cans too!
Used these to make a yummy chili, didn't miss the added salt at all!
Eden Foods is always good
Black beans are the best bean for fiber and protein. Use these a dozen different ways. Very good.
These beans are one of the best things that I've gotten from Thrive; high quality organic food that I am happy to eat. I do wish that you could buy them in larger quantity; I feel like every time I go to make an order on Thrive, they are out of stock or I can only buy 2-two packs.
I don't have access to organic foods where I live so I'm so glad to find them here at Thrive for a good price. There is a huge and very noticeable difference in the taste, appearance and bite between organic beans and grocery store brands and these are no exception.
My wife told me to buy beans for Mexican Night- so I did. Happy wife is a happy life and these beans sure did the trick. I was at my desk working toward a deadline when I remembered that I can order from Thrive!
We were making chicken tacos and I figured that black beans would do the trick! She was excited that I bought Certified Organic and Non-GMO- she thought I didn't know about these certifications.
Crisis averted! Will buy again!

Best on the market
These are really great, high quality beans. Our family uses them in salads, soups, or as a side for almost anything. They are tender, tasty, and healthy! Plus, there are no additives or preservatives , I definitely recommend!
- R. Wright
My go-to easy lunch is black beans, rice, and sour cream in a tortilla. I don't have the time or patience to make them from dry beans like my mom used to, but it's really disappointing when over half of the can is full of black bean mush!
These are packed very well, and most of the beans are still whole! They also don't taste like they came out of a can! Nothing will ever taste like Mom's, but these do taste like they've been made fresh! They also don't have lard, so my vegetarian wife can eat them too!

High in magnesium and fiber!
Black beans have become a frequent meal in my home. In addition to them being tasty, they are packed with great benefits such as magnesium and fiber.
They made a good soup but re-frying them sucked most of the moisture out. I tried refraining from adding olive oil, however, it was the only way to improve the consistency. I will stick to using in soups.
- S. Henry
The best thing about these beans is that you're not paying for a can that is a third water and the rest beans plus no plastic in the can. I enjoy eating them the most with brown rice and meat, pretty simple. I also have these beans to thank for my cholesterol dropping.

Tasty Beans When Mixed
These beans are made by one of the first organic companies.
These beans are very tasty I just can't eat them by themselves because they are not seasoned. Sometimes I next them into macaroni and cheese to and a little smokey flavor but, usually eat them with Mexican food. They are a great pairing with brown rice and grass-fed meats. Most other brands are heavy on salt, this one is not.
Be advised, these are flavored with natural kombu. If you are sensitive to this, you may want look elsewhere.

A pantry staple!
Perfect, especially for busy people
I love these. They don't have any added artificial ingredients, so they're super healthy, and they require no time at all to prepare. I don't have the time right now to deal with dried beans (though I wish I did), so these are a perfect solution.
Love these beans
I've bought Eden Foods garbanzo beans before, so I tried the black bean version. It's almost as good, filled with the pure taste of organic beans with no added salt, sugar or oils. It's really good for my nachos, and I'm telling you, beans are the key to good nachos. You need good black beans that are firm and flavorful to offset the crunchy chips and tangy cheese. These are great.
- Essie Maldonado
Perfect black beans! I love that they're so simple to heat up in the microwave (if you're being lazy like I am), and they don't get mushy or anything. They have a perfect texture, and they help me stay full long after I'm done with eating them for lunch. Since they don't add any extra sodium, I also feel way less guilty about eating these instead of dried beans.
- Terri W.
Cook perfectly and taste great
I am a big black bean fan. I eat them on salads, over nachos with cheese, and also on rice-especially jasmine rice. I really enjoyed these beans they cook perfectly. They weren't too soft once cooked and they also didn't taste too "raw". Some brands don't cook thoroughly and are a bit tough to chew-but not these. These were simply perfect.

I can't wait to have these beans with more of my meals!
I ate these beans along with some organic chicken the other day. They taste really good, and they're also healthy too. They are full of flavor, and they have a ton of protein in them. I can't wait to have these beans with more of my meals!
- Helen Carpenter
Great product , but I have issues with the company.
So I only gave 3 stars because I learn that Eden Foods has some Conservative views on social issues that I do not agree with. That said, I need to keep my sodium intake down and it is hard to find black beans without salt added. So I'm torn, but the beans are delicious and organic too.
- Ms. P. Carter
These are a staple in my pantry. I'd like to make dried beans from scratch at home, but these are just so easy. I like to put them over baked sweet potatoes with some guacamole and in quinoa salads. They're the most natural canned beans you can get.
