Reviews for Thrive Market Organic Black Beans

Why You’ll Love Organic Black Beans

We consider beans one of our favorite pantry staples! As one of the world's oldest cultivated crops, beans (also known as legumes or pulses) are highly prized as an excellent source of protein and fiber. They’re also extremely versatile: from soups and stews, salads to dips, there are so many ways to use this nutrient-packed food.

Thrive Market’s prepared black beans are grown, processed, and packed right here in the USA. Our specially selected beans go through a patented cleaning process to removes any debris prior to cooking. Once cooked, the beans are carefully packed in water in BPA-free pouches, allowing them to maintain their shape and texture. But that’s not all, these 10 oz. pouches are shelf stable and will be good to eat for up to two years.

As always, Thrive Market strives to offer the best whole food products, and our beans are no exception. Certified organic, gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, no preservatives, and no artificial flavors—just natural bean goodness.

A brief history

Black beans are native to South and Central America, and were first domesticated thousands of years ago in Peru. Called buul in the Mayan language and frijoles negros in Spanish, they became a staple of the South American diet. It wasn’t until the 1500s that they were introduced into European culture after the explorers returned home with them.

A nutritionist’s dream food

The black bean might be small in stature, but it packs in a ton of nutrition. Here’s why beans like this one should be a part of your regular diet:

  • Rich in Nutrients: Black beans have plenty of iron, magnesium, and folate.

  • Source of Lean Protein: Each serving of black beans contains 7 grams of protein, making this a great plant-based protein source.

  • High in Fiber: The insoluble fiber in beans is an important dietary ingredient that is beneficial to the digestive system.

One small step away from complete

Complete proteins are made up of nine essential amino acids that we need to function. A “complete” or “whole” protein usually comes from meat, dairy, soy, or quinoa. If you’re a vegetarian, vegan, or someone who simply wants to cut back on animal proteins or soy, then beans are the perfect way to do it. Black beans, specifically, contain eight of the nine basic amino acids that make up a “complete” protein, but are a little low on methionine. All you have to do is eat some whole grain bread or brown rice to “complete” the protein.

The amazing antioxidant superhero

We hear about antioxidants a lot, but what exactly makes them such a big deal? Antioxidants are a type of phytochemical that fights "free radicals”, or rogue molecules, that disrupt normal cell function in the body. Naturally, our body produces free radicals as a byproduct of cell metabolism, and normally we can handle them. But eating foods that are high in antioxidants can help protect cells when free radicals overpopulate—this sometimes due to environmental factors like pollution. To get to the point, since black beans are chock full of antioxidants, they may be useful in detoxifying these free radicals, possibly reducing the risk of cell disruption in the body and allowing you to feel your best self.

Endless options with black beans

Black beans have long been a staple in diets around the world, particularly in Central and South America and in the Caribbean. In Mexico’s Yucatan region, buul keken is a soup made of black beans and pork, usually served on Mondays. And in Cuba, black beans are often served with rice and called congri or Moros y Cristianos, or made into a soup known as sopa de frijoles negros. As for Brazil, their beloved national dish, feijoada, is a hearty stew made of several types of cured meats and —you guessed it—black beans.

Besides these exciting dishes, there are an endless amount of ways to use these beans that even a kitchen novice can tackle. Toss a spoonful onto a green salad to make it more filling, and add other ingredients for extra flavor like onion, corn, and tomato. Also try pureed black beans that can take the place of mashed potatoes, or use as a healthy hummus-like dip. Even mashed beans can be mixed with spices and other veggies to make a meatless burger patty. Oh, and don’t forget dessert—black beans hide themselves well in a chocolate cake or brownie batter! The options are nearly endless.
