Our Organic Adzuki Beans have a sweet, nutty flavor and can be sprouted or cooked to a soft consistency. Popular in Asia and often used to sweeten desserts, adzuki beans can be served as a side dish mixed with rice or your favorite greens.
Adzuki beans are a nutrient-dense food, providing a generous source of nutrients compared to their low caloric content. They are a source of potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, manganese, and zinc. They also contain vitamins B6, B2, B1, B3, and folic acid. Adzukis may help to support healthy energy levels, digestive function, a healthy weight, balanced urinary system, healthy elimination, and a strong metabolism.
To Sprout: Soak 1/2 cup of organic adzuki beans in cool 70ºF filtered water for 12 hours. Then rinse and drain well. Keep seeds out of direct sunlight and rinse and drain thoroughly with cool water every 8 to 12 hours for the next 3 days. You may stop when the sprouts are small or continue to rinse and drain every 8 to 12 hours until the sprouts have reached your desired length.
