Northarvest’s Consumer Information Program
An important program of the Northarvest Bean Growers Association is to educate consumers about the health benefits of beans. For more information on beans, including health information, recipes and more, visit one of these sites:
The Bean Institute — This website is intended to help both dietitians and consumers improve their awareness and understanding of the nutrition and health benefits of dry beans and provide interesting ways to add them to your menu! To learn more, go to www.beaninstitute.com.
The World Bean Kitchen: Passport to Flavor — The Culinary Institute of America’s resource on the use of beans in great cuisine. Northarvest partners with the Culinary Institute of America to provide digital media to consumers. There are various delicious bean recipes, videos and demonstrations that can be accessed through their Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, Twitter and Instagram!
Beans for Life – The “Beans for Life” campaign was created by Northarvest Bean Growers Association, a farmer-led coalition representing North America’s largest supplier of dry beans, to raise awareness, and create a positive narrative around the health and wellness benefits of consuming beans.
