HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS
Recent research has shown that black beans provide special support for digestive tract health, and particularly our colon. The indigestible fraction (IF) in black beans has recently been shown to be larger than the IF in either lentils or chickpeas. It has been shown to be the perfect mix of substances for allowing bacteria in the colon to produce butyric acid. Cells lining the inside of the colon can use this butyric acid to fuel their many activities and keep the lower digestive tract functioning properly. By delivering a greater amount of IF to the colon, black beans are able to help support this lower part of our digestive tract. Lowered colon cancer risk that is associated with black bean intake. Many public health organizations–including the American Diabetes Association, the American Heart Association, and the American Cancer Society–recommend legumes as a key food group for preventing disease and optimizing health.

    Great recipe, but your caption about Bragg’s liquid aminos not containing salt is incorrect. It contains no “added salt” but actual has 160 mg per 1/2 teaspoon as listed on their website. This adds up to 960 mg per tablespoon and soy sauce has around 900 mg with the low salt versions having 550 mg of sodium. In my cooking experience I find many people that are taken in by Bragg’s marketing hype of “no added salt” and “natural sodium.” So just use some low sodium tamari and enjoy this yummy tasting hummus with much less salt.

      Thanks for the clarification on this! Very valid points. Won’t make that mistake again! Also, low-sodium soy sauce might just be watered down… hmm!

    I just made this and it’s great! I always prefer black beans over garbanzo, so I love finding new black bean hummus recipes. I had the VegiZest on hand so this recipe is an all around winner! Thanks!
