Oprah tells us Hempseeds and Adzuki Beans top Superfoods List for 2012

6 Mar

Well, we knew this back in 2007 when we came up with ingredients for Dee’s Organic Omega Burger which is full of shelled organic hempseeds and for Dee’s Spicy Bean Burger, which is made with Aduki beans, or Adzuki beans, either will do!

Lynn Andriani on the Oprah website says”Hempseeds are rich in magnesium, potassium, iron, protein and essential omega-3, -6 and -9 fatty acids, hemp seeds are tiny but filling. And unlike flaxseeds, they aren’t bound up in a hard shell, so you don’t have to grind them to unlock their nutritional benefits.”

We agree, ADUKI Beans are rich in the best sort of fiber – soluble fiber – which helps to eliminate cholesterol from the body. They are a good source of Phosphorus, Potassium and Copper, and a very good source of Folate and Manganese.  As a low-sodium food they help reduce blood pressure. Not only are they low in fat, but when combined with grains, beans supply high quality protein which provides a healthy alternative to meat or other animal protein. Adzuki beans also contain protease inhibitors which frustrate the development of cancerous cells.  They also support liver and kidney function and are anti-inflammatory
