Canned Green Beans

Green Beans
  • Canned green beans contribute fiber, vitamins A and C, potassium and folate, among other important nutrients.
  • When cost of preparation time is considered, canned green beans provide fiber and folate at a lower cost than fresh and frozen.

  • Canned green beans require no preservatives.  Once the vegetables are picked and packed at the peak of ripeness, they're cooked quickly at high temperatures and sterilized in steel cans to keep in nutrients.
  • Most companies that pack canned green beans are located very close to the field where they are grown.

Quick Tips for Using Canned Green Beans:

  • Finely chop green beans and mix in with ground beef before baking meatloaf, burgers or meatballs for extra flavor and nutrition.
  • Serve with butter, Worcestershire, lemon juice, cumin and slivered almonds for a fancy, delicious side dish!
  • Open, heat, serve!
