U.S. organic family EDEN Aduki (adzuki) beans Vigna angularis are soaked overnight, and pressure cooked with no chemical additives at Eden Foods’ organic, kosher cannery. Aduki beans are highly regarded in macrobiotics and adaptable to any cuisine. The mildly sweet red bean is strengthening, balancing, and easy to digest. They are the most popular bean in Japan, traditionally served on New Year’s to bring good fortune. They are a festive bean in that culture. There are many dessert and confection recipes based on aduki beans. In 1974, Eden Foods arranged a shipment of aduki to Detroit down the St. Lawrence Seaway, leaving half in Toronto on the way. Eden distributed them to organic farmers for use as seed which brought aduki bean cultivation to the Western Hemisphere. They are delicious in soup, stew, dips, spreads, desserts, with winter squash, sweet corn, and other sweet vegetables, an excellent whole grain compliment. No salt added EDEN beans in BPA, BPS, and phthalate free cans since 1999.
