Bayo beans (organic)

$9.00

Bacon-y  •  Creamy  •  Firm 

 

Popular in Central Mexico, these smooth, leather-colored beans are like a firmer, creamier pinto. We love their dense, smooth consistency and bacon-y notes, which pair perfectly with salty, tangy, and spicy flavors. These beans are one of the best choices for refried beans, frijoles de la olla, and other Mexican-inspired recipes. Serve on its own, or alongside grilled chicken.

 

Looking for heirloom and organic beans? You're in the right place. There are plenty of nuances when it comes to beans, and our beans are from recent harvests, packed with flavor and nutrition, and grown by climate-conscious family farms.

Nutritious for all human beans

Bean

Plant protein: Boost your plant-based protein intake, naturally. One cup of cooked beans provides ~16 g of protein (varies by bean).

Lots of fiber: Beans have an impressive 12-20 grams of fiber per cup (varies by bean). Fiber helps keep your cholesterol levels at bay and your digestion in check ;)

Sustained energy: The complex carbs in beans keep your blood sugar levels steady, helping you feel energized for hours.

Key nutrients: High in iron, zinc, folate, potassium, magnesium, and antioxidants (oh my!), beans have everything you need to feel healthy and happy daily.

Sourcing notes

The state of Zacatecas, northwest of Mexico City, has a rich history of thriving nomadic tribes as old as the Aztecs, and is the original site for some of the world’s first beans. Today, thousands of experienced small-scale farmers are Mexico’s leading producers of guavas, chiles, nopales, and, of course, beans– benefiting from the sunny, semi-arid climate and rich, red soils.

We partnered with Armando Klein of Darmstadt Organics, who helped organize the farms in his community into a cooperative– so that they can benefit from shared resources and collectively innovate, like achieving organic certification and promoting crops that are important symbols of regional identity.
