If you’re vegan or vegetarian, or are simply trying to eat a more plant-based diet, chances are you probably eat a lot of beans. I used to just pick up whatever brand appealed to me. But after learning how toxic BPA is, I pretty much stuck to Eden brand for my canned beans, which is widely available but kind of expensive. (Isn’t part of the point of beans that they’re supposed to be cheap?) I do cook mine from dry as much as possible, but the convenience of canned beans means that they are sometimes the go-to, especially during busy times.
Now, Whole Foods has their own brand of non-BPA beans, and they’re quite a bit cheaper than the Eden brand. Plus, I swear they taste fresher than most canned foods, which I attribute to the fact that they’re so new.
