Our favourite mix of 8 traditional soup favourites including pinto beans, red chilli beans, split peas and lentils helps you create gourmet soups and stews packed with nutrition and flavour. "Souper" soups made simple. Our 8 Bean Soup Mix combines some of the world's most nutritious and satisfying legumes. For example, pinto and black beans contain flavonoids that can help protect cells from damage and prevent inflammation. Beans are low on the glycemic index (which is good), and just one cup can provide over 15 grammes of heart-healthy fiber. Beans thicken soups and add flavour. And our mix makes preparation simple -- we do the measuring, you add water, stock and vegetables and enjoy! Tasty Tips and Storage Terrific in any soup or stew recipe! Beans best retain freshness in the absence of oxygen and light. Oxygen can cause rancidity of bean oils and light may fade bean colour. So store in a cool, dark place, preferably in an airtight container. Freezer storage can increase storage life, but properly stored dried beans can last for a year on your pantry shelf.
