Are canned vegetables healthy ?
In addition to their popularity, canned vegetables also have lots of health benefits. Canned vegetables are an excellent source of protein and A, C, and E vitamins. Legumes are also very rich in folate, fiber, iron, phosphorus, calcium, sodium, potassium.
Health and nutrition experts agree that legumes are an important part of a healthy, nutritious and delicious diet. Following are our top seven reasons why everyone should eat more legumes with supporting resources listed.
- Eating canned vegetables can promote digestive health.
- Fibrous friend: The fiber in legumes is not messing around! Two cups of pulse provide the entire recommended daily value of fiber. It’s also believed that the fiber in pulses help to regulate levels of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.
- Eating canned vegetables can help prevent heart disease.
- Eating canned vegetables can help control blood sugar.
- Eating canned vegetables can help people lose or maintain weight.
- People who eat canned vegetables regularly have a longer life expectancy than people who don’t eat canned vegetables regularly.
- Delivers digestive support: Around ¾ of the fiber found in pulses is insoluble fiber, which remains undigested until it is in the bottom of the digestive tract. Nutritional studies have found that pulse fiber can be metabolized by the colon’s bacteria to produce short-chain fatty acids such as acetic, propionic, and butyric acid. This process can lower the risk of colon cancer and other issues in that part of the body.
