1.- Beans are high in protein.
2.- Beans contain minerals and vitamins.
Above all, calcium, magnesium, iron and potassium as well as vitamins B2, B6, C, E, beta-carotene and folic acid are found in significant amounts in beans.
3.- Beans are high in fiber, which can be particularly useful in preventing colon cancer.
4.- Beans have a low glycemic index, which makes diabetics happy.
5.- Beans provide more variety on our plate and, thanks to their slow food properties, bring us closer to our actual body rhythm.
6.- Beans contain a very high antioxidant capacity of approx. 8400 µmol TE (ORAC value = Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity).
By consuming foods rich in antioxidants, the body's defense mechanism can be strengthened and an overproduction of free radicals can be balanced out. An ORAC daily requirement between 5000 and 7000 is recommended.3
Our organic Fairtrade Calyspo beans are very beautiful beans that are white on one half and red on the other half, like a white / red Yin Yang symbol. Our calypso beans are very good for a healthy diet and a good body image, because they contain the positive properties mentioned above. The calypso beans are medium-sized or slightly smaller than kidney / red beans, although their size increases slightly due to the necessary soaking. In terms of taste, the beans are very aromatic and slightly softer than red beans. Our Calypso beans have a low percentage of breakage and are very pure due to the increased careful cleaning.
We source our organic Fairtrade Calypso beans exclusively from Uzbekistan. They mature there, in the gardens and fields of the Fairtrade farmers in a picturesque setting around Samarkand. The area is largely organic and FAIRTRADE certified. The farmers belong to a large Fairtrade community, which consists of 3 groups, Dustkul Bogi, Turkiston Gulba and Turob Bobo. Around 1000 individual farmers and their families belong to them. Thanks to the cooperation with Fairtrade, the farmers can offer their families a secure income and their children a new perspective.
Our organic calypso beans go through several different cleaning steps after harvest. During our subsequent multiple cleaning in the laser cleaning system, the Calypso beans are checked individually in order to rule out any foreign contamination. The beans are also pressure treated. With pressure removal, the interaction of pressure and time ensures absolute freedom from pests.
