Black soybeans are just delicious. You can use black soybeans, which are low in carbs, in all kinds of dishes, including chili and dips. Naturally low-carb black soybeans’ flavor is great in anything, and they have all kinds of positives:

  • Low net carbs: The official count on a 1/2 cup of black soybeans is 8 grams of carbs and 7 grams of fiber — pretty awesome at only 1 net gram of carbs.

  • Health benefits: Soybeans are high in protein and fiber, low in saturated fat and cholesterol, lactose free, and a great source of omega-3 fatty acids.

    In addition to all of the nutrients in soybeans, ongoing research is proving that they reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases, including coronary heart disease.

Call your supermarket to see whether they carry black soybeans before you make a trip across town to the health-food store.
