Organic Butter Bean is the name given to the white, flat legume that is also called the lima bean.  Butter beans are usually cream or pale green in colour.

Organic Butter Beans originate from the Andes and were domesticated first in about 2000BC. 

Organic Butter Beans are low in fat and a source of protein and fibre. These Suma organic dried butter beans come from China.  Dried lima beans or butter beans can be served cooked themselves as a hot vegetable or in salads.
