Butter Bean (Val)
Beans are packed with protein, fiber, and other nutrients, making them a superfood. Lima beans are an especially good source of iron. One cup of lima beans contains roughly one quarter of your daily recommended iron
Lima beans are more than just related to butter beans, they are the same thing! In the South, lima beans are often called butter beans and in the UK they almost exclusively refer to them as butter beans. Lima beans can be consumed in both their immature stage (fresh and green) as well as their mature (dried and beige).
