Fava Beans


Fava beans were enjoyed by ancient Egyptians 5,000 years ago and 3,000 years later continued to be a prime source of protein in the Near East. The Fava is a large, brown bean, these beans are often considered the tastiest bean around, along with being the meatiest bean.  The Fava grows in large pods that house approximately five beans each.

In Europe, Fava bean flour is used as a "flour Improver".  It's active fat-oxidizing enzymes; which generate the beany flavor, also indirectly cause the oxidation and elongation of the gluten protein.

Fava bean flour is frequently found blended with garbanzo bean flour.

Fava Bean Flour is perfect for all kinds of baking including breads, pizza, cakes, and cookies. Bean flours provide protein for superb gluten- free baking. 

Use in place of rice flour in any of your favorite recipes. 

It is best to store any bean flours in the freezer for long term storage.
