Reawakening of the beans! 1,2
1.- Beans contain a high protein content.
2.- Beans contain minerals and vitamins.
In particular, 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 contain a low glycemic index, which makes all 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 defense mechanism in the body 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 pretty beans that are white on one side and red on the other, like a white/red Yin Yang sign. Our Calypso beans are very good for a healthy diet and a good body feeling, 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. The beans are very aromatic and have a slightly milder taste than red beans. Our Calypso beans have a low proportion of broken beans 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 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 is made up of 3 groups, Dustkul Bogi, Turkestan Gulba und Turob Baba. They include around 1,000 individual farmers, along with their families. 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 harvesting. During our final multiple cleaning in the laser cleaning system, the Calypso beans are checked individually to rule out any foreign contamination. The beans are also pressure treated. When it comes to printing, the interaction of pressure and time ensures absolute freedom from pests.
