What are Fava Beans? Uses and Health Benefits of Fava Beans

Fava beans are one of the oldest plants cultivated. They are also known as horse beans, pigeon beans and broad beans. They are very popular in Mediterranean cuisine, being a part of several summer dishes. They are also dried to be used in winters. They have a very unique flavor and creamy texture which makes them the centre of focus of many dishes. Fava Beans act as protectors for delicate soils as they grow very rapidly and replenish the nutrient richness of the soil. They have a big range of necessary minerals and nutrients namely phosphorus, potassium, vitamin K, vitamin A and iron. They are also enriched with dopamine which functions as a neurotransmitter in the brain. These beans help to regulate blood pressure and maintain healthy bones
