Footnotes:

This food, briefly described as BEANS,FAVA,IN POD,RAW, supplies an extra generous amount of the following vitamins, minerals and nutrients:
Energy This food has a high source of energy. The amount of energy is measured in joules or Calories (kilocals).


Protein is the major structural component of all cells in the body and function as enzymes in membranes as transport carriers and as some hormones. During digestion and absorption, dietary proteins are broken down into amino acids which become building blocks of these fuctional and structural compounds. Fatty acids, total polyunsaturated 18:2 undifferentiated Ω6
Fiber, total dietary Function: Adequate fiber improves laxation. Reduces the risk of coranary heart disease. Helps maintain normal blood glucose levels.
Carbohydrate, by difference The RDA for carbohydrates is based on its role as the primary energy source for the brain. The AMDR is based on its role as a source of Calories (kcal) while maintaining body weight.
Total Sugars should not exceed 25% of calorie intake
Calcium, Ca, is the essential role in blood clotting, muscle contraction, nerve transmission, bone and tooth formation Copper, Cu, is a component of enzymes in iron metabolism. Iron, Fe, prevents microcitic hypochromic anemia. Magnesium, Mg, is a cofactor for enzyme systems. Manganese, Mn, is involved in formation of bone, as well as enzymes involved in amino acid, cholsterol and carbohydrate metabolism. Phosphorus, P, helps in the maintenance of PH, storage and transfer of energy and nucleotide synthesis. Potassium, K, maintains cell function. Potassium blunts the rise in blood pressure due to excess sodium intake and decrease recurrence of kidney stones Zinc, Zn, is a component of multiple enzymes and proteins; involved in the regulation of gene expression. Vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol) is a chain-breaking antioxidant. Thiamin aka Vitamin B-1 Riboflavin aka Vitamin B-2 is a conenzyme in numerous redux reactions. Niacin is a coenzyme in metabolism of Carbohydrates and branched amino acids. Folate, total is a coenzyme in the metabolism of nucleic and amino acids. Folate prevents megaloblastic anemia. Lutein + zeaxanthin Folate, food Folate, DFE Phytosterols Stigmasterol Campesterol Beta-sitosterol
