The most popular bean in Mexico and the Southern United States, sprouted pinto beans are high in protein and fibre. They are very easy to cook (simply boil in water), and will add heartiness to any meal. Sprouting pinto beans reduces cook time, improves digestibility and enhances their taste and texture. The sprouting process already involves a slow soaking period, so sprouted beans don’t require any overnight soaking. That means no thinking ahead for you! They have a soft, tender texture and are a wonderful choice for plant-based protein.
Try in refried beans, chili, bean salads, baked beans and more. You can find recipes using sprouted pinto beans here.

Storage & Shelf Life
After sprouting, we carefully dry the beans back down to their shelf stable moisture levels. This means you can store them as you would store unsprouted beans – in a cool, dry place.
Once you cook your sprouted pulses, they should be stored in an air-tight container in the fridge.
Shelf Life: 2 years
