History:
Broad beans are believed to have originated in the Mediterranean. Archaeological digs at Iron and Bronze Age settlements, in different parts of Europe, show that they have been an important food staple for thousands of years.
Historic Uses:
For millennia broad beans were a valuable source of protein, especially when meat was scarce. Broad beans contain copper, niacin, folate and vitamin C. As with all beans, fresh beans provide more of these nutrients than dried.
