Which one is the correct info for the broad bean...

Post by Silhorn » Wed Feb 10, 2010 3:04 am

Hi,

I am trying to find out which nutritional information for the broad bean is the correct one.

This is from nutritiondata.com serving 1 cup:

http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts/legu ... cts/4322/2
24P 73C 3F

This is from calorie king australia website:
http://www.calorieking.com.au/foods/cal ... WFucw.html
68P 22C 10F

I had bought a packet of broad beans and the information it showed seems to be right with link no.2 but when i went into nutrition data it showed totally different values.

Could someone tell me why is this? Are they showing values for 2 different broad beans or something?

ND tends to be the most accurate I've found.

Also, I would find it hard to believe that any beans would only have 4g of carbs per cup, which also says that ND is probably the accurate one.

Also, if these were the way that calorie king says, I feel like you'd be hearing about them non-stop in bodybuilder circles, which I never have.
