Alce Nero organic boiled Borlotti beans are sourced exclusively from Italian farms. The Borlotti variety is a plant with fruit featuring a slightly yellow pod which is streaked with red. The seeds, when raw, are ivory in colour with burgundy-brown mottling. They take on a dark colour when cooked and the interior becomes floury. Perfect for soups, purees and broths, beans are a balanced foodstuff which is free from cholesterol and particularly rich in protein.
