OVERVIEW
Lima bean is a very popular food crop, being used mainly for its seeds and immature seedpods. There are many different varieties of the plant, producing a wide range of beans, including the large, white ‘butter bean’. The plant was already widely cultivated in the Americas before the arrival of the Europeans, who then spread it thoughout Africa, Asia etc. It is widely cultivated nowadays for its edible seed and seedpods in many tropical to warm temperate areas of the world.

Health, cooking, and nutrition:
Lima beans, like many other legumes, are a good source of dietary fiber, and a virtually fat-free source of high-quality protein.
Immature seed -They need a lot less cooking than mature seeds and are eaten in a range of ways, such as like peas in soups and, stews etc, or boiled, fried or baked.

Lima beans contain both soluble fiber, which helps regulate blood sugar levels and lowers cholesterol, and insoluble fiber, which aids in the prevention of constipation, digestive disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, and diverticulitis.

The most abundant mineral in the raw lima bean is potassium, followed by calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium, and iron. When lima beans germinate, there is increased calcium and phosphorus, Additionally, it is a good source of vitamin B-6.

The mature seed is dried and stored for future use. A rich source of protein, it must be thoroughly cooked before being eaten Soaking the seeds for about 12 hours prior to cooking easily eliminates the apparent toxicity.
