Did you know that pinto beans contain antioxidants called polyphenols, which may prevent certain types of cancer? Pinto beans also contain a flavanoid (kaempferol) that's known to reduce inflammation. These beneficial phytonutrients appear to slow the growth of tumors and increase the survival rate of healthy cells.
Also, the fiber content of beans may contribute to the reduction in risk of breast cancer seen in women who eat more legumes.
Not only that, but many eaters of WellBean have sheepishly admitted that "things flowed better" and "the pipes ran more smoothly" after eating just one of our bean-based bars.

Sometimes the bars are part of my breakfast or lunch. Satisfying. Keep some in my sewing room so I can keep on working. The usual snack bars from the grocery store are no longer on my list. I’m totally won over; glad there is such a variety!
