Jack’s Quality Low Sodium, Organic Butter Beans

Butter beans, also known as Lima beans, are known for their starchy and buttery texture. Butter beans go well with almost any dish because of their starchy, buttery texture. Aside from the more well-known benefits such as fiber and protein, butter beans carry the trace mineral, molybdenum, which is responsible for detoxifying sulfites in the body.
