The kidney bean otherwise called 'the chilli bean' with its dark red skin is named after its visual resemblance to a kidney. The kidney bean is also known as the red bean, although this usage can cause confusion with other red beans. Red kidney beans (rajma in Hindi and Punjabi) are an integral part of the cuisine in northern region of India. Red kidney beans are universally used in New Orleans and much of southern Louisiana for the classic Monday Creole dish of red beans and rice. The smaller, darker red beans are also used, particularly in Louisiana families with a recent Caribbean heritage. Some say they have a smoother taste. Small kidney beans used in La Rioja, Spain, are called Caparrones. Kidney beans are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fibre, as are most other beans. In addition to lowering cholesterol, kidney beans' high fibre content prevents blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal, making these beans an especially good choice for individuals with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia. When combined with whole grains such as rice, kidney beans provide virtually fat-free high quality protein. Kidney beans are an excellent source of the trace mineral, molybdenum, an integral component of the enzyme sulphite oxidase, which is responsible for detoxifying sulphites. Just one cup of cooked kidney beans supplies 177.0% of the daily value for molybdenum. Sulphites are a type of preservative commonly added to prepared foods like delicatessen salads and salad bars. Persons who are sensitive to sulphites in these foods may experience rapid heartbeat, headache or disorientation if sulphites are unwittingly consumed. If you have ever reacted to sulphites, it may be because your molybdenum stores are insufficient to detoxify them.
