Most beans are suspect.  If not listed, consider it neutral until the information comes forward.

Quoted from Tom Martens
Most beans are suspect.


Anything not listed should, per Dr. D'Adamo, be considered Neutral.
I've never heard of Roman beans - give them a try.

As an A, you thrive on beans.
If you are a secretor, there are just a few to avoid: Garbanzo, Kidney, Lima, Navy, and Red. If you follow Tier Two: Avoid tamarind, too. According to the list in Live Right 4 Your Type, that leaves 17 other beans as Beneficials and 7 as Neutrals.
If you are a non-secretor, only four of those five "Avoid" beans are to be avoided (i.e., navies are okay).

IMO, "suspecting" neutral foods is Fear.
If that's an option for you, so be it.  
Feel free to tell us about these "Roman" beans, however.

The reason to be suspicious of beans is because they tend to have more lectins that are problematic than other food varieties.

For that reason I also would rather avoid a bean that is not listed per diet rather than assume it is neutral, especially if there are other choices available.


As always, the user is the final arbiter.

According to Wikipedia:

The Borlotti bean, also known as the Roman bean or romano bean (not to be confused with the Italian flat bean, a green bean also called "romano bean"), is a variety of cranberry bean bred in Italy to have a thicker skin. It is used in Italian, Portuguese and Greek cuisine.

Kevin, are you looking at a dry bean, or a string bean?

From Wiki:

The Borlotti bean, also known as the Roman bean or romano bean (not to be confused with the Italian flat bean, a green bean also called "romano bean"), is a variety of cranberry bean bred in Italy to have a thicker skin. It is used in Italian, Portuguese and Greek cuisine.

I've been wondering about Borlotti beans. They are becoming popular around here.
