Quoted from Lloyd
If it does not have a specific rating (cannellini, navy) then white is pretty much white. You don't need to look for something 'special'.



Well, after several weeks of going round and round with this crazy bean we hear from the man that just about any old white bean will do, basically. Okaaaaaaay! My favorite bean so far is the cannellini. Ummmmmm! I suppose anyone can tell that I have never been too much of a bean consumer. Baked beans were more like a novelty to me rather than a serious addition to a meal. So it is hard for me to get serious about the health benefits of eating TONS of BEANS!!!!! And nuts have always been a snack........

Spring, I can get you adzuki beans for cheap.  Would you like for me to mail you a couple of 1 lb. containers?  


That is so nice of you, Ribbit! Head me in the right direction and maybe I can get them where you buy them. Do you use Whole Foods? I'm South of you but not too far. I used to be in Atlanta quite often, but the older I get the less I want to deal with that traffic!

I get them at the DeKalb Farmers Market on Ponce De Leon in Decatur.  I go there every week and would be happy to get you some, or maybe we could meet up there.  That would be fun!  I'll PM you.

I go to Whole Foods occasionally, but I can get almost everything I need at the Farmers Market for a whole lot less.

Hi, I found white Marrow beans on Amazon.  This is the link to the big bag, but if you search for marrow beans there are several different sizes you can order.

Hi.

Here is a post I put on the forums last week

"I get the White beans from a companty in North Carolina, you have to get them by the case, (24)They are $.99 per can,  sclafanifoods.com"

And here is what someone else came back with.

"According to the website you gave these are just" "Great Northern White Beans"

So then the next morning I got this from SteveT at the food club.

"I saw the thread on the forums about white beans.  The website does list the "white beans" we are getting as great northern white beans.  If they are just great northern beans, why are we buying them?"

Steven

So I looked at a can of beans and it said Small White Beans, so I go to the web site and it now said Great Northern Beans.

So I send a email and canceled our order, I called the company and the big boss was out, would call me back, two days later I called again, still out, so I called this morning again and found out they are just Great Northern Beans.

So now do we stop beleving the labels on the cans?

SteveT has found a outlet for the White Beans.


Kathy found these Marrow (White) Beans on Amazon.  They are dry, 50# bag.  Is this the bean that we should be looking for?  The description says they have a taste like bacon.  

So good luck to every body on your white beans.

Larry, I'm still confused  

The white bean is a diamond superfood while cannellini and navy beans are superfoods, go figure

Hi.

The Cannellini, Navy, and Great Northern Beans are members of the Haricot Family of beans, The White bean is a member of the Marrow Family of beans.

Special need for lignans, some of the body measurements (waist to hip ratio, body asymmetrices) show a need to balance out certain hormones(androgens and estrogens) to accomplish this, Certain foods which are high in these important plant antioxidants are the White Bean.

I hope this helps you.

Man, we're still at it about these beans!   One thing for sure, some of these beans that are not diamonds really make me feel good. However, I am glad to know the families these beans belong to - now, if I could just get the Marrows (using their correct name, of course) to move next door where the Haricots live I would be happy!

I'm trying to imagine how a bacon-tasting bean would taste. I don't think I can wrap my brain 'round that one! It has been so long since I tasted any bacon I've forgotten how it tastes. I guess it would be great to season soup with, though. I think I will order ten pounds of these things and just hope I can live through them!

Not sure that I have ever seen them in stores here, will have to keep my eye out for them.

I tried a recipe last night with white Northern Great beans. I had read in a health magazine instead of mashed potatoes cook white beans and make into a mash potatoe substitute. I tried it last night. COoked the beans in a pan, then drained the juice off. Added a little bit of chicken broth, garlic powder, parsley. I mashed with a potatoe masher.They were a little runny but did not taste bad.

This is worth experimenting with again.

I was glad to find this thread last night.  I had purchased "Tuscan White Bean Hummus" from Trader Joe's several days ago because its base was Great Northern Beans and very few avoids for Type O Secretor (Great Northern White Beans, tahini, canola oil, garlic, soy sauce, salt, lemon juice concentrate, citrus fiber, cultured dextrose, olive oil, sun-dried tomatoes, salt, phosphoric acetic, malid acids, parsley, white pepper, paprika).

I bought it to see if I liked the taste - then I could make it for myself without avoids.  I loved the flavors, so I decided to make a batch.

When I went to the health food store to buy beans, they only had "small white beans," so I bought them.  After I began the soaking and cooking process, I began to worry about the term "white beans."  I did a search on Google and found that "white beans" can be referred to as navy beans.  So I read the previous posts here and found I wasn't the only one confused.  I also read the link Lola posted about marrow beans, which clarifies what a white bean is.  I can't call the health food store until tomorrow to find out whether what I bought is a navy bean or a marrow bean.  Such is life.

However, I found a link to a similar recipe (copycat recipe) from California Pizza Kitchens.  I will post it if anyone is interested:  http://www.cdkitchen.com/recipes/recs/512/California_Pizza_Kitchens_Tuscan_Hummus42329.shtml.  I didn't have 30 cloves of garlic on hand so I used the 4 or 5 I had on hand (I like to soft cook them in a little olive oil before adding them to a recipe to take out the bite).  I also added some Real Salt Organic Garlic Salt.  I used wheat-free tamari, and omitted the cumin and coriander.  I tailored the amounts of ingredients called for in the California Pizza Kitchen clone to suite my needs, using only the ingredients listed in the Trader Joe's ingredients.

For the Checca I diced a few sun-dried tomatoes which were in olive oil, mixed in a little dried garlic, and added a little olive oil from the sun-dried tomato jar.  I then poured this over the top of the hummus and dipped in.  I thought it was quite tasty.

I apologize for adding this to the Genotype post - I'm working from my Type O base.  However, if you can eat a white  or Northern bean, you can become wonderfully creative in creating a vegetable dip, I think.

If they are the true White bean you can tell, they look totaly different.

The shape is different then the navy or northern, they are more round, and they are larger.

I think you can buy white beans at Amazon. At least I saw them there about two months ago. I'm still adjusting to beans so I have not tried them yet.

I am almost certain that the "white bean" I bought in the health food store was actually a navy bean.  I puffed up after eating it.

If you look up "white bean" in the Eating Right Typebase, it is also called a "marrow bean."  If Genotype or Eating Right refers to a "white bean," this is what it is referring to - not navy bean.

If you do a search on Google for marrow bean, there are a few places that sell them.  I just bought some online, and yes they do look different from a navy bean - they are fat, white, and round.
