In my health food store, I found 3 different beans which were all white in color.  White kidney beans, great northern beans and cannellini beans. Are these all considered "white beans"?

Depends on whose definition you use.

For diet purposes, white kidney beans (cannelini) and great northern beans have their own ratings.

Any definition (yours is fine) would be helpful because I'm completely perplexed when I try to find organic white beans in a can.  Are any of those 3 choices I listed the right white bean?

Does this seem like an accurate definition of a white bean?   A "pea" bean?

From that page,  the white bean definition is the common usage. There is an argument that white bean should apply to 'Marrow beans'. The Typebase description is  Phaseolus vulgaris, same as the Wiki page. If the category was listed as marrow bean, that would be simple, but it is listed as 'white bean'. A Dr. D quote leads me to think that white beans (Phaseolus vulgaris) not otherwise spoken for fall into this class.

The gory details are all here: http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?b-GTDdiet/m-1201713718/s-0/

This must be the REAL white bean.

Wow.  That's a lot of beans.  I'm a bean lover and, if not for the baby nursing, would eat beans every single day.  What an exciting link.  I think I'll go look at it again just for fun.

I wonder if we could ask Dr. D to test every single one of those beans.  Maybe we could all go in together and order sample sizes of each kind and send them to Dr. D.
