I just want to check out if I have this right, but are haricot beans just small white beans?  I looked
on Wikipedia, and it said they were common white beans, and also called them navy beans....

never heard of navy beans? very popular down here. look alot like northern beans but smaller and they have a black (navy) dot were the bean was pulled from the pod. taste is some were between northern and black eyed pea. get um in every place that sells beans. haricot is just a fancy name like chick peas being called garbonzo beans.


nothing to do? who has that!?

Navy beans are a black dot for me but hericot beans are beneficial, so I don't think they are the same under SWAMI.

Drea,
That is why I asked the question.  I know that cannellini's are ok, or white kidney beans.  But I guess I don't know what haricots are.  I know what black eyed peas are....I also can easily get great northern beans....but for haricots, I bought a bag
of "white beans".....they are smallish, and white?  I read through some of the threads that already discussed this topic, and I still don't know if navy and haricots are the same....

For the purposes of SWAMI/GTD , I treat a white bean that is not otherwise listed (Navy, Great Northern, etc) as haricot/white bean. If it is listed, I use the listed rating and not 'haricot'.

That makes sense, Lloyd, but I think what Paula and I are unclear about is how to distinguish a hericot bean from any other small white bean, especially if there is no clear labeling (bulk comes to mind).

Haricot beans in the net are italian borlotti beams white and rose, they become copper light brown cooked like pinto beans that I can't find in Italy. They were avoid in BTD for a lot of cases and now they are beneficial or auperfood for a lot of GT.

Haricot beans are those thin, tender green beans favored by the french.
Now, ...they may also be the white bean that comes from it.

Be careful about navy vs. northerns. They are very different. Navies are an avoid, while northerns are beneficial for me. I do not do well with navies! (However for my AB husband, they are like a medicine. He feels so good when he has them.)  I now remember that my dad, also an O, cooked navy beans a lot when he ate beans. He ate such a good diet from outward appearances(lots of baked fish, greens, etc.), but loved some O avoids that I see did him in, especially oranges!

Re white kidney beans - are they avoids too, if red kidney beans are? They don't seem to be listed in Typebase...
Looks like Kidney beans that are white in color are known as cannellini beans or at least related to them? Is that right?

Good question Possum. It's so confusing with all those names!!!

Now you got me intrigued. I just found out that haricot beans are a black dot for me, but I have been eating haricot vert every week!  

I suppose if haricot beans are a black dot, then the beans with the pods would also be a black dot?

Oh so sad! Haricots verts are the only beans I eat now... so easy to cook and tastes so great, even cold in salads.

Actually I just googled the term & Haricot vert is French for green beans...So are yours the pods that contain the actual haricot bean or is it just a generalised term for the green beans?

Well there you go eh
Btw another definition gave "immature bean pod eaten as a vegetable" so it is very likely that they would not have the same properties as the haricot itself?!
So enjoy!!

Yes, "haricot" is the French word for "bean". Haricots verts are those lovely long skinny green beans. So, if the bean is simply called "haricot" it could really be pretty much any type of bean. If possible, you may be able to check at the store or online site to see what other names that particular bean is called (but, I do realize that's what you're asking). It's frustrating because there are so many different kinds of beans available and I want to taste them all, but don't know which ones are good or bad for me.

I am nearly 100% sure that the SWAMI calls the green french beans 'hericot' and the white bean 'seed' 'navy beans'.
In some countries the 'seed' is called 'hericot', hence the confusion.
To make it easy...navy beans are the beans in your Heinz baked beans tin.

Hope that helps : )

It is quite confusing...

If in doubt, I don't buy them. Pretty much, the only beans I buy are kidney beans (for DS), black beans (for us 3 Os), great northern beans (for all of us) and, now lentils (just for me, now that my nonniness is confirmed.) I also have some dried split peas in the house, but the kids don't really like them so I don't use them often.

I often compare prices on two different brands of dry beans before deciding which brand to buy. Usually,, one will have a bag that's labeled "navy beans" while the other has a package of apparently identical beans labeled "small white beans."  I don't trust that those "small white beans" aren't acctually "navy beans" so I don't buy them. I stick with the bean names I can confirm.

Now, if the Farmer's market had a lot of fresh beans to choose from, I'd be much more tempted to buy them and I'd want to figure it all out.

According to typebase:

Quoted from Cannellini beans
Large, white Italian kidney beans, available both in dry and canned forms. Cannellini beans are particularly popular in salads and soups.
