BEANS, DRIED

Dried bean types include pinto beans, black beans, navy beans, great northern beans, pink beans and kidney beans.

In 2009 North Dakota produced about 34% of the dry edible beans in the U.S. (US Census Bureau, 2010)

The United States is by far the world leader in dry bean production. Each year, U.S. farmers plant from 1.5 to 1.7 million acres of edible dry beans. And while Americans are the chief consumers of these beans, 40 percent are shipped to international markets in more than 100 different countries around the globe.

‘The Anatomy of Melancholy’ by Robert Burton (1621) listed 64 remedies for gas produced from eating beans.
