Green Beans, Canned

Canned Green Beans are whole, cut, or sliced lengthwise (French style).

1/2 cup of green beans provides 1 serving from the Vegetable Group of the Food Guide Pyramid.

Green Beans are packed in a 15.5-ounce can, which yields about 2 ½-cup servings after cooking and draining.


    • Store unopened cans in a cool, dry place off the floor.

    • Avoid freezing or exposure to direct sunlight. Sudden changes in temperature shorten shelf life and speed deterioration.

    • Store opened green beans in a tightly covered nonmetallic container and refrigerate. Use within 2 to 4 days.

Serve canned green beans heated, or use in a variety of main dishes, soups, and salads.


    • Canned green beans should be heated only to serving temperature and served soon after heating. Do not boil or overcook.

    • Add flavor to canned green beans by seasoning with herbs and spices, including caraway, dill, or sage.

    • Serve green beans in combination with other vegetables, such as whole kernel corn, red peppers, cauliflower, broccoli, or onions.
