fava beanare true all-rounders. They have some very positive effects on the agricultural ecosystem and contribute to a favorable climate balance of agriculture. Unlike other plant species, they can actively absorb atmospheric nitrogen and naturally convert it into nutritionally valuable essential amino acids. This reduces the input of artificial fertilizers into the soil, thus reducing emissions of climate-damaging gases and ensuring clean groundwater.
Fava Beans (Broad beans)
The Fava bean is a universal genius
In the field, fava beans in crop rotation improve soil health and performance as well as the quality of the following crop. A positive side effect is that fava beanreduce production costs for farmers by requiring less mineral fertilizer, energy and pesticides. Thus, fava beansimultaneously increase efficiency and reduce resource consumption. In agriculture, they are therefore often used in the form of catch crops as a soil improvement measure.
The fava bean is also a valuable food due to its high protein content and the favorable composition of its amino acids. It is thus ideally suited to competitively replace animal proteins with vegetable proteins in human nutrition. Due to their favorable functional properties, products made from fava beanare an ideal component for a whole range of gluten-free and GMO-free products. Reducing meat consumption, in turn, conserves the world’s natural resources and helps feed a growing global population.

Fun with the product
Complete traceability back to the origin is just as natural for us as permanent quality control at the strictest level – and that in every single production step.
The initial idea for our Premium Fava bean products was born quite in the heart of an important bean growing area right by the coast of the German North Sea.
Close to the sea, our beans ripen in perfect growing conditions, and we constantly stay in touch with the producers. Further processing in Bremen also takes place at the highest level of quality standards.
Through further processing that is highly focused, we are opening up new areas of uses for the field bean.
