Bean and Pulses

Beans and pulses have significant amounts of fiber and soluble fiber, with one cup of cooked beans providing between nine to 13 grams of fiber. Soluble fiber can help lower blood cholesterol and keep blood sugar levels stable in people with diabetes. Beans contain complex carbohydrates, folate and iron and are a good source of protein.
