Dear Brad
Canned beans are an excellent food being rich in plant protein, vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre. In addition they are low in fat and have a low-GI which is always beneficial. As there are so many different brands on the market, I would suggest that you compare the salt and sugar contents of the products in the supermarket where you do your shopping. The small quantity of sugar that is added to canned beans should really not be a problem. Otherwise you will have to cook dry beans and make your own tomato sauce from fresh tomatoes excluding salt and sugar.
