Adzuki beans are small, reddish-brown, and have a sweet nutty flavor. They're renowned for their nutritional qualities, and are popular in Japanese cooking for dishes including yokan, made with adzuki-bean paste. Triple-cleaned and perfect for baking & cooking purposes.
Convenient & safe storage: Our Organic Adzuki beans come in six-gallon buckets (or pails... another word for the same container), containing 43 lbs. net weight. When you store Adzuki beans at home, they need to be protected in a couple of ways. First, they need to be protected from a variety of little critters who'd like to get to them before you do. Weevils and rodents, for example. You also need to protect your Adzuki beans from picking up excessive additional moisture, which can be drawn from the atmosphere. The buckets our Adzuki beans come in provide full protection against these storage risks. They have airtight gasket-sealed lids, Mylar liners, and oxygen absorber packets that remove the oxygen from the air in the bucket after we put the lid on. The O2 absorbers leave an atmosphere of nitrogen in the bucket, because air consists almost entirely of oxygen and nitrogen. (The oxygen absorber packets themselves are completely food-safe, being made of powdered iron and salt, which are kept separate from the product itself.) Our buckets safely lock out pests, and biological processes are put "on hold" in the Mylar protected, oxygen-free nitrogen atmosphere, so your Adzuki beans enjoy complete peace and quiet until you want to use them.
Super-cleaned: All of our Organic Adzuki Beans are triple-cleaned to ensure purity and protect your grain mill from any foreign objects. (Adzuki beans that aren't sufficiently cleaned may contain small stones that will damage or destroy a grain mill... not to mention that you don't want such things in your food!)
Non-GMO: All of Pleasant Hill Grain's whole food products are natural (non-GMO).
