Broad beans or fúl, mudammes is a common staple food in the Egyptian diet. The cooked and mashed beans are mixed with flax seed oil, salt, garlic and cumin and are traditionally eaten with baladi flat bread. Beans are also used in making falafels or tamayya. Beans are considered a good "stomach filling" breakfast, which is enjoyed by all Egyptians. Vendors selling fúl, tamayya and other breakfast items are a common sight all around Egypt in the early morning hours.
Beans are full of protein and energy. Beans also have health benefiting antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and plant-sterols. In addition, beans are a very rich source of dietary fiber which provides 66% per 100 grams of the recommended dietary allowance, which helps in preventing constipation
At Habba Habba, we clean, grade, colour sort and hand pick the beans for street vendors as well as canning factories. We have the ability to procure, process and store the finished goods in cold storage to ensure the colour of the beans remains preserved all through the year.
