This was really informative--I love beans and agree they are a good addition to our diets. i had no idea the yukky stuff in a can of beans was soluble fiber and that I was rinsing away this benefit! I am concerned, though, about the amount of added salt in canned beans... for example, a single 1/2 cup serving of canned black beans has 460 mg of sodium--20% of our daily value.
