White Beans: Types
The name ‘white beans’ often refers to several species of legumes:

– White navy beans
– White northern beans
– Cannellini beans
All of them are almost the same color and very similar in taste. However, baby lima are the smallest, while cannellini beans are the largest. Our White Navy Beans are approximately pea-sized. When cooked, they become rather creamy and soft, which makes them a good choice for soups and dips.
