Initially from South and Central America, the lima bean, commonly called butter beans has adapted to live in many different climates around the world. Like many beans, raw butter beans are toxic (containing e.g. phytohaemagglutinin) if not boiled for at least 10 minutes.
Organic Butter Beans
Dried butter beans require soaking before they can be cooked. Soak the beans in cool water for a minimum of five hours and as long as eight hours or overnight. Ensure that the beans are fully submerged. The longer they soak, the softer and creamier they’ll be. Do not use the soaking liquid to cook the beans, as sugars — which produce gas when consumed — are released by the beans into the liquid.

about the brand
At Infinity, providing an extensive range of high quality vegetarian foods is what they do and this has been their commitment from the outset.
As a worker’s co-operative, they are a business run by, and for, their workers. They practice an equitable form of business that is not solely driven by profit margins. They believe that it is their responsibility to provide food that is as far as possible, natural and unadulterated, free from GM and hydrogenated fat, organic accredited and sourced from companies with high ethical standards.
As well as trading and building relations with producers and suppliers in developing countries, they are equally as committed to sourcing as much as possible locally. They aim for a fair and just business practice with all of their trading partners, suppliers and producers and in turn, their customers.
They also recycle our own-generated glass, cans, plastic, ‘Tetra-pak and cardboard waste. The boxes used to pack Infinity Foods own brand products are, wherever possible, collected from their customers and used time and time again.
Their beliefs do not sit at the peripheries of our business; they are and have been pivotal to their ethos for over 35 years. This is their bottom line and what motivates them both in the here and now and in the long-term.
