  1. Thanks for the post, I was thinking that maybe I should be choosing Pinto – mostly because I always choose Black. Therefore they must be worse for me, right?

    I’d like to mention though that as non-animal products they both have zero cholesterol. You mention that black beans have “low levels of cholesterol”. Well that’s true, since zero is low. But they both have zero. (Cholesterol is a substance made only by animals and therefore not in any non-animal product.)

  2. So black beans taste better and are more nutritious. I don’t know why they offer pinto beans at all.

  3. Article only needed to be one sentence: black beans taste like chalky crap, pinto beans are great.

  4. “In comparison to pinto beans, black beans are higher in protein and also come with low levels of cholesterol”

    No beans contain cholesterol, ever. Only foods sourced from animals contain cholesterol.
