About our broad beans

Broad beans, also known as fava beans (Vicia faba), have been cultivated in Italy since ancient times. They were a staple food for the ancient Romans and have remained an important ingredient in Italian cooking ever since. Often associated with the spring season in Italy, they are typically harvested in late spring, making them a seasonal delicacy. In some regions, the arrival of fresh broad beans is celebrated with festivals and events.

Broad beans are rich in antioxidants and a good source of protein, dietary fibre, vitamins, and minerals.
