When it comes to baked beans, Heinz really are the best. If there is one thing that I really missed when I first moved to Portugal, it was some of the fantastic British foods that you simply cannot get hold of. After searching high and low, I did manage to find the odd shop that sold such items as baked beans, but the prices were astronomical. This is why shopping on Amazon for these items in bulk is such a great idea, especially thanks to the extremely low prices.
This packet of Heinz Baked beans contains 24 tins, each containing 415g. That means that you could have enough beans to last a family for at least a couple of months, without the hassle of having to go out and find a shop that sells them in Portugal, and for a fraction of the price. Multi buying canned foods is a great way to cut your food bills as it works out to be considerably cheaper than buying individual cans of food. Because the shelf life is so long, there is no problem with food going off, so there will never be any waste.
Heinz are renowned for providing extremely tasty baked beans in a rich and flavourful tomato sauce, and the best thing of all is that they are very healthy. They are made with no artificial colourings or preservatives, are gluten free, and are suitable for vegetarians. The ingredient list only contains nine items, all of which are part of a healthy diet. The beans are low in sugar, almost fat free and are full of fibre, making them an excellent addition to your diet if you do not already eat them.
The main portion of the contents consists of 51% beans and 34% tomato, which is a large percentage in comparison to some of the other baked bean manufacturers, who fill up the tins with a large percentage of water. It is the large tomato content that makes the sauce so delicious, and this is the main reason that Heinz has become the recognized leaders in baked bean production. Baked beans can be used in a huge variety of ways, as part of a main dish, as a snack, or as an accompaniment to a meal. There are literally hundreds of fantastic recipes that use baked beans, and they provide a very quick and easy meal solution.
