Is there any difference from canned beans to packaged beans (assuming they are organic)?

Canned are probably loaded with salt..sodium and other additives...most canned foods are....don't have any bean cans at home so cant verify it...but just look at the sodium content on the label and read the ingredients...if it says anything more than "beans"...go for the original.

I just checked, the Publix brand organic black bean contains: organic black bean, water, and sea salt...

it does contain 400mg of sodium for 1/2 c though!

"back to eden" brand sells of organic cans of beans with no salt added.
You could rinse the beans off in water to cut down on the salt.
better to cook the beans up yourself and freeze them.
