What are Fava Beans?

Vicia faba, widely recognised as the broad bean, faba bean, or fava bean, belongs to the flowering plant family Fabaceae. Its cultivation and consumption dates back to 10,000 years ago in the Middle East and subsequently expanded across Europe and the rest of the world. However, following the Blair-House agreement in 1992, fava bean farming in Europe experienced a decline, prompting increased imports of plant protein, primarily soy protein.

Recently, there has been a resurgence of interest in fava beans due to their minimal environmental impact and favourable protein characteristics. These include a neutral taste, functional properties, and nutritional benefits, positioning them as an alternative in the face of growing awareness of sustainable and nutritious food alternatives.
