Abstract

Common beans (Phaseolus vulgaris) are a strategic food resource in many countries. They provide protein, vitamins and minerals, dietary fiber and other essential nutrients. Phytochemicals with nutraceutical activity in wild, weedy and cultivated genotypes include phenolic compounds, some of them providing color to the seeds. In view of their biodiversity, current efforts towards the identification of valuable wild and weedy genotypes will promote their conservation and rational utilization. © 2007 American Chemical Society.
