Adzuki (or aduki, azuki, or asuki) beans are small, dark reddish-brown colored beans that have a thin white strip running the length of their outside edge. Adzuki beans are available whole dried, canned, or ground into powder. They are sweet and nutty in taste and were first popularized throughout the Orient to make either savory or sweet recipes. Adzuki beans are highly nutritious and rank among the legumes that are more easily digestible. Fermented non-GMO soy products such as Miso and Tamari sauce are known to be therapeutic for menopause related symptoms.
