Dried Navy beans are similar to Great Northern beans, but are much smaller. They are sometimes called "pea" beans because they are similar in size to peas, but they are more oval than spherical. The #10 can holds approximately 5.75 pounds/12 cups of navy beans.
Be prepared and have your food storage on hand!
Each #10 can is sealed with an oxygen absorber. If stored in a cool, dry place, beans should last 10+ years. In an emergency situation, boiling the beans in water for 20 minutes will kill any bacteria and will still give you some nutrition.
