The seed of the plant Canavalia gladiata (Jacq.) DC., of the Leguminosae/Fabaceae family. Sword Bean is probably native to southern Asia or possibly Africa. It is known chiefly as a cultivated species and may have been derived by selection from Canavalia virosa, a wild species occurring principally in Africa.

Sword Bean is cultivated widely in South and Southeast Asia, especially in India, Sri Lanka, and Burma. Sword Bean is a minor vegetable, now spread throughout the humid tropics but grown chiefly for local consumption.

Sword Bean seeds germinate readily. Optimum growth occurs in full sunlight but sword beans are tolerant of some shade. Preferred environmental conditions are found in the humid lowland tropics but these beans may be grown with success in tropical elevations to 1,000 m. Sword Bean thrives in tropical climates exhibiting moderately high temperature (15-30줩 C) environments. Sword Bean is tolerant of a wide range of rainfall conditions (from 700-4,200 mm).

Young green pods are eaten as a cooked vegetable in Asia. Possibilities exist for using this bean species as a source of purified protein and starch concentrates as food supplements or for use in livestock feeds. Sword Bean, like Jack Bean (Canavalia ensiformis), is a source of an enzyme, urease, which has been exploited commercially. Sword Bean is useful as a cover crop and as a green manure. Its use as raw livestock feed is limited by the growth inhibiting substances it contains.

Sword beans are fast growing. The young stem tips and leaves are eaten as a cooked vegetable. Young pods are available 3-4 months after planting. Pick pods when half-grown, 10-15 cm long, before pod swelling occurs.

Also called Japanese Jack Bean, Jack Bean, Knife Bean.

Sweet in flavor, warm in nature, it is related to the channels of the stomach and kidney.

Warms the middle region (spleen and stomach), pushes qi (energy) downward, benefits kidneys, tones yang (male energy).

Sword bean is used for hiccups due to cold and deficiency, vomiting, abdominal swelling, lumbago (lower back pain) due to kidney deficiency, asthma with sputum.

1. For abdominal pain, vomiting, hiccups, etc., due to deficiency of the spleen and stomach:

Boil sword beans with fresh ginger and tangerine peel in water and drink the soup.

2. For lumbago due to deficiency of the kidneys:

Boil sword beans with a couple of pork kidneys in water for one hour. Drink the soup and consume the food.

Dosage and Administration:
Boil in soup, or grind into powder form for topical application. Young pods can be sliced and pickled in soy sauces. The young leaves may be cooked and eaten as a potherb.

Cooked mature seeds have little flavor and a mealy texture, reducing their appeal as a human food source.

Cautions on Use:
Full-size soft green seeds may be eaten cooked although they may contain low amounts of growth-inhibiting substances canavalin and concanavalin A. Ripe seeds require 5-10 months to mature. Mature seeds, or dried seeds that have been in storage, must be cooked thoroughly as they contain toxic protein substances referred above.

Reference Materials:

Toxic or Side Effects:
Mature seeds are toxic and must not be eaten unless they are extensively cooked (3 hours or more recommended) preferably using 2-3 changes of water, and the tough seed coats are removed.

Modern Researches:
Sword bean mainly contains amines, such as canavalmine, guanidinooxypropylamine, spermine, and so on; it also contains thiamin and hemogglutinin. There are also protein, fat, sugar, starch, urease, hemagglutination enzyme, calcium, phosphorus, iron, carotene, vitamin C, etc.

Both the foliage and the seeds contain growth-inhibiting protein substances, canavalin and concanavalin A (Con A) and the amino acid, canavanine. Con A has antibody-like properties and it has been reported to provide a beneficial effect to plants possessing it, providing possible protection to the plants from disease microorganisms. However, Con A binds to mucosal cells lining the human digestive tract reducing the ability of the intestine to absorb nutrients. The concentration of these growth-inhibiting substances increases as the plant tissues age and mature. It is for this reason that human consumption is best limited to only the younger foliage and pods of these beans.

Sword bean also contains gibberellin A-15, a growth-promoting hormone and its leaf meal has been shown to be a good source of pigment for egg yolks but information on its nutritive value is quite sketchy.

The dried beans of sword bean are good sources of protein and starch, 27 percent protein and 42 percent starch respectively, with a good balance of amino acids.

How To

How to make a Hot Tea
Start with fresh, cold water. (The better the water quality, the better the tea will taste.) Place a tea bag in your favorite cup or mug. Bring water to a rolling boil and immediately pour over your tea bag. Steep for a good 3 to 5 minutes. (Great taste can't be rushed—it really does take the full time to release the tea's entire flavor.) Remove the tea bag, relax and enjoy! (Serve it “clear” or try it with milk and sugar.)

Here's a coldwater method for clear, cloudless iced tea
Fill a quart pitcher or container with cold tap water. Cover. Let stand at room temperature or in the refrigerator. Add 4 to 6 tea bags or 1 Family Size tea bag (remove tags). After at least 6 hours (or overnight), remove tea bags, squeezing against side of container. When ready to serve, pour into ice-filled glasses. Makes 1 quart. Recipe may be doubled.

Frequently Asked Questions

A: Generally you boil 20g of tea/herb with 2L. of water. The ratio does not matter. However, it is recommended that you control the
saturation of the tea (how strong it is) depending on your personal
preference and body condition.

A: It depends on the tea/herb.
For leaves: boil for 15~20 min.
For hard fruits, roots, and stems: If you soak the tea/herb in water
for 1~2 hours before boiling, you can save time in boiling, and also
get a deeper flavor than without soaking.

A: Currently, what is listed on the site is what we mostly deal with in
retail stores. However, if there is a certain tea/herb that you wish to
get, you can send an email to info@leafnflower.com. or 844-344-0622.
Then, we may offer a price for obtaining the tea/herb, answer questions, and even offer purchase.

A: Yes, you can combine 5~10g of teas/herbs that you already have with Leafnflower.com's teas/herbs.
Although brewing one tea/herb is still good, combining 2~3 teas/herbs helps bring out
the remedial effects of the tea/herbs better than brewing just one tea/herb. However, most tea/herbs contain natural toxins,
and it is recommended that you boil 1~2 pieces of liquorice root along with the tea/herb to remove the toxin.
