Beans are rich in protein, and best with only vegetables, not with starch.

I thought baked beans were loaded with sugar in the manufacturing process. Does this alter things

The tin of beans in front of me says Navy Beans. Protein per 100g = 4.9 but carbs = 14.3. So this seems to be a high carb food to me. The beans on there own would be mostly protein I would have thought

Pulses, which are dried peas, dried beans and lentils contain some combination naturally. These need to be eaten with grains in order to complete the amino acid chain and make a complete protein.

Vegetarians who avoid all animal products get their protein by combining grains, beans, lentils, nuts and seeds. The natural combinations such as legumes and grains (peanut butter and bread; split pea soup and bread; rice and red beans; falafel and pita bread) or grains with nuts or seeds (e.g. -- granola with nuts, pasta with pine nuts) provide the necessary protein.

Foods that do not provide a good proportion of all the essential amino acids are called incomplete proteins. Plant foods contain incomplete proteins. Most fruits and vegetable are poor sources of protein. Other plant foods, like baked beans, split peas and lentils, peanuts and other nuts, seeds, and grains like wheat, are better sources. They contribute a lot to our protein intake. However, each type of plant protein is low in one or more of the essential amino acids. This makes it an incomplete protein. Animal proteins contain a better balance of the essential amino acids than plant proteins.

I am having a can of "Four Bean Chili". It tastes great but a bit too much on the chili side.
I am wondering if having a toast of a piece of bread with it would be a good combination. I am always confused when it comes to beans - are they starch/carb or protein.

Thanks very much!

As baked beans appear to be a carbohydrate food (15.3grams carb, 5.2grams protein) does this mean they are ok on a baked potato or wholemeal toast.
