July 28, 2016, Leamington, Ont. – Zing! European Runner Bean ready to go the distance.

Zing! Healthy Foods™ Amazing European Runner Beans are not your average bean. They are twice the length and size of a typical green bean, which means double the flavour and double the benefits. Zing! Healthy Foods were first to re-introduce these beans to North America in 2013 and are ready to ship their latest crop.

Foodies can delight in these beans since they’re so versatile, says Jordan Kniaziew, vice-president of sales and marketing.


“They always have a dedicated spot on my BBQ, and I cook them like I would asparagus, with a coating of olive oil, lightly seasoned and dusted with some freshly grated parmesan.”

These beauties pack an enormous amount of health benefits with an impressive list of nutrients “and Vitamin Zing,” says Kniaziew. You’ll feel satisfied about eating these sweet crunchy beans while knowing improving your health and wellness.

In a typical serving, you can also gain 15 per cent of your daily recommended fibre.

The demand for these unique beans has been at an all-time high, so Zing! Healthy Foods is making sure they are available year round.

“You could literally watch the stalks grow. In a short four-week span they have grown well over 12 feet high. Every day I’m amazed when I check the crop. Our team is excited to get these to market and in homes while continuing the momentum we’ve had in North America,” says Kniaziew.


Zing! Healthy Foods is brought to you by Orangeline Farms™, a multiple award-winning boutique grower of specialty greenhouse grown peppers, strawberries and European runner beans. The first-generation family-oriented business operates year-round in Leamington. They are committed to promoting active living and delivering healthy nutritious produce to communities everywhere.
