White beans are high in potassium and dietary fiber. Just one cup of the beans, also known as cannellini beans, offers more than 1000 mg of potassium, one of the highest concentrations available, although this amount drops a little if the beans are boiled. This low-glycemic legume can also help prevent the storage of energy as fat. Antioxidants and magnesium round out this bean's nutrition profile.
