Dry Bean Quarterly

When the Bean Institute needed a more effective way to communicate with dietitians, COMMUNIQUÉ developed the Dry Bean Quarterly (DBQ), a research-based newsletter that features news about the human health benefits of dry beans. Now in it’s eighth year of publication, DBQ goes to 55,000 dietitians across the United States. Recent issues featured articles on “How Bean Fit Into Diet Plans,” “Beans and a Healthy GI Tract,” and “Beans and Children.” In a survey of dietitians who read DBQ, 99% said they are more likely to recommend beans to clients after reading DBQ.
