Fava or Faba beans refer to an annual legume crop botanically known as Vicia faba L. The crop is known by many names, most of which belong to a particular subgroup rather than the whole species. They are best adapted to moist and cooler environments and are not recommended for areas where there is little precipitation or no access to irrigation. They can be cultivated early in the spring, giving farmers the ability to spread the work load during seeding.
Having great standability, fava beans can easily withstand difficult environmental conditions which leads to the ease of harvest. In addition, fava beans can fix more than 90 percent of their own nitrogen requirements, thereby, resulting in lesser requirements of nitrogen fertilizers.
Fava beans are rich in potassium, magnesium, selenium, iron, protein, copper and zinc. They have relatively low fat content with a decent amount of dietary fibre and B-complex vitamins. Besides this, fava beans also help fight various health problems such as Parkinson's disease and dopamine responsive dystonia disorders. They find applications in a number of ready-to-eat food products across segments such as bakery, batter and breading, beverages, meat and snack food industry, etc. One of the major factors augmenting the demand for fava beans is the rising health consciousness among the consumers. Several other factors such as rising population, increasing disposable incomes and a growing demand from developing markets are also fuelling the growth of the global fava beans market. According to a new report by Expert Market Research, the market reached a volume of 4.79 Million Tons in 2016 and is further expected to reach 5 Million Tons by 2022.
