Baked beans aren’t necessarily unhealthy — in fact, they’re usually high in protein and fiber — but the canned variety typically adds in sugar, salt and other additives.

Just look at Bush’s Original Baked Beans, seasoned with bacon and brown sugar. One serving, or half a cup of beans, has 7 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber, but also 570 milligrams of sodium and 11 grams of sugar.

Healthline also mentions that many bean cans contain the chemical bisphenol A (BPA) in their interior lining, which can potentially leach into your food. Some research suggests BPA can elevate your obesity risk and even reduce fertility.
