Also known as the string bean, snap bean, or ejotes, green beans are the unripe fruit of the common bean.
They are grown all around the world and are sold canned, frozen, and fresh.
They are often steamed, boiled, baked or stir fried, not to mention put in casseroles at Thanksgiving.
So can rabbits eat green beans at all?
Let’s take a look at their nutritional data, in particular their acidic content, calcium, phosphorus, sugar, fat, fiber and water content is of particular interest as far as rabbits are concerned.
As you can see green beans contain quite a bit of phosphorus, a little calcium, and are quite acidic.
This means that green beans are not good for rabbits to eat unfortunately, as they are quite sugary and gassy for rabbits to handle and wont do them any good to eat.
They are unfortunately a food to avoid feeding to rabbits.
