    Black Soybeans, known as Douchi or black beans can be used to make fermented and salted black soybeans – a popular condiment in Chinese cuisine. The black soybean is one of the most popular flavourings in China, where it is most widely used for making black bean sauce dishes. Douchi is made by fermenting and salting black soybeans which gives the beans a salty taste with the goodness of a regular soybean.

    Black soybeans should not be confused with the black turtle bean – a variety of bean that is commonly used in Central and South America in dishes such as burritos. Although they look similar, soybeans have a small white line on the bean whereas the turtle bean has a small white dot on the bean.
