French beans are one of the most consumed vegetables in Romania, especially during fasting periods, but also worldwide, knowing that it has an important nutritional value. Due to its high protein content, many people who want to adopt an animal protein-free diet resort to eating bean-based foods. In the present study, four french bean genotypes were analyzed that showed differences in color, seed size and weight, but most importantly in taste. From these, a control variety was chosen that presented white seeds, more precisely the 'Doina’ variety, a variety approved by VRDS Buzau in 2020. Tastings were carried out followed by the completion of opinion polls, which found that the genotype preferred by consumers was the L3 genotype, a genotype that presents seed of red color. The purpose of this article was to find out if consumers are open to eating beans of a different color than the classic white.
