Canned baked beans contain high levels of zinc, an essential mineral that promotes sexual health by regulating testosterone levels, boosting libido, and improving heart health. Zinc also enhances taste and smell reception. Just ½ cup of baked beans provides 26% of the daily recommended intake of zinc. While it's not clear if aphrodisiacs truly have a significant effect, incorporating baked beans into different dishes can add flavor. Other foods believed to be aphrodisiacs include asparagus, salmon, beets, avocados, artichokes, figs, honey, and coffee.
