Drain or not drain canned cannellini beans?

I’m in the process of making some soup and will use a couple of cans on cannellini beans. One can says for their (different than mine) soup recipe on the back of their label, to not drain the beans.


I’m in the habit of draining that thickened (a bit) gooey liquid, sometimes even rinsing the canned beans in cold water.


What do cooks here suggest? Does that liquid add anything? Thanks.
