This was my first purchase of this brand and I was more than happy. Nice reclosable packaging, clearly printed information on package and the beans tasted great! I will definitely continue to purchase this product.

Excellent quality green lentils! I'll be a regular purchaser!
from J.H.
Great taste and texture. I use these lentils for my vegetable lentil soup. They have good flavor but I especially like that they maintain a good texture during a long cooking process.
from Robin B
Food to love! French lentils are tiny gems of the legume world; they cook in 20 minutes, taste delicious and are a great source of fiber and protein. French lentils are hard to find in my local grocery stores, so I tried ordering the 'Food to Live' brand from Amazon. They arrived quickly, are great quality, and the resealable five pound bag will keep me cooking for months.
