People have been enjoying nutritional lentils benefits for millennia as it’s a proven fact that they’ve been included in our ancestors’ diet as far back as 13000 years. Lentils are a type of legume, which is easy to cook and contains a lot of protein and minerals. It’s an excellent food for everyone as lentils are gluten-free and are safe to eat even for babies. Organic Red Split Lentils from Food To Live are of top-quality and free from dangerous contaminants and toxic additives.

Lentils Nutrition: Dietary Fiber, Protein & Carbs

One of the most significant lentils benefits is their high nutritional value as opposed to low-calorie count. These legumes contain about 20 grams of carbs in a ½ cup of cooked seeds, but they are offset by 8 grams of dietary fiber, which slows down their absorption. Therefore, you can include lentils in a low-carb diet.

The lentils protein content is also an important benefit of this food as it’s the richest source of amino acids among legumes. They are great for vegans, vegetarians, bodybuilders, and everyone else who wants to get more protein without consuming many calories and fats. You’ll need to eat lentils and rice (brown) to “complete” amino acid chains as all plant proteins are ‘incomplete.’ However, they are easier to digest than meat.

Various health organizations advise consuming 1-2 servings of legumes per day as this helps promote the health of your cardiovascular and digestive systems. Lentils, in particular, are one of the best choices as they are low in calories and high in nutrients. There are many types of lentils, including, beluga, puy, yellow, green, and red. They differ a little in flavor and firmness when cooked, but their nutritional value is almost the same.

How to Cook Organic Red Split Lentils

Lentils don’t require pre-soaking so that you can cook them very fast. It’s what gives them a significant advantage over other legumes.

Cook rinsed lentils in broth or water using about 3 cups of liquid per every cup of lentil beans. Bring to a boil, cover the pan, and let simmer until they are tender. Add salt at the very end.

As lentils have a mild flavor, they can be included in almost any type of dish. The best ways to enjoy them is to make:

  • lentil soup – filling and low in fats
  • lentil curry – a perfect complement for rice
  • lentils stew – tastes great with any spices and vegetables
  • lentil chili – low-fat & low-calorie alternative to regular chili

You can also make your lentil flour, which is gluten-free and very nutritious. Use it to make lentil crackers, cookies, or add it to protein shakes. Be sure to try some lentil pasta as well, because it’s delicious and much healthier than wheat.

If you are into sprouting, buy whole seeds to grow lentil sprouts and add them to salads, sandwiches, stews, and green smoothies.

Absolutely delicious! I bought these to compare the difference between conventionally grown red lentils and organically grown red lentils - both grown in Turkey. The difference in flavor and color is amazing! The conventional red lentils have an artificial bright reddish/orange color and flavor is ok but seems to be enhanced by additional preservatives. By comparison, this organic brand has a clean, flavorful taste that melts in your mouth and color is definitely not chemically enhanced. Turkish red lentil soup (when made correctly) is addictive but very healthy for you! I could eat this everyday. Plus a small amount of dried lentils goes a long way when cooked. The package has a generous amount! Thank you Foods To Live! Will order again.

Good product that I highly recommend. Have used these for years in my vegan lentil soup. Great product and adds flavor and protein to a vegan dish.
Great quality! This a great quality product. I've repurchased it and i will continue on purchasing. I like the convenience of buying a bigger quantity and having it delivered to my house. It's always safely and securely packed. I definitely recommend it.
Will buy again. I love these lentils. There is description of how the lentils cook up and it was excellent, no surprises just as described. I added after they were finished cooking, a pinch of salt and cayenne pepper. With a few crackers and salad I had a light meal in no time. I saw questions on several types of beans in several different brands and decided I well never buy beans that are not organic. Whether beans are sprayed with Roundup is important to me. I will stick with this brand.

Sprouted quickly! As a raw vegan trying to find easily sproutable beans etc can be a challenge. Food to live did not disappoint. Sprouted quickly in my mason jars, very fresh looking and tasting. Definitely would buy again!
