Our organic green lentils are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber. Not only do lentils help lower cholesterol, they help managing blood-sugar disorders since their high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising rapidly after a meal.

Green lentils do not require any soaking and can be cooked right away. A 3/4 cup of cooked lentils provides more potassium than a large banana along with 13 grams of protein. Lentils also contain more folate than any other plant food.

 

What is the difference between our regular green lentils and the gluten-free version?

  • To start all lentils are gluten-free. The difference between all the forms of lentils that we sell and the green lentils (Gluten-Free) is simply the extra level of precautions from cross-contamination. Unless you are extremely intolerant to gluten you will never notice the difference.
  • That is because although lentils themselves don't contain gluten, they're often grown alongside other crops. The same equipment is typically used to harvest crops in neighboring fields, which leads a possibility of cross-contamination if one of those crops contains gluten.
  • The gluten-free version is grown in isolated fields and the harvesting equipment is dedicated to those crops making for a much more expensive product in exchange for the guarantee of no cross contamination.

 

OnlineOrganics Made in Canada

Locally grown in Canada, buying our organic green lentils encourages local farmers and reduces pollution from long-distance transportation.



Storage Tips:

  • Nothing beats vacuum sealing for freshness.
  • Store below 15°C and < 65% humidity.
  • Store in the dark as light degrades flavors.
  • Mason jars make great storage containers.
  • Can be frozen to prolong shelf life.
