Health Benefits of Lentils
The lentil is a legume grown in drier climates to be harvested for its high protein seeds. The lentil seeds are quite inexpensive and frequently added to soups and stews producing a unique earthy flavor. Though small, lentils offer great nutritional benefits like substantial fiber and important mineral content. Easy to cook and prepare, lentils are an essential part of a healthy diet.
Lentils contain high levels of proteins, including the essential amino acids isoleucine and lysine. Apart from a high level of proteins, lentils also contain dietary fiber, folate, vitamin B1, and minerals.
