Legumes and Pulses are an affordable easy to prepare and highly nutritious food. They’re a must to keep handy in the pantry. Either a winter dish rich of calories or a fresh summer salad, legumes are one of the traditional flavours of Mediterranean specialities. They are low in fat, contain no cholesterol, so legumes are often considered a healthy substitute for meat (which has more fat and cholesterol).
Val Verde Lentils are sourced from only the most reliable growers in Italy, and selected from only the highest quality crop. They have exceptional nutritional value as they are known as containing one of the highest levels of protein of any plant and are also rich in two essential amino acids. Lentils have no cholesterol, low in sodium and low fat content. Lentils have more folic acid than any other unfortified food. Lentils offer a good protein alternative for vegetarians.
