Healle Organic French Green Lentils 454g  

Saskatchewan is the largest producer of lentils in the world. In Saskatchewan, lentil is best adapted to the Brown and Dark Brown soil zones, but can be grown successfully in the Thin Black soil zone in years without excessive moisture. Our Organic French Green Lentils are growing in this well known soil zone area.

French Green lentils are a variety of green lentils. It is also known as “Puy lentils”. What sets them apart from standard green lentils is that they are small and slightly darker hue olive coloured, have delightfully earthy, peppery flavour and aroma.

 

French Green Lentils benefit

  1. A good source of both soluble and insoluble fiber.
  2. Carbs come in the form of simple and complex. Simple carbs cause a fast spike in blood sugar levels followed by a fast release of insulin. This in turn promotes weight gain. Complex carbs, on the other hand, digest slowly and give you a steady stream of energy. This causes a slow release of insulin. French green lentils have a high amount of complex carbs. One cup serving of dried French green lentils contains about 72 grams. 
  3. A diet high in saturated fat and cholesterol increases cholesterol levels and promotes the build-up of plaque inside the arteries. French green lentils are both fat and cholesterol free.
  4. Iron and Vitamin C - One cup of French green lentils contains 100 percent of the recommended daily intake of iron, and about 16 percent of the daily value of the Vitamin C.
