Vital substances:
Lentils are indispensable as part of a balanced diet, and they score 6 healthy points [1 and 2]!

1.-Lentils are a valuable source of protein, since they contain all 8 essential amino acids.
2.-Lentils are rich in fibre and stimulate the digestion.
3.-Lentils are packed with B vitamins and fortify the nerves.
4.-Lentils are rich in iron, magnesium, zinc and folic acid.
5.-Lentils have a low glycaemic index.
6.-Lentils have a very high antioxidant capacity of 7282 µmol TE (ORAC value = Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity).

The body’s defence mechanisms are strengthened by foods rich in antioxidants, and this helps to neutralise excessive production of free radicals. The recommended ORAC daily requirement is between 5000 and 7000 [3].

Description:
Celtic lentils are an old variety that our company and local farmers are starting to cultivate and market again. Our northern ancestors greatly prized these lentils, as they keep for a long time and are relatively easy to look after. In former days, hunters who returned home without a kill could look forward to a meal of nutritious lentils. Celtic lentils are brown, unpeeled and remain firm after cooking.

Like all lentils, they can be used in a variety of ways and are a good choice for many hearty lentil dishes. They have a very agreeable strong taste.

Origin and Production:
We purchase our organic Celtic lentils exclusively from Austrian organic farmers. The organic lentils are cultivated and harvested with the greatest care, in compliance with criteria on organic agriculture.

It’s easy to see why Austrian lentils have so much to offer you! Short transport routes reducing C02 emissions, zero genetic modification, promotion and appreciation of domestic and regional products, support for Austrian farms and their work, as well as helping to sustain natural diversity.

The purity of our lentils are guaranteed by strict quality standards and the very close ties that we have to our farmers!

Customers and consumers can be sure that the product delivers on its promises.
