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.

Description:

Our yellow lentils are carefully peeled for a milder taste and shorter cooking times. Peeling makes them easier to digest. Yellow lentils are soft after cooking and disintegrate if cooked for longer. Softened lentils are a popular ingredient in spreads and Indian dahls.

Origin and Production:

We purchase our organic yellow 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.


Product purity:

After harvesting, our organic lentils are cleaned several times, ensuring high purity. The outer skin is then peeled off the yellow lentils. The lentils are given our standard pressure treatment and they are laser cleaned. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests. When undergoing several rounds of cleansing in the laser cleaning facility afterwards, the organic lentils are checked individually.
