Azure Lentils, Red, Organic

The health benefits of lentils and other legumes are well documented. Many long-term studies have shown that they protect your heart, stabilize your blood sugar, guard against colon cancer and provide an important source of vitamins, minerals, protein and fiber.

When you compare the facts about fiber content in foods, legumes lead the way. Men need at least 30 to 38g of fiber each day. Women need at least 20 to 25g. One cup of cooked lentils provides more than 15 grams of dietary fiber. They’re also a leading source of folate and magnesium which are proven to be beneficial to heart health.

Lentils are an excellent source of molybdenum, copper, phosphorus, and manganese. Additionally they are a good source of iron, vitamin B1, pantothenic acid, zinc, potassium, and vitamin B6.
