Organic Black Beluga Lentils

Organic Black Beluga Lentils, or “Lens esculenta,” are a rare and sought-after variety of lentils, averaging about half the size and a bit rounder than the standard type. Their natural ebony color makes them striking in appearance, and they also have high nutritional value. With an average of 24% protein, Black Beluga Lentils are believed to have the highest protein content of all lentil varieties. They are ideal for use where a high-contrast lentil with sturdy structure is desired, such as in salads, as a stuffing for vegetables or as a topping for hors d’oeuvres.

Possible certifications

Unlike their cousin, the bean, lentils do not need to be soaked and therefore are much faster to cook. They are often paired with grains or rice to provide a complete protein. In addition to high protein and fiber content, the lentil is also packed with iron, zinc, potassium and magnesium.
