Organic French Green Lentils

Organic French Green Lentils (Lens esculenta) are a rare and highly sought-after variety of lentils that are firm and exceptionally good at holding their shape. They have a deep green color with subtle, beautifully mottled patterns and a robust, peppery flavor. Often regarded as the most desirable and delicate of the lentils, they originated in the volcanic soils of the Puy region of France, and are now often grown in North America and Italy as well.

Possible certifications

 Originally from Spain’s Pyrenees region, this lentil is mild in flavor so it is often paired with more assertive flavors in European and Asian cuisines. 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.

Industrial uses

Organic French Green Lentils can be used as an ingredient for salads, salads, stews and more… The most general application is to fill them in pouches for retail.
