The protein content levels of lentil seeds range from 22-35%, making it the third highest plant based food after soy and hemp. Lentils are an excellent source of molybdenum and folate. They are a very good source of dietary fiber and manganese, phosphorus, copper, thiamin and potassium. Sprouted lentils contain sufficient levels of all essential amino acids and are one of the best vegetable sources of iron.
Suggested Use: Soak 1 cup of Red Lentil Sprouting Seed in filtered water for 8 to 12 hours. Then rinse thoroughly and drain well.
