Lentils are rich in fibre, minerals, proteins and vitamins. The fibre lowers blood cholesterol levels and reduces heart diseases. It helps those with diabetes and hyperglycaemia by stabilizing their blood glucose levels.
An important mineral in lentil is the Iron; it helps with transporting oxygen throughout the body, which helps with increasing energy and metabolism.
Lentils are designated into two classes, Red Lentils and Lentils other than red. The method of determining the class of a lentil is by seed coat colour. Red lentils may be confirmed by the cotyledon colour.
Lentil varieties may have a wide range of seed coat colours from green, red, speckled green, black and tan. The cotyledon colour may be red, yellow or green.
