Black Beluga Lentils were named for the caviar they resemble and likely originated in Asia. They belong to the legume family.
They are naturally gluten-free and low in sodium.
Lentils are high in protein. When paired with rice, lentils provide a complete vegetarian source of protein.
According to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, a vegetarian-based diet can help reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke by contributing to lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and lower weight.
Black Beluga Lentils are a good source of both soluble and insoluble fiber. A high fiber diet has been shown to reduce cholesterol and blood pressure, improve digestion, help to lower blood sugar levels, and contribute to healthy weight.
Lentils are a good source of iron. Iron is used to make blood and to move oxygen around your body, giving you energy.
Beluga lentils beans contain anthocyanin – an antioxidant that fights free radical damage in your body.
