Sprouted lentils are celebrated for being a powerhouse of nutrition. Known for their impressive protein content, these sprouts and also come loaded with vitamins C and B, and essential minerals like iron and magnesium. The richness in fibre aids in promoting digestive well-being, making them an excellent addition to a balanced diet.

Dry lentils are second only in antioxidant content among legumes, and sprouting them doubles this value, with red lentils leading in nutritional benefits. Rich in protein, iron, zinc, and folate, lentils also contain phytates. The “lentil effect” suggests they may aid glycemic control, benefiting diabetics and those aiming for weight management. Sprouting reduces the antinutrient phytic acid, enhancing nutrient absorption, and remarkably boosts vitamin C content by over 400%, from 5% to 21% RDA, contributing to collagen production and anti-aging effects.

    Great quality lentils, with a high germination rate. A small amount go a long way. They have a fresh nutty flavour and add taste and texture to any meal. I quite often grow them together with the green lentils. They are packed full of fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals. I would definitely recommend them.

  2. Andrea Broadribb (Verified Buyer)

    Someone said try sprouting lentils , they make top sprouts! Look forward to trying them!

  3. Sara Hook (Verified Buyer)

    Great flavour & crunch. Looking forward to my second batch

  4. Fiona Lansley (Verified Buyer)

    Sprouted well and are really tasty!

  5. Stephen Westgarth (Verified Buyer)

    Delicious. These end up like fresh little pea shoots. Super sweet, unique and well worth it.

    So easy to sprout and so delicious. I have them in a salad of sprouted alfalfa and fenugreek seeds, with goats cheese, garlic croutons and sliced saucisson sec. Tarragon white wine vinegar and olive oil dressing. Excellent.
