What is this flour?
Lentil flour is a product obtained by grinding the grains of whole, raw lentils into a very fine powder. It is a totally unprocessed flour, which ensures that it keeps its nutritional richness intact. In addition, its consumption can favor the assimilation of certain nutrients, so that all the properties and authentic flavor of the grain are preserved in its original state.
It is a very versatile ingredient, thanks to its binding and thickening properties and is used in a variety of dishes around the world, from bread, pasta and crepes to soups and stews.
Why should you consider lentil flour?
In addition to its use in the kitchen, lentil flour is highly valued for its high nutritional content. It’s rich in protein (two to three times more than some grains), dietary fiber, vitamins (A, E, and B), and essential minerals like iron, magnesium, copper, phosphorus, selenium, and zinc, making it a great option for people looking for nutritious and healthy food. In addition, it is naturally gluten-free, making it a safe choice for those suffering from celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.
