8 Benefits




"Lentils are a great source of protein and go well in soups and stews. However, their beneficial properties are even more apparent when they are soaked before cooking."

"Soaking raw lentils allows for necessary minerals to be more easily absorbed by your body when you eat them."

Increased Mineral Absorption

"When you soak lentils, you decrease the concentration of phytic acids in the lentils you consume..."

Reduced Phytic Acids

Easier to Digest
