Lentil

The lentils (Lens culinaris) are a type of pulse, with one seedpod containing two or three peas. Lentil needs a subtropical or tropical climate with more than 700-1100 millimeters of annual rain. Amhara, Oromia, Tigray and Southern regions of Ethiopia are well known by lentils seeds production.

Nutritional value and health benefits are the following: energy, carbohydrates, sugars, dietary fiber, fat, protein, vitamins ( thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), Niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), vitamin B6, Folate B9 and trace metals ( calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, zinc) and water.

With about 30% of their calories from protein, lentils have the third-highest level of protein, by weight, of any legume or nut, after soybeans and hemp. Proteins include the essential amino acids isoleucine and lysine, and lentils are an essential source of inexpensive protein in many parts of the world. Lentils are deficient in two essential amino acids, methionine and cysteine. However, sprouted lentils contain sufficient levels of all essential amino acids, including methionine and cysteine.

Lentils also contain dietary fiber, folate, vitamin B1, and minerals. Red (or pink) lentils contain a lower concentration of fiber than green lentils (11% rather than 31%). Lentils are also a good source of iron, having over half of a person's daily iron allowance in a one cup serving
