MMO’s Curried Lentil Soup Kit is delicious and healthy with a modest curry flavor.  The high quality French Green Lentils that we use have a peppery flavor and remain firm after cooking unlike most other lentils.  Lentils contain the highest amount of protein originating from any plant. The amount of protein found in lentils is up to 35%, which is comparable to red meat, poultry, fish, and dairy products. Lentils contain carbohydrates (15-25 grams per 100 grams). They are a good source of dietary fiber and also have a low amount of calories. Other nutritious components found are molybdenum, folate, tryptophan, phosphorous, and potassium.  Lentils are a good source of phytochemicals and phenols.

Don’t short yourself on nutrition!   Traditional cultures took great care to prepare their legumes (beans, peas, and lentils) with a long soak before cooking to enhance digestibility and nutrient absorption.   We know today that biologically an extended soak brings the seeds out of quiescence (sleep) causing them to begin the transformation from seed to plant (sprouting).   This is important for our nutrition since during this transformation tightly bound nutrients are released and converted to higher level nutrients.  So soaking the beans for an extended time as suggested in our instruction significantly increases both the availability of the nutrients and the their quality.    Additionally, an extended soaking removes nearly all of the phytic acid contained in the beans.  Phytic acid is an anti-nutrient that blocks the uptake of nutrients by our bodies, so getting rid of it by rinsing after a prolonged soak is very desirable.  Additionally, phytic acid is a serious irritant for our digestive tracts .  Beans that are not extensively soaked and well rinsed before cooking can cause significant gastric disruption due to the phytic acid, insolubles, and gas-producing oligosaccharides.  Avoid chlorinated water when soaking as this causes the seeds bran outer layer to “petrify” which may slow or prevent softening.
