Why Water Lentils?

Fresh from the source, water lentils are protein powerhouses in a balanced diet.

Water lentils improve human health

An excellent source of digestible protein, vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients, water lentils provide bioavailable nutrition for maximum benefit.

They positively impact the environment

Water lentils are a sustainable source of plant-based protein. Using no arable land, water lentils yield 10x more protein per hectare than soy while using substantially less water.

Their stable supply limits price volatility

Year-round growth allows for daily harvests, stable extraction volumes, and predictable supply.

They are a clean and traceable food source

Our water lentil cultivation and extraction processes require no pesticides, hexane, or other chemicals. Our sourcing is highly traceable through our integrated value chain and the resulting ingredients are non-GMO and free from common allergens.
