Confused about lentils nutrition data.

Recommended Posts

First thing to do is to make sure you are comparing equal portions.


There could be many possible reasons for a discrepency


- different equipment used by different groups to take the meaurements


- different samples grown in a different qualities of soil giving the samples different nutrition.

100g portions were compared.


Dry lentils contain 26g of protein per 100g portion and double in weight when soaked, 13 grams of protein per 100g portion?


Is the protein lost when cooked?


Is there a difference between small and large lentils?


How to tell if lentils are undercooked?


What are they canned in?

The ingredients or the type of can?


Ingredients are lentils, water, salt and ascorbic acid.


What do I need to look out for?
