What are the advantages of using pre-cooked, dehyrdrated red lentils?
Pre-cooking beans and pulses dramatically reduces their final cooking time. The dehydration process increases the shelf life of the red lentils, while preserving their organoleptic properties.
What yield can I expect once rehydrated?
Our pre-cooked, dehydrated red lentils have a cooking yield of 2x. This means that 100g dehydrated product will become 200/250g once cooked.
How long are the lentils soaked for?
The red lentils are soaked for 12 hours before they are cooked using water or steam. They are then dried with hot air.
How do pre-cooked, dehydrated red lentils compare to canned lentils?
Pre-cooked, dehydrated red lentils are almost moisture free. On the other hand, canned lentils need to be drained before use, and even after draining contain a higher percentage of water compared to dehydrated alternatives. This means that canned beans and pulses tend to remain the same weight after cooking whereas dehydrated beans and pulses increase in weight, making them perfect for instant soups and noodles.
