Dry Brown Lentils and Diet

Legumes (like Dry Brown Lentils), have a high carb count but a much lower "net carb" or "digestible carb" content. They contain several vitamins and minerals. They are a good source of dietary fiber, which has a number of health benefits. For example, fiber helps protect against digestive disorders and disease. According to at least one clinical diet study, an eating-plan rich in beans can help patients with either type 2 or type 1 diabetes to reduce their daily insulin intake. Healthy low carb diets typically recommend beans in later phases of the diet plan.

Dry Brown Lentils, Glycemic Index, Glucose

Due to their high soluble fiber content (inc. gums, beta glucans, pectin), legumes are digested very slowly, are thus low on the glycemic index, and help maintain stable blood glucose levels and healthier glucose metabolism. Eating more beans helps to reduce the effect of high glycemic index foods by lowering the glycemic value of meals.
