Decorticated Crimson Lentil

Decorticated Crimson Lentil

Preparation and comments

The decorticated lentil cooks very quickly and is perfect for soups. It has less fiber and tannin than the whole lentil which makes it easier to digest. This lentil is excellent for children and old people who otherwise wouldn’t eat pulses at all.


The bright orange color can be enhanced when polished with water or oil. During the cooking process they become yellow.


This lentil partiallly losses its vegetable flavour (mainly tannin) when split. Final result is a sweeter and neutral flavour.
