I think that not everybody is familiar with black lentils and their properties, so let me say a few words about them. Black lentils, also called beluga, may be considered the most interesting among other species: Its grains are actually black, small - 2-3 mm, and shiny, and in appearance can remind black caviar - they say that this is why they called it beluga. The composition of black lentils is similar to other species, but their nutrient content is slightly higher: up to 35% protein, easily digestible by our body; up to 53% carbohydrates, including complex; about 2% fat, vitamins A, C, B group - especially a lot of folic acid, which makes black lentils essential for pregnant women and young children; minerals - potassium, phosphorus, iron, zinc, magnesium, calcium, etc. д. The black color of lentils is due to the high content of pigment with antioxidant properties, so that people prone to cardiovascular diseases and cancer are very useful, as well as those who want to stay young and healthy for a long time. Today, many women have heard about isoflavones - plant estrogens that can prolong biological youth and delay the onset of menopause - beluga lentils are also rich in them; by the way, men also need isoflavones - they help protect against prostate diseases. I decided to make a salad, and it was very, very good, I advise everyone to make it.
