Dried Lentils are legumes (beans) that have been cultivated for thousands of years. The actual size of a lentil is about 1/4 inch. Lentils are one of the best vegetable sources of iron. They are frequently combined with rice, which has a similar cooking time. The #10 can holds approximately 6 pounds/12 cups of lentils.
Be prepared and have your food storage on hand!
Each #10 can is sealed with an oxygen absorber. If stored in a cool, dry place, beans should last 10+ years. In an emergency situation, boiling the beans in water for 20 minutes will kill any bacteria and will still give you some nutrition.
