A cool-season crop, lentil is considered to be one of the oldest leguminous crops of mankind. It is an excellent source of proteins, fibres, vitamin A & B, potassium, iron, minerals, nutrients and complex carbohydrates. Moreover, because of its high lysine & tryptophan content, its consumption with wheat or rice provides a complete balanced diet for human consumption. Besides its nutritional benefits, lentil also helps to tackle chronic health issues such as diabetes, heart-diseases and obesity. Considered as a staple food, lentil is usually consumed in the form of dry matter seeds, i.e. grain legumes. Being a cheap alternative to protein and energy, the consumption of lentil has rapidly increased in the past decade, particularly in emerging countries. Factors like population growth, improving living standards and changing dietary patterns have led to the augmented consumption of this crop.
