Lentils, or lens culinaris, refer to high-protein and -fiber legumes that grow in pods in red, brown, and black colors. They are an excellent source of fibers, vitamins A and B, potassium, iron, and complex carbohydrates. Lentils are specially cultivated for both food and feed purposes to be used across various applications like batter and breading, bakery, beverages, meat, and snack foods. Due to their low cost and high nutrient content, lentils are consumed as a staple food across India, Pakistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh. In addition, they offer numerous health benefits, such as lowering the risk of cardiovascular diseases and cancer, controlling diabetes, enhancing metabolism, and improving digestion, which has increased their demand across the globe.
Lentil Market Trends:
The global lentil market is primarily driven by their increasing application as taste and aroma enhancers in soups, sauces, dips, and spreads. They are also widely used in ready-to-eat (RTE) food products, including bakery products and snack foods, which are suitable for both vegetarians and vegans. Besides this, lentils also find applications as animal feed and are combined with cereals to provide a balanced diet of micronutrients and essential amino acids. The rising awareness among individuals about the harmful effects of synthetic chemicals on food products has encouraged consumers to adopt organically produced lentils. These legumes also possess a balanced combination of carbohydrates, which helps replenish energy after a workout, improve stamina, and repair muscle damage. As a result, they are highly preferred by athletes and health-conscious individuals. In addition, the growing organized retail sector is facilitating the availability of lentils across the globe. Moreover, the rising population, improving living standards and changing dietary patterns are some of the other factors increasing the demand for lentils.
