LENTEIN is a protein extracted from the Water Lentil – Duckweed which is considered to be the world’s smallest flowering plant. It grows so fast that we harvest every day! People in South East Asia are used to water lentils as a vegetable with a flavor similar to sweet cabbage. LENTEIN protein has a higher level of Essential Amino Acids and BCAA’s than other plant proteins and it is a nutritional protein boost for any type of product. The protein is highly digestible (PDCAAS .93) for a protein that is minimally processed. LENTEIN Complete is also a good source of Omega 3, high in antioxidants, dietary fiber and contains Lutein, Vitamins and Minerals. Grown inside a sustainable and clean hydroponic pond and minimally processed it goes from farm to table in less than 30 minutes. The water is recycled together with the nutrients for the crop making it a very sustainable solution. LENTEIN has been formulated into smoothies and drinks due to its mild and sweet taste, but it also works for dry mix goods such as chips and crackers.
