Dried Lentils from Norcia IGP


The Castelluccio lentil has remarkable nutritional qualities: all its proteins, vitamins, fibers and mineral salts make it excellent for those who need a diet rich in iron, potassium and phosphorus, low in fat and very nutritious.

Another important characteristic of Castelluccio lentils is the thin and tender peel which allows cooking directly without soaking, considerably reducing preparation time

The history of this precious vegetable is very ancient. It has always been cultivated on the karstic planes of Castelluccio, within the Sibillini Mountains National Park, at a height of about 1,500 meters. The quantity produced on average per year is limited. This makes it a rare and special product.
