Armuña Lentils, of the Guareña variety, come from the fields of Armuña, in the North-East of the province of Salamanca.
They have the Protected Geographical Indication Lenteja de la Armuña.
They have a distinctive light-green colour, sometimes mottled, and they have medium size, between 5 and 7 mm (0.2 and 0,3 inches).
This artisan product has excellent cooking qualities: it does not fall apart nor lose its fine skin; it also provides a full flavored clear broth.
Its fine and uniform texture and the softness of its skin, which seems almost nonexistent, are characteristic.
Armuña Lentils stands above the others for its greater richness in protein, calcium, fiber and iron.
