Castelluccio di Norcia PGI lentils

Castelluccio di Norcia PGI lentils

It has always been cultivated on the karst plains of Castelluccio, within the Sibillini Mountains National Park , at a height of approximately 1,500 metres.

The average quantity produced per year is limited. This makes it a niche product. Thanks to the rather harsh climatic conditions in which it is born, the Castelluccio lentil is the only legume that does not need to be treated for conservation because it is not attacked by the weevil, an insect whose larvae feed on legumes.

The Castelluccio lentil has notable 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 the Castelluccio lentil is the thin and tender skin which allows direct cooking without soaking, significantly reducing preparation times.
