Not everyone must be aware of the meaning of the "Legumes" nomenclature

Legumes and Legumes

The term legumes refer to the edible seeds of plants belonging to the legume family (papilionaceae), which can be eaten fresh, dry, frozen and preserved.

The most used legumes in Italy are beans, peas, broad beans, lentils, chickpeas, low consumption of lupins and exceptional that of cicerchie.

Fresh legumes are immature seeds, with a high-water content, whose nutritional characteristics make them fall into the group of vegetables and vegetables.

Legumes

Dried legumes are an excellent source of protein, in fact they contain more than twice as many cereals and more than the same meats, but of lower quality.

The legumes-cereals association improves the protein quality, this is the reason why man all over the world has learned to prepare dishes such as: pasta and beans, rice and peas etc.

Peanuts and soy also belong to the legume family, from whose seeds peanut and soybean oils are extracted, for which they are referred to as oilseeds.

Currently, the consumption of dried pulses is extremely low, 4.5 kg / inhabitant / year.

The reasons for these low consumptions are to be found in the long soaking and cooking times, but probably also in the fact that someone has defined them as the meat of the poor.

The low consumption of dried legumes represents a negative fact from a nutritional point of view, but also from a health point of view, as these foods are able to lower cholesterolemia, thanks to the good content of lecithin.

So forget the worry of running from one shop to another, but get used to saving time for the really important things and, living a sensory experience.
