Water lentils is the world’s fastest growing protein crop. They double in biomass every 36 hours. They can be harvested every day and the waste is minimal: 100% of the plant is used.
This makes it possible to produce more than 7 times the amount of protein per hectare than soy.
Fresh water sources are becoming scarce, therefore it is important to think about the amount of water we use to produce our food. Our water lentils grow in closed system aqua ponds to keep water losses to an absolute minimum.
During their growth water lentils absorb a huge amount of carbon dioxide and nitrates, and emit oxygen to our environment.
Water lentils are easy to grow in both tropic and temperate climate zones. Hence, they can always be produced locally and there is no need for deforestation and long-distance transportation.
