Protein: How Much Is In Beans, Peas & Lentils

Maybe you’re on a high-protein diet, or you’re vegetarian and want to make sure you’re getting enough protein. Or perhaps you’re simply trying to be more mindful of nutrition. Whatever your aim, you’ll benefit from the high amounts of healthy plant-based protein found in beans, peas and lentils.

With a range of 13-18 grams of protein per serving, (lentils have the most at 18g per serving, while our signature red kidneys have 15g per serving) you can enjoy your favorite beans, peas and lentils and know you’re getting a healthy dose of protein towards your daily goal. Add to that a range of 6-19 grams of fiber per serving as well, and you’re getting even more nutritional bang for your buck.

Check out the chart below to see just how much protein per serving you’ll get from each of our Camellia varieties:
