One brand of green lentils I buy says 7g per for 100g, another says 22g per 100g. Online I can only find info on nutrition by cup, not weight. Which one sounds like it’d be correct?

7 is cooked, 22 is uncooked.

Gosh do I hate when nutrition info is given in cups lol. For lentils it doesn’t matter much, but a cup of anything else can vary significantly in mass

Because lentil will absorb water so 100 grams dry may become 300 grams after cooking, in both cases nutritional value is the same. so you need to pay attention cooked/ raw/ dried/ frozen etc.

Can you link both products please?

The pink/red ones cook in 10 minutes compared to 30-45 with green ones. Both equally tasty, versatile and healthy!
