The hazelnut can provide very important nutritional value in a well-balanced diet, and has several important health benefits in protecting against diseases. Having a special combination of oil (especially oleic acid rich oil structure), proteins, carbohydrate, beta-sitosterol, essential vitamins and minerals, giving hazelnut a special place among other nuts for its unique ability to protect against diseases. Hazelnut and hazelnut oil is the best known source for Vitamin E which is essential for the healthy heart muscles and other muscles of the body as well. Indeed 25-30g of hazelnuts a day is enough for daily vitamin E needs and a very good way of protecting against heart-vein diseases and cancer. Vitamin E is also necessary for normal functioning of the reproduction system. Vitamin E prevents the disintegration of red blood cells, thus it serves as a protection against deficiency of blood which is called anemia. Another benefit of Vitamin E found in hazelnut is to prevent the factors which prepare the basis for cancer disease. If cancer is already formed in the body, then it fights to defuse the harmful cells. Beta-sitosterol, which is found in ample amountd in hazelnut, is an important means of decreasing cholesterol and preventing breast cancer and prostate cancer.

About 30-35% of the weight of hempseed is hemp oil, an edible oil that contains about 80% essential fatty acids (EFAs); i.e., linoleic acid, omega-6 (LA, 55%), alpha-linolenic acid, omega-3 (ALA, 22%), in addition to gamma-linolenic acid, omega-6 (GLA, 1-4%) and stearidonic acid, omega-3 (SDA, 0-2%). Hempseed also contains about 20% of a highly-digestible protein, where one third is edestin and two thirds are albumins. Its amino acid profile is close to "complete" when compared to more common sources of proteins such as meat, milk, eggs and soya. The proportions of linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid in one tablespoon (15 ml) per day of hempseed oil easily provides human daily requirements for EFAs. Unlike linseed oil, hempseed oil can be used continuously without developing a deficiency or other imbalance of EFAs. This has been demonstrated in a clinical study, where the daily ingestion of linseed oil decreased the endogenous production of GLA. Hempseed is an adequate source of calcium and iron. Whole, toasted hempseeds are also a good source of phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, copper and manganese. Hempseed contains no gluten and therefore would not trigger symptoms of coeliac disease.

The kidney bean otherwise called 'the chilli bean' with its dark red skin is named after its visual resemblance to a kidney. The kidney bean is also known as the red bean, although this usage can cause confusion with other red beans. Red kidney beans (rajma in Hindi and Punjabi) are an integral part of the cuisine in northern region of India. Red kidney beans are universally used in New Orleans and much of southern Louisiana for the classic Monday Creole dish of red beans and rice. The smaller, darker red beans are also used, particularly in Louisiana families with a recent Caribbean heritage. Some say they have a smoother taste. Small kidney beans used in La Rioja, Spain, are called Caparrones. Kidney beans are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fibre, as are most other beans. In addition to lowering cholesterol, kidney beans' high fibre content prevents blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal, making these beans an especially good choice for individuals with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia. When combined with whole grains such as rice, kidney beans provide virtually fat-free high quality protein. Kidney beans are an excellent source of the trace mineral, molybdenum, an integral component of the enzyme sulphite oxidase, which is responsible for detoxifying sulphites. Just one cup of cooked kidney beans supplies 177.0% of the daily value for molybdenum. Sulphites are a type of preservative commonly added to prepared foods like delicatessen salads and salad bars. Persons who are sensitive to sulphites in these foods may experience rapid heartbeat, headache or disorientation if sulphites are unwittingly consumed. If you have ever reacted to sulphites, it may be because your molybdenum stores are insufficient to detoxify them.

The lentil or daal or dal (Lens culinaris), considered a type of pulse, is a bushy annual plant of the legume family, grown for its lens-shaped seeds. It is about 15 inches (38cm) tall and the seeds grow in pods, usually with two seeds in each. Lentils contain high levels of proteins, including the essential amino acids isoleucine and lysine. Lentils are deficient in two essential amino acids, methionine and cystine. However, sprouted lentils contain sufficient levels of all essential amino acids, including methionine and cystine.[3] Apart from a high level of proteins, lentils also contain dietary fibre, Folate, vitamin B1, and minerals. Red (or pink) lentils contain a lower concentration of fibre than green lentils (11% rather than 31%). Health magazine has selected lentils as one of the five healthiest foods. Lentils are often mixed with grains, such as rice, which results in a complete protein dish. Lentils, are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fibre. Not only do lentils help lower cholesterol, they are of special benefit in managing blood-sugar disorders since their high fibre content prevents blood sugar levels from rising rapidly after a meal. But this is far from all lentils have to offer. Lentils also provide good to excellent amounts of six important minerals, two B-vitamins, and protein-all with virtually no fat. Lentils provide just 230 calories for a whole cup of cooked lentils.

Linseed (or Flax) is naive to region from the Mediterranean to India and was probably first domesticated in the Fertile Crescent. Flax was extensively cultivated in ancient Egypt. Linseed is an erect annual plant growing to 1.2m tall, with slender stems. The leaves are glaucous green, slender lanceolate, 20-40mm long and 3mm broad. The flowers are pure pale blue, 15-25mm diameter, with five petals; they can also be bright red. The fruit is a round, dry capsule 5-9mm diameter, containing several glossy brown seeds shaped like an apple pip, 4-7mm long. In addition to referring to the plant itself, the word "flax" may refer to the unspun fibres of the flax plant. Linseeds contain high levels of lignans and Omega-3 fatty acids. Lignans may benefit the heart and possess anti-cancer properties. Initial studies suggest that linseed taken in the diet may benefit individuals with certain types of breast and prostate cancers. Linseed may also lessen the severity of diabetes by stabilising blood sugar levels. There is some support for the use of linseed as a laxative due to its dietary fibre content though excessive consumption without liquid can result in intestinal blockage. Consuming large amounts of linseed can impair the effectiveness of certain oral medications, due to its fibre content.
