By Eden Foods9 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

No soaking is needed. Place washed lentils in a heavy pot, cover with 3 inches water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 1 hour or until tender. Vegetables and spices may be added if desired. If seasoning with salt, add the last 10 minutes of cooking.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Contrary to what the box says, all lentils NEED to be soaked overnight before cooking and this is no different. Even then, they take a bit longer to cook than standard lentils. They're not the best lentils I've had (I prefer brown) but they're organic and a great basic food staple.
I generally cook these without soaking and they get nice and tender with great flavor. Like all the Eden Foods beans I've gotten, I find that there's never any rotten or super dried beans that I have to pick out. And I've never found rocks or other grit in these beans though that stuff seems to find its way into the dry beans I've gotten at my local grocery store. You can tell by looking at the Eden's lentils that they are better quality than your average bean. These are a staple product for me.
