Lentils for lentil stew: peeled or unpeeled?

By the way: lentils are a legume and are considered not only particularly nutritious, but also healthy in all aspects. They contain a lot of proteins, fibers, minerals and trace elements of iron and fluorine. You can buy them peeled or unpeeled. Most of the nutrients and flavor are in the shell, so unpeeled lentils are more nutritious and tastier. On the other hand, shelled lentils are easier to digest.
