Why Pulses Are Super Foods

Put Pulses on Your Plate

Pulse crops are super foods and super ingredients, delicious and nutritious in both their whole and processed forms. Pulses are a great way to add fiber, protein, and vitamins and minerals to everyday foods at home, in school lunches, and on restaurant dishes.

Pulses represent an opportunity for culinary artisanry, from which European, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and South Asian cultures’ food traditions can be followed - or borrowed to create global fusion foods.

Utilization of pulse flours and fractionated pulse ingredients in food manufacturing is an emerging trend. Pulse ingredients are being utilized in an increasing number of products, including pasta, breakfast cereal, snack food, deep frozen dishes, dressings, extruded bakery products, cookies, crackers, sauces, instant soups, and puddings.
