PULSES: Creating New Trends in the Food Industry through these “SUPERFOODS”
Pulses are edible seeds of various crops such as peas, lentils, chickpeas, dry edible beans (kidney bean, black bean, navy beans, pinto bean) and other. Pulses in the USA are known for consistency in their size and quality. From the 68th UN General Assembly, they declared 2016 as the International Year of Pulses that raised awareness and promoted consumption of pulses at events around the world. More pulse-based products can be found on the shelves of markets everywhere.
