2016 Year of the Pulse

Pulses, also known as grain legumes, are a group of 12 crops that includes dry beans, dry peas, chickpeas, and lentils. They are high in protein, fiber, and various vitamins, provide amino acids, and are hearty crops. They are increasingly becoming recognized as an excellent part of a healthy diet throughout the world.

Pulse crops are one of the most sustainable crops a farmer can grow. They use far less water and also contribute to soil quality by fixing nitrogen in the soil.

Better for us and the planet. Love pulses, love lentils!
