Pulses are the food of the future. They are the future of better nutrition… the future of improved health… and the future of sustainable food.
Pulses are good for people – They are a low fat, high fibre source of protein that is full of vitamins and minerals.
Pulses are good for the planet – They have a low carbon footprint and enrich the soil.
February 10, 2018 will be the third-ever Global Pulse Day, a global event to celebrate pulses and continue the important gains made with 2016 International Year of Pulses. The first Global Pulse Day took place on January 6, 2016 as “Pulse Feast”, with 141 events spanning 36 countries, reaching 21 million people.
We’re encouraging you and people around the world to eat pulses on February 10, 2018 – or choose an alternative date in the week immediately preceding or following February 10. You can also raise awareness on the multiple benefits of consuming pulses for people and the planet.
Anybody can participate in any corner of the globe and share their Global Pulse Day experience with the rest of the world by linking to LovePulses either by posting your delicious pulse adventure on social media by using the hashtag #GlobalPulseDay or #LovePulses.
Happy Global Pulse Day!
