Pulses are very high in protein and fiber and very low on the Glycemic Index (great for diabetics). When grown, pulses leave soil nitrogen enriched, thereby reducing the need for fertilizers.
The UN declared 2016 the "International Year of Pulses" to promote pulses as a primary source of protein and other essential nutrients as well as increase awareness of pulses' environmental and sustainability benefits. As we like to say, "It's good to have a Pulse!".
