Pulses – a vegetable treasure trove
Pulses belong to the pea family. They come in the form of beans, lentils and peas, and comprise the edible seeds that grow inside pods. The pod starts out as a fruit leaf, but over time, it opens up to release the seeds as a delicious and nutritional vegetable treasure trove.
In collaboration with food manufacturers, we tap into the potential of pulses to create flavourful solutions for a discriminating market of consumers who do not want to compromise on health or taste.
The nutritional properties of pulses make them popular alternatives to animal proteins and grain-based starches, while giving vegan products the proper consistency and optimum nutritional values. Pulses are also gluten-free, which makes life easier for consumers with allergies.
Pulses are the perfect replacement for meat, fish, bakery and dairy products and are therefore an important ingredient in vegetarian and vegan cooking. Their high levels of protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals contribute all the essential nutrients for a healthy and varied diet. Their low fat content is also a decisive factor in the market for informed and health-conscious consumers.
We have insights into both the trends and the benefits, and together with food manufacturers, we co-create the best, healthiest and most delicious alternatives to traditional foods.
