Pulses are important for our world wide food security. They are:
- Good for people as they are packed with nutrients and have a high protein and fibre content.
- Good for soil as their nitrogen-fixing properties improve soil fertility without overloading on synthetic fertilizer.
- Highly water efficient and produce low greenhouse gas emissions.
- Broadly genetically diversified from which climate resilient varieties can be selected.
- Storable for months without processing or freezing without losing their high nutritional content.
Much of this has been gathered from the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization and from Pulse Canada. Both groups want to encourage groups and individuals to grow and use Pulses and are happy to share their information.
