Pulses

Pulses (botanical name leguminosae) grow close to the soil, small and bush-like. The plants form capsules in which several single beans, peas, lentils or chickpeas are contained.

Being a typical crop of warmer climatic areas from Asia to the American subcontinents, pulses are frugal plants, which are an important tool in organic agricultural practice:
The growing of pulses helps to bind nitrogen, it prevents the soil from compaction – pulses actively replace chemical substances in farming.

All pulses have a valuable protein structure. Being the typical  “food of the poor” in earlier times, pulses and their proteins are essential for vegetarian and vegan lifestyles helping to replace meat.

The cooked peas and beans are used in a wide range of cooking dishes but also vegetarian burgers and falafels made from chickpeas are an essential part of the contemporary cuisine.

We offer peas, beans, lentils, chickpeas, soy, lupine

Our pulses are mainly grown in Turkey, Canada, Italy, Germany, China
