Pulses & Nutrition


Pulses & Nutrition

Pulses are a low fat source of protein with high levels of protein and fibre.

Pulses contain important vitamins and minerals like iron, potassium and folate.

Pulses provide important nutrients and are recommended as part of a healthy diet.

Pulses are an excellent source of dietary fibre and other complex carbohydrates. Only one cup of cooked pulses gives you more than half the amount of fibre you need for the entire day.

Pulses contain both soluble and insoluble fibre. Soluble fibre can help manage body weight, blood sugar levels and lower cholesterol. Insoluble fibre on the other hand, assists with digestion and regularity.

Eat pulses, be healthy!
