Pulses are the edible seeds of plants in the legume family. Pulses grow in pods and come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. They are annual crops that yield between one and 12 grains or seeds. The term “pulses” is limited to crops harvested solely as dry grains, which differentiates them from other vegetable crops that are harvested while still green.
Pulses are healthy, nutritious and easy to cook with. They are a very important part of a human diet providing all nutritional and physiological beneficial effects on human health. Rich in protein, carbohydrates, and dietary fiber, they are a rich source of other bio active components, and their consumption extends worldwide. Also sometimes referred to as dried legumes, protein-rich pulses are considered a staple food for a large portion of the Indian population, which satisfies everyone’s protein and energy demands. Due to their high protein content and low cost, they are referred to as ‘poor people’s meat’. Pulses are low in fat, which helps in the maintenance of body weight and reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Moreover, there are various potential health benefits due to the presence of a substance called phytochemicals, that are primarily anti cancer.
Not just in terms of consumption, but growing them also promotes sustainable agriculture, as pulse crops help decrease greenhouse gases, increase soil health, and use less water than other crops.
