Peas, beans, chickpeas, lentils, soy beans, lupines, formerly having been frowned upon as poor people’s foods, have made their comeback long since. With ever growing influence from oriental and indian cuisines, pulses are more and more becoming a part of our regular diet. Furthermore, they are an importan source of high valued vegetable protein, used not only by vegetarians and vegans.
Since the stone age, pulses are being cultivated worldwide – their use can be dated back archaeologically at least 8.000 years. Due to their high nutritional, mineral and protein content as well as their storage properties, pulses are still widely poplar today.
Ziegler & Co. Naturwaren offers a wide range of pulses and derivates from controlled organic farming.
