The 68th United Nations General Assembly declared 2016 the International Year of Pulses. Pulses have a number of health and nutritional benefits. Incredibly rich in their nutritional value, pulses are small but packed with proteins, complex carbohydrates, micronutrients, protein and B-vitamins, which are crucial parts of a healthy diet. Pulses are low in fat and rich in fibre and are excellent for managing cholesterol, digestive health and regulating energy levels.

It is made using flour from pulses including: peas, lentils, chickpeas and borlotti beans instead of wheat to boost the protein content and other nutritional benefits.
