They are a significant source of plant-based protein, fiber, and essential nutrients like iron, zinc, and B-vitamins. Characterized by their low-fat content and lack of cholesterol, pulses are beneficial for heart health and can aid in regulating blood sugar levels. Their high fiber content contributes to a feeling of fullness, which can be advantageous in weight management. Additionally, pulses are environmentally sustainable, requiring less water and fertilizer compared to other protein sources. They are also capable of fixing nitrogen in the soil, thereby improving soil health.
