Frequently Asked Questions
What is a pulse?
The terms 'pulse' and 'legume' are often used interchangeably, however pulses are the edible dried seeds of certain legume crops. Common pulse crops are chickpeas, mungbean, faba bean, green and yellow peas, lentil, navy bean and the like.
How do you neutralise the astringent taste of pulses, and activate a nutty flavour?
Unfortunately that information is subject to a world-wide patent. We can, however, tell you that we use heat treatment to release the nutty flavours that are pre-existing within a pulse. Absolutely no chemicals are used in the process.
How is the nutritional profile maintained throughout the process?
We use a natural, gentle process that maintians the nutritional integrity of the pulse. In fact, our process enhances the nutritional values of manganese, phosphorous, iron, zinc, fibre and carbohydrates.
