Meet Chickpeas ‘Pulses’

Chickpeas are the dry edible seeds of plants in the legume family. In understandable terms, they are a category of superfoods and they are incredible healthy pulses.

Protein-packed: Pulses contain up to 9 grams of protein per 1/2 cup cooked serving – twice the protein of quinoa and unlike many protein-rich foods, they are low in fat.

Beneficial for disease prevention:   Pulses have been shown to improve blood sugar control and reduce blood cholesterol and blood pressure, thus reducing the risk factors for heart disease and diabetes.

Good for dietary restrictions: Being Nut Free, Gluten Free and vegetarian makes them a good option for people with special diets, allergies or sensitivities.

Nutrients galore: Pulses deliver high levels of potassium, magnesium, zinc, B vitamins and iron. One serving of black beans has 1.5 times the amount of iron as flank steak, plus three times the folate (an essential 8 vitamin) of kale, and as much potassium as a banana. Even more, red kidney beans are loaded with more antioxidants than blueberries or pomegranate juice.

High in Fiber: Pulses are high in both soluble and insoluble fiber, helping with staying regular, losing weight, and feeling fuller longer.

Smart Source of Folate: Pulses are excellent sources of folate, a B vitamin important during pregnancy to reduce the risk for neural tube birth defects. Folate is also essential to brain development and function.

  • Enrich soil health by leaving behind essential nutrients including nitrogen and beneficial microbes for the next crop
  • Extract water from a shallower depth, leaving more water deep in the soil for other crops, which makes them well-adapted for drought-prone areas
  • Natural Fertilizer and good for Soil
  • Takes fewer days to grow compared to other crops


  • Low Carbon footprint
  • Require less nitrogen fertilizers because they create their own fertilization by pulling nitrogen from the air and into the soil
  • Use just one-tenth of the water of other proteins. For example, it takes only 43 gallons of water to produce 1 lb of pulses compared to 800–1,800 gallons of water to produce the same amount of animal protein
