I know what you’re thinking… what the heck is a pulse? There’s a good chance you have been eating pulses for years (especially if you're a plant-based enthusiast), without even knowing it. Pulses are the dried, edible seeds of plants in the legume family (think beans, peas, lentils, and chickpeas.) Not only are pulses packed with protein and other nutrients, but they are affordable, sustainable, and easy to grow.
While vegans, vegetarians, and other plant-based foodies are enjoying these new products, another customer base has also been benefiting; vegans with food allergies. Three out of eight of the most common food allergens can be completely avoided with a vegan diet. In addition to excluding milk, egg, and shellfish; many plant based companies are creating products free from soy, gluten, peanuts, and tree nuts.
