Gentle Processing™ Objective: Reduce volatiles, enhance flavour profiles, and boost food safety.
Pulses are more than just a great source of proteins. Low-fat and relatively inexpensive pulses offer a dynamic range of minerals and nutrients. Pulse crops also have a smaller carbon footprint as they do not require excessive chemicals or refrigeration during transport. However, the use of pulses as part of a healthy diet is in decline across the world. Part of the reason consumers have turned away from pulses is a shift in taste. Pulses do not appeal to the contemporary palate.
Gentle Processing™ enhances the flavour profiles of pulse crops and helps to keep them fresh, making them more accessible to different parts of the globe.
