As I’m sure you know, 2016 is the International Year of Pulses! Pulses include field peas, dry beans, lentils, chickpeas, faba beans and soybeans – and many of those can be found in each Souptacular soup.
On April 20, Alberta Pulse Growers and retail representatives of pulse consumer products attended an event recognizing 2016 as the International Year of Pulses at the Alberta Legislature. We were pleased to be able to present samples of our product to Alberta MLAs and others in the lower Legislature rotunda. We were in good company with No Nuts Pea Butter from Mountain Meadows and gluten-free baked goods from Kinnikvnnick Foods, who each use Alberta pulses to create their fantastic products. Read more about the event on the Alberta Pulse official website.
The goal of Alberta Pulse Growers (and Souptacular!) is to raise awareness of pulses as environmentally friendly, healthy, nutritious – AND DELICIOUS – food products that are easy and beneficial for the consumer. We also want you to know that Souptacular sources pulses as ingredients wherever we possibly can, making our soups truly LOCAL!
I know… we sure get excited about beans! 🙂
