Pulses for more environmental protection

Information on pulses at the stand of the "Global Bean Project" at the open day of the Ministry of Environment

The EURENI project “The Global Bean” promoted more pulses on the menu at its information stand at the Open Day of the Ministry of Environment.

Environmental protection can taste so good: whether faba beans, lentils, chickpeas or peanuts - the “Global Bean Projectknows plenty culinary ways to use and a wealth of delicious recipes for these and other pulses. This could be learnt during a visit to the stand of the EURENI-funded project at the Open Day of the Ministry of Environment

In addition, the stand staff provided anyone interested with background information about many different pulses, including the fact that they are not only rich in vitamins and remarkable sources of protein, and thus an extremely healthy alternative to meat. But also that they are an important part of sustainable nutrition for mankind, as they can – by means of diversified cultivation – help to make land more fertile and strengthen biodiversity.

Those who now feel the urge to learn more about pulses can familiarise themselves with a large variety of recipes on the Global Bean Project website or benefit from the extensive information on pulses, including several online events.
