AOCS World Pulses Day Webinar

GPC

In this webinar, Dr. Janitha Wanasundara and Dr. Mehmet Tulbek will be talking about the past, present, and future of pulses and pulse ingredients in the global food marketplace on World Pulses Day.

Pulses are global superfoods rich in proteins, dietary fiber, and minerals with several functional properties. Over the last three decades, the consumption of pulses and pulse ingredients significantly increased due to the changing demographics, interest in plant-forward foods, growing allergen sensitivity and awareness, increased vegan and sustainable diets vs. traditional diets, and interest in non-GMO, natural, and clean label products. Presenters will cover several topics about the past, present, and future of pulses and pulse ingredients by emphasizing pulse quality, processing technologies, ingredient and product innovation, nutrition, and future innovation trends.
