Napolina’s extensive pulses range add both flavour and texture to a variety of dishes as well as being low in fat and high in protein and fibre. If you have ever wondered what pulses are, or how to use them, this is the ideal guide.
Pulses can be bought either dried or in cans. Dried pulses in packs must be soaked and cooked for a number of hours whereas canned pulses are much more convenient. These have already been soaked and cooked and can be used in your dishes straight away.
Why eat pulses?
Napolina pulses have great nutritional benefits and can be a great alternative to meat as many are high in protein. This means they are popular with vegetarians but also with health conscious people as they are also naturally low in fat, sugar and salt. Counting towards one of your 5 fruit and vegetables per day, pulses are also naturally high in fibre.
