International Year of Pulses

Yes, you did read that correctly! 2016 is International Year of Pulses. Pulses are annual leguminous crops yielding between one and 12 grains or seeds of variable size, shape and colour within a pod, used for both food and feed. Pulse Australia is running a range of fun events and competitions to promote these tasty crops.

Try this quiz to find out how much you know about pulses. If you are not sure of some of the answers have a look at the following JCU Library books: Dry beans and pulses production, processing, and nutrition and Cereals and pulses: nutraceutical properties and health benefits.
