4 Types of Organic Pulses and their Health Benefits

Before looking at the types of Organic Pulses, let us first take you through what the term ‘Pulses’ stands for. Though the terms Legumes and Pulses tend to be used interchangeably there is a difference between them, so let us look at what that differentiating factor is.

Legumes are the edible seeds of a flowering plant (also known as Legumes) and include all types of Peas, Beans and Lentils both fresh and dried (examples for fresh – Green Peas, Green beans; for dried – Lentils, Black-eyed Beans etc). Pulses on the other hand refer to only the dried seeds of these plants like Beans (example Rajma), Chickpeas (example Kabuli Chana), Lentils (example Green Moong Dal) and Peas (Toor Dal).
