Pulses Market Outlook:
Pulses are an essential part of consumer diets across the world. Apart from being a highly rich source of protein, pulses have other nutritional benefits. For instance, they provide important vitamins, complex carbohydrates and minerals, such as iron, antioxidants & folate, owing to which there has been an increase in the demand for pulses in the global market. Moreover, pulses do not have any cholesterol and virtually no fat, owing to which they have become the preferred choice of consumers seeking no-fat sources of protein, and this is boosting the demand for pulses.
A large number of consumers are facing problems due to the presence of a large amount of cholesterol in their daily diet, and this is forcing them to adopt cholesterol-free foods. This is another key factor that is boosting the demand for pulses. Rapid increase in the population of vegans is also driving the demand for pulses as pulses are a vegetarian alternative to animal protein. Pulses are also ecologically sustainable agricultural solutions due to their tendency to reduce the emission of gases such as CO2. Their cultivation helps lower the level of greenhouse gases, owing to which the governments of various countries are encouraging farmers to grow pulses.
Increasing health consciousness among consumers as well as the growth of the vegan population is driving the pulses market:
The versatile nature and wide range of options for the consumptions of pulses are some of the major factors fuelling the demand for pulses in the market.
