NGF: our pulses

October 12, 2018 6:44 pm Published by 2 Comments

Naturally Good Food has a great selection of pulsesbeans, dried peas, chickpeas and lentils – organic and non-organic. We’ve got pulses in small bags, larger packs and bulk sacks, dried and tinned. We even have organic pulses grown in the UK.

A small 500g pack of pulses makes a meal that serves about four people. If you regularly cook for more people than this, or would like to make double quantities and freeze them, then you’ll probably be more interested in our mid-bulk ranges, from 1kg up to 5kg. Dried pulses keep for a very long time, so buying in bulk (the most economical option) makes lots of sense.

If you’re a caterer, have a large family, or simply get through an awful lot of pulses, then you might prefer the bulk 25kg sacks we can offer.

Dried and tinned

Tinned pulses are a good store-cupboard standby and a really convenient way to get more pulses into your diet. Dried pulses, meanwhile, are a generally cheaper option, and an environmentally friendly one, as there’s no canning process and the amount of beans that can be transported is much greater than when tinned.

British pulses

NGF is proud to stock home-grown pulses from Hodmedod’s. The pulses they grow have been picked because they suit the growing conditions in this country. Indeed, many of them are traditional British varieties of pulses, with long pedigrees in certain areas.

Great for nutrition – and the planet

Pulses are high in dietary fibre, a good source of low-fat protein and amino acids, and full of minerals including iron, potassium, magnesium and zinc. They can be grown easily (being particularly hardy crops) and bought cheaply. They require only a small amount of land and resources (managing, for example, with little water) and contribute to soil quality by fixing nitrogen in the soil.

Here’s a quick look at what we currently have in our Pulses section (alternative names given in brackets).
