Superhero Status for Dry Beans

On February 10, the United Nations will celebrate World Pulse Day to raise awareness about dry edible beans and other pulse crops. Pulse Canada noted dry beans are one of the most versatile foods on the planet. Pulses are also low in fat, high in fiber and rich in protein. This food can also help with blood sugar management and diabetes because it does not cause blood sugar spikes. Dry beans are also a heart-healthy food choice. “They should wear superhero capes,” cited Pulse Canada.
