2017 U.S. Pulse Quality Survey Published!

The 2017 U.S. Pulse Quality Survey is published and available. The pulse quality survey is a report that provides proximate quality parameters (moisture, protein, total starch, soaking ability, starch properties, color, and canning quality) and data on total micronutrients (iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium, potassium, selenium, beta-carotene) and phytic acid concentrations in dry peas, lentils, and chickpea that are commercially grown in the USA.

USA grown pulses are an important component of the world’s food supply and contribute to better human nutrition and health. Because both the supply and demand of pulses are forecast to grow, quality information is vital to continued efforts by the US pulse industry to produce higher quality products. The US pulse quality survey provides data to aid growers in the production of high quality pulses, to aid processors and suppliers in assuring pulse quality, and to inform local and international consumers.
