*The USDA recommends a weekly serving of 1 ½ cups of legumes (pulses) as part of a healthy eating pattern (https://health.gov/dietaryguidelines/2015/guidelines/). And a Canadian study found that consuming ½ cup cooked pulses (~99g) per day or more is associated with higher nutrient intakes and improved diet quality. Higher nutrient intakes were noted for fibre, protein, folate, magnesium, iron, potassium and zinc (Mudryj et al., 2012, British Journal Nutrition).
