Pulses have variable cooking times, which are often long when compared to refined grains. Scientists in many countries are working to develop new pulse varieties with consistently fast cooking times. During their research, scientists collect data in their laboratories about how long different pulses take to cook, but real world cooking time data is still missing.
Please consider participating in this citizen science challenge by cooking a pulse of your choice according to your preferred cooking method (or our standard method) and record the cooking time (until fully cooked) and a few other details here.
You are being asked to participate in a research study. The purpose of the study is determine the cooking times of different pulses when cooked by consumers according to their preferred method. You will be asked to cook a pulse of your choice and measure the cooking time. Your participation is voluntary. You can skip any question you do not wish to answer. You must be 18 or older to participate. If you have any questions please contact Karen Cichy, at [email protected]. You indicate that you voluntarily agree to participate in this research study by submitting the survey. At the conclusion of the survey we will post our findings at the same site.
