Canadian students showcase the exciting potential of pulses in foods products

The Next Pulse & Special Crops Convention 2015 in Calgary next June 21-23 will have a special event that will highlight the potential of pulses in new products formulation.  

Canadian students will have the opportunity to showcase their creations to help present pulses (peas, beans, lentils and chickpeas) as innovative food products and build awareness of the International Year of Pulses. Products should be “chef inspired”, convenient to eat and MUST showcase one or more Canadian pulses.

The students have presented extraordinary and creative products in the past years, and this 2015 seems like it won’t be different. Proposals include pulse wraps; a cake made with garbanzo and fava bean flour, pea protein and pea fibre, and “frosting” made with pea fiber; frozen appetizer made with fermented lentils and chickpeas, and many more.

On Tuesday June 23 from 8:30 - 10 a.m. come see and taste these delicious pulse creations made by Canadian post-secondary students. You can help crown one of them a national champion.

The Pulse & Special Crops Convention brings together pulse and special crops processors and exporters, service providers and buyers from around the world. In 2015, the conference theme is “It’s Our Time”. More information here: http://www.cvent.com/events/pulse-special-crops-convention-2015/event-summary-a41b34bcc333444fbeccb1c04bba82ac.aspx
