Pulses, the edible seeds of legume plants, come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Amongst the types of pulses are dry beans, dry broad beans, dry peas, chickpeas, cow peas, pigeon peas, lentils, Bambara beans, and others... While not common in all of Southeast Asia, they are very popular in Myanmar and its neighboring countries. IPNI's Southeast Asia Program is currently planning new R&D engagements in the near future to better understand the nutritional needs of pulses.
