Join APG for AB Pulse Showcase to Sample Foods Made with Field Peas, Beans, Lentils, Chickpeas NOV 28 2016 | Consumers | Event and News Release

The Alberta Pulse Growers Commission (APG) is proud to celebrate the International Year of Pulses 2016 by supporting teams from Leduc’s Food Processing Development Centre and Brooks’ Food Science and Technology Centre in the development of food products incorporating pulse ingredients.

“APG is very excited to share these delicious food products that inventively use pulses grown by Alberta farmers,” said APG Chair Allison Ammeter. “We have been working on this project with the scientists from the Alberta Agriculture and Forestry centres throughout 2016, and we couldn’t think of a more fitting tribute to the International Year of Pulses than sharing the creations they developed with the intent to commercialize.”

APG invites you to connect with the talented scientists, as well as experts from many facets of the pulse industry, as you learn about — and sample — an array of innovative pulse products, such as licorice, macarons, kettle-cooked chips and meat bars.
