FAO Declares 2016 Int’l Year of Legumes

Under the slogan ‘nutritious seeds for a sustainable future,’ the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) launched the 2016 International Year of Pulses on Tuesday to raise awareness about the protein power and health benefits of all kinds of dried beans and peas, boost their production and trade, and encourage new and smarter uses throughout the food chain. According to the FAO, pulses, including all kinds of dried beans and peas, are not merely cheap and delicious; they are also a highly nutritious source of protein that can greatly benefit people’s health and livelihoods, particularly in developing countries, says un.org.
