Pulses are legumes that produce seed for human consumption. They are harvested when dry, and then cooked, usually requiring long soaks in cooking liquid. They are high in carbohydrates, B vitamins, and protein--often able to serve as meat substitutes in the diet. Oil content of pulses varies widely. Many pulses contain anti-nutritional factors or poisonous substances and need to be thoroughly cooked before eating. Under proper conditions, they can be stored for many years, serving as valuables sources of food security. Most tropical pulses are annuals.
