Pulses are high in fiber and protein, yet low in fat, with zero cholesterol count. It provides iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc and other minerals that play a vital role in maintaining a healthy and balanced diet.
The global pulses market is estimated at 70 million MT annually and India is both the largest producer and consumer of the commodity, accounting for 25% of total output and 30% of total consumption. China and Brazil are a distant second in consumption, with an approximate 6% market share each.
India, Brazil, Myanmar and China are the leading cultivators of pulses, although pulses grow abundantly in certain parts of Africa.
Given the importance of protein-rich pulses to the predominantly vegetarian Indian diet, that nation’s government has banned exporting the commodity, except for a particular type of chickpea, to ensure domestic availability.
Despite this measure, demand frequently outstrips supply creating a significant market for imports. In 2014, some 3.2 million tons of pulses were imported into India.
