Where to buy?
You can find most pulses and fractions in grocery stores, organic food stores and bulk food stores. Look for pulses in the ethnic, gluten-free, bulk or canned food sections. They are also found in soups and in the baking ingredients aisle. Grocery stores that carry pulses include Safeway, Superstore, Sobeys, Co-op Food Stores, IGA, and Bulk Barn.
When buying dry pulses, look for:
- Bright coloured seeds
- Uniform size
- Smooth skins without chips or shriveled seed coats
For local peas, beans and lentils please visit Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiative website to find companies and businesses that may be able to source bulk or consumer ready pulses.
