HOMECRAFT® Pulse flours

Pulse flours — the wheat-free ingredient for delicious gluten-free foods

Make your gluten-free goals a reality with pulse flours

Today, many food manufacturers are looking to replace wheat flour and add novel flours, such as pulse flours, to differentiate their products and branch out into new types of foods. They also want appealing label claims like non-GMO, gluten-free, sustainably sourced and vegetarian. Designing the desired flavor and texture profile, along with appealing label claims such as high protein, high fiber and low fat can come with taste, formulation and processing challenges.

How can you get a bigger slice of the fast-growing market for nutritious, gluten-free products?

Sustainably sourced from peas, lentils, faba beans and chickpeas, our clean label HOMECRAFT® Pulse flours contain 10-20% high-quality protein on a dry basis — enabling the development of a wide range of in-demand gluten-free foods. Pulse flours contain higher protein, about twice as much as cereal grains, are high in soluble and insoluble dietary fiber and contain micronutrients.

A localized approach to sustainability

HOMECRAFT® Pulse flours are produced from pulses grown and processed in Vanscoy, Saskatchewan, Canada. Pulses produce their own fertilizer by fixing nitrogen into the soil and use significantly less non-renewable energy and water relative to other crops.

De-flavored pulse flours

A challenge that product developers face when working with plant-based ingredients such as pulses is the inherent beany flavor. In some applications this beany note is a perfect fit, while in others, a neutral flavor is preferred. This is why we offer de-flavored or clean-taste pulse flour options.

The healthful benefits of HOMECRAFT® Pulse flours can be added to a wide range of carbohydrate-based foods, including gluten-free bakery, noodles, pasta, snacks, energy bars, supplements, breakfast cereals, grain-free pet foods, batters & breadings, meats, meals, dips, soups and sauces.
