To commemorate and help promote the “International Year of Pulses” as declared by the United Nations General Assembly, InHarvest is introduced the latest addition to its portfolio of menu solutions featuring a variety of legumes celebrating 2016 and beyond. 

Black Forest Blend: Four highest-quality legumes—French green lentils, locally grown and harvested green lentils, black beluga lentils and split baby garbanzo beans—unite in InHarvest’s new Black Forest Blend to create an appealing texture and distinctive flavor while delivering a powerhouse of protein and other nutrients.

“Pulse” is another term for legumes such as dry beans, peas, lentils and chickpeas. Beyond traditional markets, pulses have steadily increased in popularity as more people around the world recognize their appeal as nutritious, versatile foods that can play an essential part in healthy diets. What’s more, pulses leave the lowest carbon footprint of any protein—a fact that resonates with today’s eco-conscious consumers. 

“Diners looking for authentic, earthborn foods will love seeing menu options made with Black Forest Blend,” says Michael Holleman, InHarvest’s director of culinary development. “The black belugas produce a rich broth that easily takes on the flavors of signature additions. The mild earthiness of the other two lentil varieties along with the smooth nuttiness of the garbanzos makes for a wonderful blank canvas for chefs’ creative touches.” 

Quick-cooking and requiring no pre-soaking, Black Forest Blend from InHarvest is available in packs of six 2-pound sleeves. For more information, visit
