We all know that protein is a necessity. But why? “Protein keeps you full longer and serves as a building block for bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, blood, enzymes, hormones, and vitamins. Protein is also a source of energy (USDA)”. Wow, protein does alot! That is why we need it!

Eating Pulseeds (split – peas, dry beans and lentils) has many nutritional benefits, which include being high in vitamins, fiber, low in sodium, and very high in protein. Yes, you heard right! Pulseeds contain very high amounts of protein, without unnecessary fat, which comes from meat products.

Now you ask, why Pulseeds, and not other protein- bearing foods? Pulseeds contain a complete protein profile including essential amino acids. You will not feel that greasy and fatty feeling of meat products. And hey, Pulseeds are vegetables! How great is that!

Crunchfuls are very nutritious and a great way to get protein in your diet. Crunchfuls provides you with vegetable servings too! Get your Protein Crunch on with Crunchfuls!
