Mission ImPULSEible Saskatchewan - April 2nd, 2013

Pulse Canada and the Saskatchewan Pulse Growers kicked off Mission ImPULSEible in Saskatoon at the University of Saskatchewan. Dr. Mike Nickerson incorporated the use of pulses into his class’ final project. The class approached the competition with creative and enthusiastic flare and created very interesting products. Some of the products included a multi-use pulse puree, pulse stuffed and coated chicken breasts, pulse cookies, brownies, even a chocolate pulse pasta!

The presentation room was filled to the brim with supporting students, university faculty, pulse industry representatives and media. Global, Shaw, CTV were some of the media in attendance.

Judges included:

Supratim Ghosh, University of Saskatchewan

Tom Warkentin, University of Saskatchewan

Mehmet Tulbek, Alliance Grain Traders

Sid Friesen, Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture

Shawn Gibson, Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture

Sara Lui, Saskatchewan Food Industry Development Centre, Inc.

Amanda Woroniuk, Saskatchewan Pulse Growers 

Judges asked some hard pressed questions regarding shelf stability, additional product applications, plans for marketing and product distribution.

In the end only one team could proceed to the national competition taking place during the Pulse and Special Crops Convention on June 25th in Calgary.
