Best Cooking Pulses, Inc. (BCP)
Best Cooking Pulses, Inc. (BCP) is a Canadian, family-owned agrifoods business that has been active in the international pulse trade since 1936. In 2016, BCP celebrates 80 years in business and 25 years of organic certification.
BCP's two pulse-dedicated facilities are located on the Canadian prairies. At Portage la Prairie, Manitoba they utilize proprietary milling methods to create 'Best' gluten-free (ELISA tested) pulse flours, pea fiber and bran products for food and pet food markets. At Rowatt, Saskatchewan they source, clean and bag whole peas, lentils and chickpeas, and de-hull, split and polish peas, for sale throughout the world.
'Best' products are non-GM and include naturally polished green and yellow split peas, whole peas, chickpeas, lentils, pulse flours and grits (pea, chickpea, lentil and bean), pea fiber, and extruded pulse inclusions. 'Best' pulse products are gluten-free (<15ppm), kosher, halal, vegan/vegetarian, non-GM and available natural (conventional) or certified organic (Can, EU, US).
BCP peas (split and whole), pulse flours and pea fiber enable food companies to boost the nutrition of gluten-free and grain-based products. When combined with grains, pulses and pulse flours can enhance protein quality, while maintaining maximum respect for the sustainable needs of the planet. Pulse flours may be used to replace eggs.
BCP is the premier supplier of pea fiber and pulse flours to the pet food industry. The purity of ‘Best’ pulse ingredients which are milled without admixture provide high quality product for the grain-free market in particular.
At Best Cooking Pulses, Inc. they work closely with industry groups, health organizations and food research laboratories to promote the functional, nutritional and health benefits of peas, chickpeas, lentils and beans. See more
