The need of food proteins fulfilling a number of requisites, which include being sustainable, cost- and labor-effective, safe and secure, health-promoting, process-prone and possibly not too far from the usual food habits of the consumers, is acute. In the plant kingdom suitable dietary protein sources can be found where they are especially abundant: that is in the edible legume seeds, which may reach up to 40% protein on the dry weight basis. Some constraints are currently limiting a greater consumption of pulses and oil-bearing legume seeds, but ways to overcome most of these bottlenecks are at hand, provided holistic strategies are being implemented.
