I love the booklet for many reasons. The pictures are amazing and great to use with the kids to show how many types of beans are out there and where they are grown in Canada. It also highlights why, when they are very starchy, can they still be considered low glycemic. Fiber baby! So for those of us that are diabetic as well -- they have the chart I have been looking for for so long! The nutritional breakdown of all the common celiac friendly flours. They also included the flours that they tested the recipes with... Bob's which is commonly available at most stores, and Best Cooking Pulses, a site I had not heard of before. They do not direct ship at this time but it looks interesting to follow up with.
Back to the website. It has so much information about the industry in Canada and has a recipe index. I pulled a recipe from the other booklet they offer: All credit and stuff goes to them for this one... I am super excited to try it out!
