Legumes are a group of plants that produce seeds rich in protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. Legumes include beans, lentils, chickpeas, peas and others. Legumes are considered a cheap and nutritious source of food in many parts of the world, but they need good packaging to preserve their quality and freshness.
Filling and packaging of legumes is a process that ensures protection of seeds from damage, leakage, pollution, insect infestation, odors or changes in temperature or humidity. Packaging aims to increase the shelf life of the product, facilitate its transport and attract consumers.
