Chickpeas are also known as garbanzo beans, these little legumes are a tasty and healthy treat. One of the oldest cultivated vegetables in the Middle East, chickpeas have been a source of high fibre and protein for thousands of years. The texture of our baked Chickpeas is crispy - they make that lovely, loud crunch in your mouth like potato crisps. The outer layer is a crunchy shell of soya and flavouring with no MSG. Chickpeas have long been valued for their fibre content. Two cups provide the entire Daily Value! But the research news on garbanzos and fibre has recently taken us one step further by suggesting that the fibre benefits of garbanzo beans may go beyond the fibre benefits of other foods. In a recent study, two groups of participants received about 28 grams of fibre per day. But the two groups were very different in terms of their food sources for fibre. One group received dietary fibre primarily from garbanzo beans. The other group obtained dietary fibre from entirely different sources. The garbanzo bean group had better blood fat regulation, including lower levels of LDL-cholesterol, total cholesterol, and triglycerides.
