Chickpeas and lentils are an ancient and healthy food. They are high in plant protein, fibre and are naturally gluten free*
Chickpea, (Cicer arietinum), also called garbanzo bean or Bengal gram, annual plant of the pea family (Fabaceae), widely grown for its nutritious seeds. The seeds are high in fibre and plant protein and classified as a super food. A great pantry staple and ideal for Vegan, Vegetarian or Flexitarian meals and Gluten Free diets.
Many of the natural and healthy properties found in pulses, also transition when they are milled into flour. Rich in vitamins and minerals.
