Also known as garbanzo beans, chickpeas are a Mediterranean legume recognized for its numerous health benefits. So what makes chickpeas so great?

High in Protein

Chickpeas are a vegetarian-friendly source of protein and each cup of cooked garbanzo beans contains 15 grams.

High in Fiber

Foods rich in fiber help control your blood sugar levels and aid in colon health. Just two cups of garbanzo contain 100% of the daily recommended fiber intake!

Promotes bone health

Manganese is an important mineral that helps create bone building enzymes and plays a role in calcium absorption. One cup of garbanzo beans contains up to 94% of the daily recommended intake.
