Roasted Unsalted Chickpeas (garbanzo beans) are humidified to make them soft and are then roasted in an oven. They are a satisfying snack and an excellent substitute for oily nuts. A classic great and healthy snack!
Chickpeas have been found to help control appetite. Consuming chickpeas as part of a balanced diet can help limit cravings and overall hunger and appetite. Nutritional studies have found that chickpea fiber can be metabolized by the colon’s bacteria to produce short-chain fatty acids such as acetic, propionic and butyric acid. This process can lower the risk of colon cancer. Two cups of chickpeas provide the entire recommended daily value of fiber. It’s also believed that the fiber in chickpeas goes further than fiber in other legumes, helping to regulate levels of LDL-cholesterol and triglycerides.
