Our 100% raw, organic sprouted garbanzo flour is a treasure trove of vitamins and minerals, including molybdenum, manganese, folate, copper, phosphorus, and zinc. Vegetarians and vegans, rejoice: garbanzo flour is packed with iron and has as much protein per quarter-cup as an egg! It’s also rich in fiber, including colon-healthy insoluble fiber, and antioxidants like flavonoids, which reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer.
Garbanzo flour is the star of delicious Indian dishes from veggie-packed fritters like pakoras or rich chickpea and cardamom fudge. It’s also a great low-glycemic, gluten-free baking flour; thanks to its high fiber content, it absorbs a lot of water, so you’ll need to use slightly less garbanzo flour than you would wheat flour when making goodies like breads, muffins, pizza crust, and cookies. Also mix equal parts garbanzo flour and water for a protein-rich egg replacement, perfect for baking or for a nice morning scramble. Garbanzo flour’s nutty, savory flavor even makes it a lovely “cheese” base for creamy vegan sauces.
Our Better Than Roasted (BTR) process maximizes the bioavailability of essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in our garbanzo beans. It also removes bitterness and concentrates flavor, yielding a sweeter, more easily digestible, and more flavorful bean. Read more about our BTR process HERE.
We stone grind our flours to further preserve sensitive vitamins and nutrients. Read about the many proven benefits of stone-grinding HERE.
FUN FACT! In Myanmar, garbanzo flour is boiled until thick, then sliced into silky soy-free tofu that crisps up beautifully for use in salads, curries, and snacks.
