FARM TO TABLE – CHICKPEA FLOUR
CHICKPEA FLOUR IS “THE” NEW GLUTEN-FREE INGREDIENT
Chickpeas were one of the first cultivated crops by humans and are still one of the most popular legumes around the world today, so it’s not surprising that some cultures have used chickpeas to make a grain-free, versatile flour for centuries.
Eating more chickpeas and chickpea flour is a great way to increase your intake of fiber. And because they’re such a high source of fiber, many studies show that eating more chickpeas, and pretty much all types of legumes, can reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, obesity, diabetes and even some types of cancer.
For us here at Sparkling Hill, finding different ways to integrate healthier forms of cooking is always a top priority. We have found so many avenues to incorporate chick pea flour. From dough’s to thickening agents.
For our gluten in tolerate guest, i strongly believe this is breakthrough for them to be be able to enjoy recipe that a flour based or have some element of gluten.
