Organic Grains

All natural organic Chickpeas are an excellent source of soluble fiber. They are one of the most nutritious of all the legumes, high in calcium, phosphorus and potassium. They have an exceptionally high iron and vitamin C content and contain B complex as well. Like all pulses, they are rich in essential fatty acid. They're a good source of protein. In fact, one cup of these nutty tasting legumes supplies almost half a day's requirement for fiber. The type of soluble fiber found in chickpeas is not only heart-healthy, but also helps to stabilize blood sugars. Their high fiber content makes them satisfying and filling so you're less likely to head for the candy machine two hours after eating. The reality is most Australians need more fiber, and chickpeas are one of the best sources around.
