Chickpeas or Garbanzo Beans, Nature's Glory
Product of China
Chickpeas (also known as Garbanzo beans) has a sweet, nutty flavour and shaped somewhat like a heart.
As early as the seventh chickpeas were domesticated in the Near East and were cultivated with the cereals as early as 7000 BC. They quickly spread to the Indian subcontinent where they became a principal pulse crop and a dietary mainstay.
These beans are the classic ingredient to the Middle Eastern spread called "hummus," chickpeas, also make excellent stews and cutlets.
Chickpeas are highly nutritious, being rich in protein, fat, calcium, iron and B vitamins. They contain more iron than other legumes. Chinese traditional medicine considers them beneficial for the pancreas, stomach and heart. They also contain phytochemicals called saponins, which can act as antioxidants.
