The Power of Pulses

Pulses are the dried seed of peas, edible beans, lentils and chickpeas and they’re very high in protein and fibre, and low in fat—a healthy addition to any meal.

Chickapea pasta is made from only organic chickpeas and lentils, which are both part of the pulse family.

When you eat a bowl of Chickapea, your body and taste buds will definitely be doing a happy dance! Check out our full Nutrition Label for all the details.

Take a look below at all the incredible health benefits associated with eating Chickapea pasta as a healthy source of pulses.

Super Nutritious

Chickapea is chock full of nutrients: complex carbs, thiamine, niacin, magnesium, iron, B vitamins, zinc, phosphorus and antioxidants. It’s also has prebiotics for a healthy gut and folate that aids in healthy pregnancy.

Protein Power

With 23 grams of protein per 3.5 oz (100 g) serving, Chickapea has as much protein as a 3 oz serving of salmon or chicken. Plus, it has 31% of your daily iron intake! Why is protein so important? Protein is made up of amino acids which help to build and repair body tissues, build antibodies and build strong muscles.

Full of Fibre

A single serving of Chickapea boasts 11 grams of fibre–nearly half of your daily recommended value. Fibre helps food move faster through our intestines and allows for better digestion, while enabling the body to absorb more of the nutrients. Fibre also controls the release of glucose into bloodstream. High-fibre foods help us stay regular, maintain a healthy weight, and ensure a healthy heart.

Heart Healthy

This high-fibre pasta will help lower cholesterol, may decrease heart disease and works to keep your heart healthy. Chickapea pasta also contains potassium, vitamin C and B-vitamins; all beneficial to support heart health.

Simply Made

Real ingredients, no artificial anything! Organic, gluten-free, non-GMO, vegan, Kosher – wholesome, healthy and tasty! Organic chickpeas and lentils – that’s it!
