Health benefits and properties of chickpeas

Chickpeas are a legume, low in calories but rich in nutrients, fibre and protein. The health benefits of chickpeas are many:

  • They can increase satiety, reduce cholesterol levels and support the body's metabolic processes
  • Chickpeas are a valuable source of essential minerals such as iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc, which the body needs to function optimally
  • They contain folate and vitamin B1, which help to produce energy from carbohydrates. Eating chickpeas can have a beneficial effect on heart health due to the soluble fibre present in their chemical composition. These fibres bind to LDL cholesterol ('bad cholesterol') in the digestive tract and excrete the excess in the faeces, preventing it from building up in the arteries
