The chickpea, or garbanzo bean, is a very versatile legume. They are super rich in dietary fibre, a good source of protein, as well as a good source of energy thanks to its high levels of manganese and iron.
We love garlic. We use it liberally in our products for the flavour explosions it creates on the palate. It is also well known to have anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial properties. It’s loaded with vitamins and minerals and is high in antioxidants. It has been used throughout history for its health and medicinal benefits including boosting the immune system and fighting the common cold.
We use 100% olive oil which is what gives our homous that rich body of flavour. It also provides an excellent source of energy that is full of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats. These unsaturated fats help to lower bad cholesterol and help maintain a healthy heart. To use any other oil would be a disservice to the delicacy we call homous.
