It’s not just food for the poor. Incredible Health Benefits of Eating Chickpeas


Chickpeas are among plant sources of protein, and they are also high in fiber and other nutrients such as iron, folate, phosphorus and manganese.

In large parts of the Eastern Mediterranean, hummus features prominently among appetizers alongside olive oil, and is also included in the amounts of a number of foods.

There are 19 grams of protein in 100 grams of chickpeas, and it is rich in vitamins such as B6.

According to the “Healthline” website, hummus helps you feel full, and 67% of it is carbs, while the remaining percentage is protein and fat.

And since chickpeas help to feel full, it is useful for those who want to suppress appetite, and they will not eat larger amounts of foods that will make them more likely to gain weight, which portends chronic diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure.

In addition, chickpeas help control blood sugar, because the fiber it contains reduces the absorption of carbohydrates, and when this effect occurs, the sugar level increases reasonably in the blood.

Even during digestion, chickpeas increase the production of beneficial bacteria in the intestines, and they also protect against serious health conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cancer.

The source added that chickpeas improve brain function because they contain choline, which is a type of B vitamin that the body badly needs.
