100% Natural, Divino Gusto Organic Chickpeas are a milestone of our Umbrian production, a food rich in proteins and extremely energetic.
Chickpeas have a large amount of fiber, carbohydrates and unsaturated fats that help the functionality of the cardiovascular system. Boiled and seasoned with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil they become an excellent side dish. They are great for soups, seasoning, pastaside dish, Hummus..and much more!
Divino Gusto Organic Chickpeas are grown entirely in the hilly area of Castel Viscardo, near Orvieto. The particular location of this area, its altitude and the composition of the earth allow us to grow our legumes in a completely natural way, without the use of pesticides, herbicides and other substances considered toxic to our body. We also avoid the use (very frequent in this type of crops) of "dry everything" which can infiltrate up to the roots of the plant, so at each harvest we rigorously remove the excess grass by hand.
Known as the vegetaria meat, due to their high protein content, chickpeas have important health properties. They help lower bad cholesterol, prevent hypertension, and promote the metabolism of proteins and lipids.
