About Baba Foods

What is hummus?
Hummus is one of the world's oldest foods, with evidence suggesting use of chickpeas by ancient Egyptians 7,000 years ago and active cultivation in the Mediterranean basin beginning around 5,000 years ago. With the emergence of health-conscious food trends, hummus has become a popular dish for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike, and is a staple of modern Middle Eastern cuisine. BABAFOODS hummus keeps original basic recipe to maintain the best nutrition just adding some modern flavors to share some fun way of having great diet!

Features
The nutritional value of traditional hummus is derived mainly from its chief ingredient, chickpeas, also called garbanzo beans. Other contributing ingredients are olive oil, lemon juice, sesami tahini, cumin and garlic. Variations of BABAFOODS hummus can include artichoke, red peppers, sundried tomato, avocado, kalamata olives, or cilantro.

Significance
Chickpeas themselves are absolutely low in fat and full of protein. Adding Olive oil, rich in monounsaturated fat, a type that is actually heart healthy. Thus, not only does olive oil contribute its unique flavor to hummus, it also imparts significant health benefits relative to creamy or other high-fat alternatives.

Benefits
Hummus is a natural, vegan food that can be a part of virtually any diet. Chickpeas, like most beans, are an excellent source of fiber that digests slowly and keeps blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly, making them ideal for individuals with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia. Combined with rice or whole grains, they provide a complete protein. Chickpeas also contain molybdenum, a trace mineral that helps the body detoxify sulfites, as well as iron and manganese, which are essential for healthy blood and high energy.

ENJOY AND SMILE! BON APETIT!!
