a little info
Chickpeas or garbanzo beans (like most legumes) have long been valued for their fiber content
They help with improvement of blood sugar and insulin secretion.
Chickpeas are a food you definitely want to keep on your "digestive support" list—especially if you are focusing on the colon. Between 65-75% of the fiber found in chickpeas is insoluble fiber, and this type of fiber remains undigested all the way down to the final segment of your large intestine (colon).
They help with weight loss, when consuming beans you experience greater food satiety, with experiences of reduced appetite and greater food satisfaction.
Soaking and sprouting chickpea's add 20% more protein to the nutrient.
So make sure to soak them overnight, ad let them sprout before using them!
This will unlock so much more benefits of the beans.
