Raw Humus

Raw Humus

Introduction

This humus is completely raw which triples the health benefit of eating Chickpeas (Garbanzo beans). Our recipe is a good source of cholesterol-lowering soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. Chickpeas will stabilize blood sugar levels after a meal, making these beans a perfect choice for people with diabetes, hypoglycemia, or insulin resistance.

Garbanzo beans (chickpeas) provide an excellent source of molybdenum. They are a
very good source of folic acid, fiber, and manganese. They are also a good source of
protein, as well as minerals such as iron, copper, zinc, and magnesium. As a good
source of fiber, garbanzo beans can help lower cholesterol and improve blood sugar
levels.
