Take a look below at all the incredible health benefits associated with eating Chickapea pasta as a healthy source of pulses.
Chickapea is chock full of nutrients: complex carbs, thiamine, niacin, magnesium, iron, B vitamins, zinc, phosphorus and antioxidants. It’s also has prebiotics for a healthy gut and folate that aids in healthy pregnancy.
With 23 grams of protein per 3.5 oz (100 g) serving, Chickapea has as much protein as a 3 oz serving of salmon or chicken. Plus, it has 31% of your daily iron intake! Why is protein so important? Protein is made up of amino acids which help to build and repair body tissues, build antibodies and build strong muscles.
Full of Fibre
A single serving of Chickapea boasts 11 grams of fibre–nearly half of your daily recommended value. Fibre helps food move faster through our intestines and allows for better digestion, while enabling the body to absorb more of the nutrients. Fibre also controls the release of glucose into bloodstream. High-fibre foods help us stay regular, maintain a healthy weight, and ensure a healthy heart.
This high-fibre pasta will help lower cholesterol, may decrease heart disease and works to keep your heart healthy. Chickapea pasta also contains potassium, vitamin C and B-vitamins; all beneficial to support heart health.
