Hummus. One of the best foods on the planet.

Hummus. One of the best foods on the planet.


Here are 10 key reasons:

  1. Suitable for many people, regardless of popular eating practices (VG, VE, GF, DF)

  2. Hummus has a very low glycemic index, making this dish a staple choice for anyone managing blood sugar #diabetes.

  3. Great source of vegetarian protein, a macronutrient that can fall behind in a vegetarian/vegan diet.

  4. Packed full of nutrients, keeping you fuelled and satisfied.

  5. Tahini - a key ingredient, is very high in calcium, an essential mineral for bone support and general health.

  6. A great source of fibre, supporting a healthy digestive system.

  7. High in monounsaturated fat, including both the chickpeas and the olive oil. Monounsaturated fats are linked with heart health, weight loss and improved skin, hair and nails.

  8. Chickpeas provide a good source of iron, a mineral that can be scarce in those with anaemia.

  9. High levels of antioxidants, which reduce oxidative damage within the body and support a stronger immune system.
