Chickpea flour is impressively taking the place of wheat flour on the shelves of Europeans. Made from finely ground chickpeas, it is a staple in the diet of vegans and is often found in the kitchens of those wishing to limit or completely exclude the consumption of wheat flour. Chickpea flour is naturally rich in minerals and vitamins, including vitamin A, E, B and C, as well as iron, fiber and omega 6 acids. What’s more, it benefits the body by supporting bowel function, stabilizing sugar levels and reducing bad cholesterol. Chickpea flour is perfect for Indian dishes such as hummus and falafel, but it can also be used for pancakes and sweet pancakes.
