Medium Chickpeas 'Dikotylon' 500g
Originally cultivated in the Mediterranean, chickpeas are a very important, nutrient-dense food in the Greek diet providing rich content of protein, dietary fiber, folate, and certain dietary minerals, such as iron and phosphorus. They also contain calcium, potassium, B-complex vitamins and vitamin K.
The high fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin B-6 content all support heart health. Chickpeas contain significant amounts of fiber, which helps lower the total amount of cholesterol in the blood, thereby decreasing the risk of heart disease. Research shows that including chickpeas in the diet lowers the amount of low-density lipoprotein, or bad cholesterol, in the blood.
Maintaining a low-sodium (low-salt) intake is essential for maintaining a low blood pressure, however increasing potassium intake may be just as important because of its vasodilation effects. According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, fewer than 2 percent of United States adults meet the daily 4,700-milligram recommendation.
What distinguishes chickpeas from all other legumes is the excellent quality of the containing proteins, since they provide the essential amino acids for the human body, especially the amino acid methionine.
