€ 2,90 – € 4,50 VAT included
Chickpea flour is made by grinding the chickpeas grown in Molise and dried in the sun. The flour is yellowish and is used for typical regional dishes such as farinata, cecina, panissa etc…but also for breading. It can be blended with wheat flour to make gnocchi and fresh pasta. Its thickening property makes it particularly suitable for soups and velouté.
Chickpeas are age-old legumes, characterised by the presence of proteins, carbohydrates, fibres, dietary elements (calcium and iron, potassium and phosphorus) and vitamins A, B and C. Often recommended in diets as a replacement for meat, chickpeas have diuretic properties and contain omega-3 essential fatty acids which contribute to preventing cardiovascular diseases.
