Ask the person next to you if they think nut spreads are healthy, and they’ll probably tell you no, they’re very fatty. This, in part, is true. They do have a high fat content. Unlike other foods that are high in fat, though, spreads like The Amazing Chickpea contain primarily healthy fats.
These healthy fats can benefit cardiovascular health, while also reducing the risk of type two diabetes and heart disease. They can also aid in the fight against obesity, as nut butter spreads are incredibly satiating – you won’t be looking for something else to eat five minutes later!
More to Love
Our Amazing Chickpea Spread offers more potential health benefits, too. Chickpeas are a good source of phosphate, iron, Vitamin K, zinc, manganese, magnesium and calcium, which help to maintain bone strength and structure. In short, they’re a superfood.
They’re also a rare source of potassium, which can help lower blood pressure. It’s thought that under 2% of adults in the US reach their daily recommended intake of potassium.
Chickpeas are full of insoluble fiber, which also means they’re a fantastic tool in maintaining digestive health, helping to prevent constipation. Further, being high in protein, they can contribute to muscular improvement – for those of you hitting the weights!
