Garbanzo or Chickpea flour is a staple in Indian and Middle Eastern cooking and is also known as besan or gram flour. Ours is freshly ground from our farm-fresh chickpeas for a deliciously buttery, sweet flavour. Garbanzo Beans: A World Favourite Gluten-free garbanzo or chickpea flour is high in protein, fiber and folate. Common in Indian and Middle Eastern cooking, it adds moisture to recipes. Whole bean flours provide more calcium, iron, potassium, thiamine, riboflavin, folate and dietary fiber than most other gluten-free flours. Recent studies have shown that garbanzo bean fiber can be especially beneficial to the colon. Though garbanzo beans have no gluten, our garbanzo bean flour is not guaranteed to be gluten-free as products containing gluten are ground with the same mills as the garbanzo bean flour. Tasty Tips and Storage Use 7/8 cup to replace 1 cup of wheat flour - about 25% of total flour ratio - in flour mixes and recipes. Bean flours can also be used to replace brown rice in gluten free recipes. Sift bean flours twice before using for lighter baked goods. Store Garbanzo Bean Flour as you would other flours, in our resealable bag or an airtight container in a cool, dry place for six months, or for longer storage, keep in refrigerator or freezer.
