Chickpeas And Chickpea Flour

Chickpeas And Chickpea Flour

At Living Sky Grains, we love our chickpeas. Also known as garbanzo beans, chickpeas are high in protein and fiber and provide excellent nutritional value, easy storage and cooking options, and important regenerative properties on our farm. 

 

Chickpeas and the flour that they produce are rich in vitamins and minerals. They are naturally gluten and cholesterol free, low-allergen, low sodium and low fat. Chickpeas also contain phytochemicals which may reduce cancers and diseases and have a low glycemic index for those who are concerned about diabetes. This legume can be stored indefinitely and easily cooked. Chickpeas are also used on the Living Sky Grains farm to boost soil nitrogen naturally, supporting a broader biodiversity above and below ground, supporting our regenerative agriculture practices.


To create our chickpea flour, we use our own Unifine flour mill. The cylindrical Unifine mill uses ultra-high speed rotors to pulverize the chickpeas in a single pass. The process requires no use of water, keeps a cool temperature to reduce charring, grinds the chickpeas down to the same fine particle size, preserving micronutrients and high fiber, and effectively produces chickpea flour.
