White chickpeas are also known as "Kabuli" chickpeas as they are thought to come from Kabul, Afghanistan when it was first introduced to India and later to Africa. They are the one most commonly thought of when Australians think of Chickpeas.
Chickpeas are a rich source of protein and carbohydrates and are also rich in iron, copper, zinc, phosphorus, potassium, manganese and fibre. They’re also known to improve blood sugar levels due to their low glycemic index. Chickpeas can be sprouted or cooked and eaten cold in salads, or added to soups, stews or curries, made into hummus, or ground and shaped into balls and fried as falafel or cooked with rice or other foods.
Our Chickpeas are provided to us by Graham and Judith Carter in Serviceton, Victoria.

Freshly cooked, Australian-grown organic chickpeas are so much tastier than the canned variety imported from overseas. These are delicious, versatile and very good for you.
Thank you for a very good product
My parents love the chickpeas! Mum made hommus and they were Devine. They had been complaining to me about the chickpeas they were buying in commercial supermarkets, saying they tasted bad. These Organic ones are perfect.
