Organic Chickpea Flour is a dense flour which adds texture and flavour to baking.
Gluten Free Organic chickpea flour (also known as gram flour) is a delicious alternative to traditional wheat flours as it is naturally gluten free. This tasty organic flour is milled from whole dried chickpeas.
Because chickpea flour is ground down from the whole pea it contains the same nutritional value as chickpeas themselves. Just one 25g serving contains high levels of folate and is a source of Copper and Manganese. This makes organic chickpea flour a great choice nutritionally and it contains more fibre and protein than wheat flour.

It also combines well with other flours such as tigernut flour, almond flour or buckwheat flour.
