Chickpeas are high in protein and fiber, which makes them a filling food that may help lower appetite and reduce calorie intake at meals. Chickpeas are an excellent source of protein, which has a variety of health benefits, ranging from weight management to bone health. They are a great choice for individuals who avoid animal products.

Chickpeas contain a moderate amount of calories and are high in fiber and protein, all properties that play a role in weight management. Chickpeas have a low glycemic index (which is a marker of how rapidly your blood sugar rises after eating a food) and are also a great source of fiber and protein, all properties that support healthy blood sugar control.

Chickpeas are high in fiber, which benefits your digestion by increasing the number of healthy bacteria in your gut and helping waste flow efficiently through your digestive tract. Chickpeas have many characteristics that may help prevent some chronic illnesses, including heart disease, cancer and diabetes.
