Chickpeas, like other pulses, are a good source of dietary fibre. This is present mainly as the soluble type of fibre, which is helpful in reducing high blood cholesterol levels.

Chickpeas contain a range of nutrients, including protein, which is necessary for bone, muscle, and skin health.

For people who are cutting down on meat consumption, a dish of chickpeas and rice, for example, can contribute a significant amount of protein to the diet. A cup of chickpeas provides almost one-third of an adult’s daily protein needs.

The nutrients in chickpeas may also help prevent a number of health conditions.
