Also known as gram or chana flour, chickpea flour is a good source of protein and fibre. It is a staple ingredient in Mediterranean, Indian and Middle Eastern cuisines for dishes such as falafel, pakora, and papadums. This flour has no additives and is non-GMO.
Substitute up to 25% chickpea flour in recipes for a nutritional boost, especially when baking with low protein gluten-free flours like white rice flour or tapioca flour. When mixed with an equal proportion of water, it can be used as an egg replacer in vegan cooking.
