Why sprouted flour?
Our chickpeas goes through a slow soaking and sprouting period to “pre-digest” the bean, then it’s carefully dried and finely milled with nothing added or removed. This ancient, natural process helps you to better digest and absorb nutrients, and enhances taste and texture. It is naturally gluten-free and high in protein, fibre and iron.
How to use sprouted chickpea flour
Swap sprouted chickpea flour for non-sprouted chickpea flour to make a wide variety of sweet and savoury dishes.It is perfect for falafel, crackers, or as a tasty thickener for soups and sauces. When fried, the batter becomes soft and makes delicious crepes, flatbread or tempura-style vegetables. Sprouted flour tends to be thirsty, so you may need to use more liquid than you would with non-sprouted flour.
