Chickpeas are part of an extremely fast growing market. Vegetable, pulse and bread chips (which includes chickpeas) saw the highest value growth in 2018, of 40%, reaching £91million in market value. This growth is part of a consistent trend, with 130.8% volume growth in sales between 2013 and 2018, with forecasted further growth of 59.5% by 2023, representing £229.1 million in sales by 2023. This data is correct according to the Euromonitor International report on Savoury Snacks in the United Kingdom. Our chickpeas are an excellent vegan and gluten-free source of protein and fibre. They also contain exceptional levels of iron, vitamin B-6, and magnesium, amongst other key vitamins and minerals.

But that’s not all. Here are some more health benefits that you should know about:

Gluten Free

The most common reason for a gluten free diet in the UK is coeliac disease, which affects around 1 in 100 people. It is also estimated that 500,000 people are going undiagnosed. But there are other reasons why you would decide to go gluten free, and we at Truede wanted to cater for that.

GM Free

GM-free products or crops are products or crops that do not contain any genetically modified material. Because we only use natural ingredients which aren’t genetically modified in any way, we can say with confidence that our Chickpeas are GM Free. Our Chickpeas are also halal friendly.
