Health Benefits

 By itself, traditional hummus offers a lot of choice health benefits. Its primary ingredient is the chickpea, an all-natural super food that comes with a whole host of benefits. Super foods are nutrient powerhouses; they pack large amounts of antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins, protein, and minerals into every bite. They help with weight loss, regulate cholesterol, and improve heart health.

The powerhouse chickpea takes healthy eating to new heights with the addition of beets. Beets have unique health properties too. They provide vitamin C, iron, and phosphorous; combined these elements improve the metabolism, boost the immune system and even acts as an aphrodisiac.
