The article provides information about chickpeas, a Spanish food also known as garbanzos. Chickpeas are grown in India, Turkey, Mexico, Ethiopia ad Pakistan. It is a source of protein in Indian and African cuisines and a main ingredient in hummus. Chickpeas are high in insoluble and soluble fibers, molybdenum, manganese, and trace minerals. Researchers found that the fiber, mineral and vitamin profile of chickpeas prevents death from heart disease.
