HEALTHY LIVING WITH HUMMUS

Did you know that only 2 heaping spoonfuls of hummus a day will fulfill your bean recommendation for the week? Research shows that diets with increased bean consumption are associated with reduced risk of chronic diseases like heart disease1, 2, diabetes and obesity3.

It's a Bean...
It's a Vegetable...
It's Sabra Hummus!

TRADITIONAL HUMMUS IS A WHOLESOME, SIMPLE PACKAGE OF BEANS + SEEDS. HERE ARE THE BASICS:

CHICKPEAS

Also known as garbanzo beans, these tan, round legumes are boiled and mashed to make hummus.

TAHINI

This paste, made from lightly roasted and ground sesame seeds, is a dip on its own as well as a key ingredient in traditional hummus.

OIL, GARLIC AND SPICES

Olive or vegetable oil create a smooth, creamy consistency. Garlic and salt round out the flavor.

DELIVERS FIBER, A NUTRIENT OF CONCERN

Hummus helps boost fiber intake, especially when paired with veggies or whole grains. The mix of soluble and insoluble fiber supports heart health, and the combination of protein, complex carbohydrates and fiber aid in weight management and blood glucose control.

PACKAGES PLANT PROTEIN AND HEALTHY FATS IN A UNIQUE RECIPE

Dietary guidance highlights the benefits of balancing plant protein foods as part of a healthful dietary pattern. Healthy, unsaturated fats have been shown to sustain cardiovascular health. Specifically in hummus:

Chickpeas contribute fiber, protein, iron and B vitamins.

Tahini contributes poly- and monounsaturated fats, fiber, protein and minerals.

BOOSTS DIET QUALITY

Hummus offers a package of nutrients that can improve nutritional value of meals and snacks, especially when used in place of other calorie-laden spreads, toppings or ingredients. Hummus pairs well with many foods and flavors, making it easy to increase intakes of vegetables, fruits and whole grains.

COMPLEMENTS SPECIAL DIETARY NEEDS

Sabra hummus is a vegetarian and gluten free food that fits into diets of people with common food allergies. Most of our hummus flavors are nonGMO.
