Chickpeas are high in soluble fiber which can help regulate blood sugar. The high amount of fiber can also help keep you full for longer. Chickpeas contain polyunsaturated fats which are good for heart health and inflammation. Lastly, they are high in protein making them an excellent non-meat alternative. However they are not a complete protein because legumes lack an essential amino acid in their amino acid profile. Pairing legumes with grains, though, will ensure you have all the essential amino acids your body needs.
