Australian Chickpea Farmers See Growth Potential In Chickpea Snacks

September 28, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
More than 95 percent of Australia’s chickpea crop is exported overseas, but there is growing demand in the country for legume products as a healthy protein source. With that in mind, the West Australia farming cooperative Ord River District Coop has teamed up with food wholesaler Gourmet & More (Perth) to create and distribute the state's first locally grown chickpea snack range. Following three years of university research and several consumer studies, ORDCO has settled on a suite of gluten-free, high-protein products including sweet and savory roasted chickpea snacks, ready-to-eat pre-cooked chickpea pouches, and chickpea flour.[Image Credit: © Alex Dante frim Pixabay]
