DURU Raw Chick Peas (Nohut)
Chickpeas, or garbanzo beans, are the one of the world’s healthiest and oldest cultivated foods, with first roots dating back more than 7,500 years ago to Jericho, Turkey, Greece, Rome and Southern France. Ancient Greeks used chickpeas in desserts and enjoyed them raw. Ancient Romans used garbanzo beans in soups and stews. Chickpeas have been a staple of Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and Indian diets for many millennia: most commonly used in hummus, falafel, soups, stews and Indian dishes like chana masala and dahl. At Duru, we have been offering our customers nutritious, high-quality natural beans and grains since our founding in 1935 by brothers Ziya and Ihsan Duru.
