Chickpeas offer various health benefits and are increasingly being used to prepare a grain-free flour. Chickpea flour is gluten-free, dense, and a rich source of dietary fiber and protein.

Global chickpea market: Increasing consumption of chickpeas as a snack
In many parts of the world, chickpea is increasingly being used and accepted as an easy to make and healthy snack. Chickpeas are a rich source of fiber, folate, protein, and zinc. Chickpea snacks are easy to prepare at home by adding spices and are easily available in the market as ready-to-eat (RTE) products. In Turkey, roasted Kabuli chickpeas are salted and spiced with cloves and sometimes coated to make snacks known as Leblebi. In South Asia, especially in India, chickpea snacks are quite popular. Therefore, the growing consumption of chickpeas in different forms around the world is expected to drive the growth of the global chickpea market during the forecast period.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on food, “Apart from increasing consumption of chickpeas as a snack, other factors boosting the growth of the global chickpea market are expanding base of the vegan population, growing online grocery shopping trends, and increasing awareness of the health promoting benefits of chickpea.”
