Fresh Hummus Powder

In January 2012 we launched Fresh Hummus Powder, the easy to use ingredient to make your own Hummus!

Chickpea is the basic ingredient for Hummus, a food dip or spread made from cooked, mashed chickpeas, blended with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic. Hummus is one of the oldest foods known in the world. It originated over 7000 years ago and is becoming increasingly popular among many populations in the world. Hummus is the Arabic word for Chickpea, also known as the Garbanzo bean.

 

Traditional Hummus

Preparing traditional Hummus is a time-consuming process. First you need to soak the dry chickpeas overnight for 10 to 12 hours in fresh water with salt or soda. Then the chickpeas have to boil steadily for two hours. Finally you can use them for preparing the hummus according to your own recipe.

Codrico Fresh Hummus Powder

Made from fresh Chickpeas and produced through a specially developed cooking process, Codrico Rotterdam introduces this new ingredient for making your own traditional Hummus.
The hummus instant powder from Codrico Rotterdam provides useful benefits such as:

  • No need for cooking and soaking of the chickpeas
  • Energy, logistics (stocks) and time savings.
  • Easy dosage
  • Adding your own flavor
  • No segregation of water/oil
  • Excellent properties, easy to dip and spread
  • Feels good in the mouth, a soft, creamy dip

As if you made it yourself! (and you did…)
