Probiotic Chickpea Granola

Sweet Heat

 

Product can only be purchased at Whole Foods
CHICKPEA GRANOLA Why nuts, not grains? Nuts have high nutritional value and contain good fats when compared to grains. It’s better for you and, not to mention, it’s a deliciously NUTTY adventure.

When it comes to nutrition - 'superior' is a good word. 

We stole chickpeas from hummus and brought them to granola, because it's about time to innovate this category. We were star struck by chickpea's diversity and nutritional wealth.

Besides food, we also love science and peeked at many studies to create a nutritionally superior granola, which led to a discovery of the powerful pairing of chickpeas and nuts. The pairing so perfect, we can't stop raving about it.

The perfect combination of healthy fats, Omega 3s from nuts, paired up with soluble and insoluble fibers of chickpeas — create a satiating effect! Probiotics are no longer alone to offer our guts some digestive benefits. Insoluble fibers from chickpeas step in to the scene and help with an overall gut health. The mechanism is pretty simple, but so beneficial. Insoluble fibers remain undigested all the way down to the colon. They are metabolized by bacteria in the colon to produce short chain fatty acids (SCFAs). These SCFAs provide fuel to the cells that line our intestinal wall and repair them.


Over 90% of all natural probiotics in our bodies live in our small intestine, large intestine and colon. 

One key to intestinal health is maintaining a balance of both helpful and harmful bacteria. In the modern era of acidic diets, antibiotic use, stress, illnesses, medications and hormonal changes can disrupt intestinal balance.Not all probiotics strains are the same. Different strains offer different benefits and some probiotic strains survive manufacturing processes, shelf life and digestive transit better than others. 

We use Bacillus Coagulans BC30 which is a a powerful probiotic strain. Research and clinical practice has shown strong evidence for B. coagulans’s ability to fight off invading viruses & pathogens. Bacillus coagulans typically lives in the digestive tract and has also been shown to decrease IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) abdominal pain and bloating symptoms. This probiotic is extremely hardy and can easily survive stomach acid to colonize the entire GI tract. This probiotic was first discovered around 1930.
