Protein. Eating chickpeas provides you with a vegetarian-friendly source of protein.
Fiber. Opt for chickpeas as a rich source of dietary fiber. Foods rich in fiber help keep your colon healthy. Fiber helps soften stool to fight constipation.
Manganese and Folate. Garbanzo beans also contain vitamins and minerals and significantly boost your intake of manganese and folate. The mineral manganese helps support bone development and wound healing.
