Indian dishes have always been centred around providing nutritious food in a tasty fashion. So when it came to including protein in our diets, we decided to take some chickpeas (Garbanzo) and turn it into something delicious, namely chhole-bhature, kadala curry, chana chaat – you name it! Something that would get (and, eventually, did get) the entire nation digging into the power-packed legume.
Speaking of its additional nutritional value, the high fibre content in Kabuli Chana acts as a bulk laxative and protects the inner lining of the intestine. It has also assisted patients in the treatment of Type-1 diabetes.
Kala Chana contains minerals in huge proportions, namely copper, iron, phosphorus and zinc 25%. Potassium electrolyte in Kala Chana is found in the cell and body fluids. This is how it counters sodium effects on the heart and consequently on the blood pressure.
The Tata Sampann Advantage
Tata Sampann unpolished chickpeas are available in two forms – Kabuli Chana and Kala Chana. These are sourced from farms in Maharashtra, Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh, attributing to its superior taste.
These do not undergo artificial oil, water or leather-polishing procedures to preserve their nutrition. As a result, they contain lesser moisture.
Chana’s nutritional value is retained by our top-of-the-line hygienic processing and packing to give you the best-selected delicious legumes.
