Fabalous is bringing an innovative hazelnut chocolate spread to market, with chickpeas as the primary ingredient.
Indeed, each jar contains 32% chickpeas – equating to 128 dried chickpeas. The legume is high in protein and a source of vitamins, minerals and fibre.
With just eight ingredients – chickpeas, cane sugar, sunflower oil, hazelnut paste, low-fat cocoa powder, cocoa butter, sunflower lecithin and salt – the result is a spread with 81% more protein, 43% less saturated fat and 57% less sugar than the ‘leading brands in the category’, noted Fabalous.
From an environmental standpoint, the cocoa is ethically sourced, and the spread is sold in plastic free packaging.
A 200g jar of Fabalous Organic Hazelnut & Cocoa Spread has an RRP of 200g and is available via Amazon. The company plans to roll it out into delis, cafes and retailers across the UK this year.
