Steamed Chickpea Flour (CP100-S) is made with a proprietary steaming process that stabilizes the flour, eliminates the raw ‘beany’ flavor, and results in a very nice flour that can be used at high inclusion rates as the primary flour or to increase protein or fiber in many baked products and snacks.
The excellent functionality of CP100-S as a flour has surprised us, as we have spent the last year doing applications work on everything from brownies and muffins to instant hummus and even chickpea milk. We have a growing list of industrial formulations available–please call and let us know what you’re interested in.
The flavor is very mild and pleasant, compared with other raw chickpea flour products available in the market. At 18% protein, CP100-S is a great way to boost the amount of plant-based proteins in your product.
FEATURES and BENEFITS
Steamed Chickpea Flour is very versatile, and can be used as an alternative to wheat flour in many baked products. It is considered a “minimally-processed” ingredient, with nutritional qualities equivalent to whole chickpeas. CP100-S plays well into clean label products, is high in fiber, iron, and folate, and is an excellent source of plant-based protein.
You can use CP100-S in a variety of products, including:
- Sweet baked goods
- Gluten-free baked goods
- Creme cake
- Hearth bread
- Waffles and pancakes
- Snacks and crackers
- Extruded snacks
- Soups and gravies (good thickening properties)

With the amount of starches that naturally occur in chickpeas, we expect that before long, someone will be using CP100-S to make Chickpea-based pudding or yogurt. It’s that tasty, and it’s that functional!
