  • Ingredients

    Organic Chickpeas. Proudly 100% Australian grown.

  • Description

    Organic besan flour is a protein-rich, gluten-free flour, stone milled from ground dried chickpeas. Besan flour is also known as chickpea flour, garbanzo flour or gram flour in recipes. It is pale yellow in colour with a strong nutty flavour, making it popular in savoury dishes and Indian cooking. It is often used as a binding or thickening agent in many recipes and used widely in Indian and Middle Eastern cooking for pancakes, dumplings, pakoras and bhajis. It can also be used as a facial scrub.

    Besan flour has a distinct nutty flavour that allows it to be mixed with very few ingredients to create delicious tasting and simple Indian and Middle Eastern dishes. It is low in unsaturated fat, cholesterol and sodium, and rich in nutrients such as magnesium, copper, folate and manganese. It is an excellent substitute for other flours when the nutritional benefits of besan flour are desired.

    Organic farming uses the best of traditional agriculture and responsiveness to the land to create biodiversity and environmental balance; a sustainable approach free from artificial intervention.

  • Allergen Statement

    We pack a wide range of natural food products on shared equipment including nuts, seeds, grains and cereals. This includes sesame, peanuts, soy and gluten. While we do our best to avoid any kind of cross contamination, this can sometimes occur and therefore any of our products may contain traces of nuts and gluten.

  • Organic Disclaimer

    TWC source this product as Certified Organic (spec sheets available on request). We then pack it down in a yet-to-be-certified organic facility. This means it can't be sold as Certified Organic (just 'Organic'). We're in the process of gaining our very own organic certification and expect this will be complete by mid 2019. It's then that these very same high quality organic products will regain their 'certified' status on the TWC website. Some old labels may say Certified Organic on them. The product is no different whatsoever and the pack down area uses all organic cleaning agents. Clear as mud? ;)
