The popularity of hummus has grown massively among Finnish consumers during the past years, and it seems to have established a permanent position on the Finnish market. Our hummus is freshly prepared by Baba Foods, which is one of the pioneers of hummus production in Finland.
Together with the chefs of Baba Foods, we have crafted a recipe that offers the customer an authentic experience, while the serving style is inspired by traditional hummus restaurants around the globe. We do not use any additives or preservatives in our food.
It is safe to say that Hummus can be considered a health food.
To begin with, the nutritional values of chickpeas are impressive. They are rich in almost everything humans need in their daily diet, including the following.

Chickpeas are also low in fat, and almost all their fat is composed of healthy unsaturated fatty acids.
In addition, sesame seeds, which form approximately 20% of our hummus, have very similar but even more impressive nutritional values.
Hummus is also vegan, thus fitting perfectly almost every type of diet.
