Production & Sourcing
Organic chickpea flour, also known as gram flour or besan, is made through a straightforward process that involves cleaning, milling, and packaging. Here’s a simple explanation of how it’s made:
Cleaning: The process begins with cleaning raw organic chickpeas to remove any impurities like dirt, debris, or foreign particles. This step ensures that only clean and safe chickpeas move forward in the process.
Milling: The cleaned chickpeas are then ground into a fine powder using a mill or grinder. This grinding process breaks down the chickpeas into small particles, creating chickpea flour.
Sifting: After milling, the chickpea flour is often sifted to remove any larger particles or lumps, ensuring a smooth and consistent texture.
