The TRU FLAVORS™ All Natural Tasty Traditional Hummus from Truitt Family Foods is a perfect SuperFoodRx snack packed in a single serving container. It doesn’t need to be refrigerated until you open it, but don’t worry, there are no preservatives in this snack. Garbanzo beans from the Pacific Northwest, tahini, water, and garlic make up most of this all natural hummus. It also contains 2% or less of lemon juice concentrate, lime juice concentrate, salt, sugar, and spice. There is no added oil in this hummus.
We’re always looking for convenient ways that help people get more natural whole foods into their diets. Here’s a company (Truitt Family Foods) that takes natural ingredients and turns them into shelf stable products. Their hummus is creamy, and the garlic and lemon add a zesty kick.
Beans, including garbanzo beans, are one of our original SuperFoods for a reason. They’re high in protein, low in fat, and loaded with vitamins, minerals, and fiber. (Pretty much all of us need to add more fiber to our diets.) Beans also are a nutritious and inexpensive source of lean plant protein. Tahini is made from sesame seeds and contains copper, manganese, fiber, and iron. Garlic is another SuperFood that derives most of its health benefits from the amino acid, allicin. It also contains phosphorus, potassium, zinc, polyphenols, and vitamins B6 and C.
You get four single-serving cups in each box. You can pack this hummus (with a little baggie of whole grain crackers) as a great, protein filled snack for your kids’ school lunches, or you can stash a few in your desk at the office. You can also serve it with carrots, celery, and peppers to turn it into a fun dip.
