Gram flour is flour made from ground chana dal, a legume otherwise known as chickpeas. It is also known as chickpea flour, garbanzo flour, or besan. Used in many countries, it is a staple ingredient in Indian and Bangladeshi cuisines, and, in the form of a paste with water or yoghurt, a popular facial exfoliant in the Indian Subcontinent. Moreover, when mixed with an equal proportion of water, can be used as an egg-replacer in vegan cooking. Gram flour contains a high proportion of carbohydrates but no gluten. Despite this, in comparison to other flours, it has a relatively high proportion of protein.
In other parts of South and Southeast Asia the flour is used to make bonda, pakoras, papadums, onion bhajis, Burmese tofu. It is used in Italian cuisine to make farinata and in French cuisine to make socca.
If parboiled potatoes are rolled in the flour prior to roasting they take on a golden colour and a crisp texture. This food is low in Saturated Fat, and very low in Cholesterol and Sodium. It is also a good source of Dietary Fiber, Magnesium and Copper, and a very good source of Folate and Manganese.

The price is great, delivered as expected and the product is very good, after all that is what matters the most. I love all the delicious foods that I can make with the Chick peas Flour, not sure why the rest of the world don't use it in their food more beside humus and falafels ? Thanks, I'd buy this again... but I think this 4lb will last me long time.
Great service and product

I was a little nervous about ordering from here, I wasn';t able to reach anyone via phone and that raised some suspicion. However, after emailing them they were able to get in touch with me to assist me. The delivery was quick and the product was very well packaged. I would order from here again.
