Artesa® Chickpea Flour

The New Taste of Gluten-Free

It’s Time To Change The Way You Think About Pulse Flours.

Interest in pulse flours has grown recently as a healthy approach to replacing wheat (and other) flours for the fast-growing gluten-free market. One of the major issues with pulse flours, however, is the strong flavor they convey in formulations. The manufacturing process for Artesa Chickpea Flour removes much of the oil from the finished product – producing a clean, neutral flavor. Combined with the fine particle size achieved from proprietary milling, Artesa Chickpea Flour delivers taste, texture and mouthfeel comparable to wheat flours.

Fantastic Formulating Functionality

Applications testing with Artesa Chickpea Flour has shown many desirable functional properties – particularly in the production of gluten-free formulations, which often require multiple ingredients and processing workarounds to meet texture and taste goals. This makes Artesa ideal for difficult to formulate gluten-free products such as pasta, leavened bread, flatbreads and pastries. Artesa Chickpea Flour excels in the production of extruded products like pasta and can be used in non-allergenic, egg-free formulations while maintaining mouthfeel.

You probably wont find a more sustainable raw material than the chickpea.

Good for people. Good for the planet.

Chickpeas create their own fertilizer by fixing nitrogen from the air – which means significantly lower use of chemical fertilizers and healthier soils. They also require significantly lower use of water and pesticides in production. Want more? Chickpeas have the lowest carbon footprint of any pulses. There are no GMO chickpeas – and probably never will be.

INSIGHTS

MADE IN NORTH AMERICA

Nutriati’s chickpeas are grown in North America – in the United States and Canada. Production of the final product takes place on the US Eastern Seaboard – unlike many other pulse flours that are extracted in China. Nutriati works with a select group of farmers to supply Artesa chickpeas – developing long-term relationships that will help them improve the profitability of their farms.

HIGHLY SUSTAINABLE

The chickpea gets good marks when it comes to sustainability. Chickpeas create their own fertilizer by fixing nitrogen from the air – which lowers greenhouse gases, significantly lowers need for chemical fertilizers and creates healthier soils for future planting. They are an excellent rotational crop. They also require significantly lower use of water and pesticides in production. Chickpeas have the lowest carbon footprint of any protein starting materials and there is no such thing as a GMO chickpea. We like to say that Artesa Chickpea Flour is Good for People and Good for the Planet!

ADDING ARTESA TO IMPROVE GLUTEN FREE FORMULATIONS AND TASTE

Replacing wheat in gluten-free products often requires multiple ingredients – some not so label-friendly – and processing workarounds to meet quality, texture and taste goals. This makes Artesa ideal for difficult to formulate gluten-free applications such as pasta, leavened bread, flatbreads and pastries.

With functionality potential that rivals that of semolina flour and even modified food starch in some instances, Artesa Chickpea Flour also excels in the production of extruded products like pasta and can be used in non-allergenic, vegan, egg-free formulations while maintaining product integrity and mouthfeel. It also features good oil and water binding properties useful in products like soups, sauces and gravies. Nutriati is committed to working with food product developers with applications expertise in re-working traditional products or creating entirely new concepts. The company has an Artesa Imaginarium Project that looks to build bridges with chefs and food scientists to explore the possibilities of this new ingredient.

“Artesa is unique due to its soft texture,
versatility, high-protein nutritional value and best of all: flavor. I look for tasty ingredients that are easy to use. Artesa provides both, while sneaking in a nutritious element. That’s an all-around win in my kitchen.”
Liz Kiniry Chef
When I started working with Artesa Chickpea Flour,
I realized I could get a gluten-free bread that tasted great and had the other sensory characteristics I was looking for. Without adding stabilizers. You can’t do that with other pulse flours
