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.


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!

Artesa Textured Chickpea Protein Solutions are manufactured by Nutriati, USA.

“We can do 'amazing things' with Artesa,
including eliminating air pockets and the ability to spread peanut butter on the bread without tearing.
C.B., Lead Product Developer
“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
