Nutritional value of store-bought hummus

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I compared the nutritional value of store-bought hummus to Fantastic World Foods mix.

Very disappointing. I guess being able to buy ready-made hummus falls into the "too good to be true category"?

I would say most stuff that is premade isn't the best nutritional option, but may do in a pinch. Cooking your own chick peas from dry and making your own, would be the best bet, then you know exactly what goes into it,and could control the amt of oil and sodium.

I can't make my hummus taste nearly as delicious as the store-bought though.

Store bought hummus' nutritional information varies HUGELY by brand. I remember comparing Sabra and Tribe... big difference. So, shop around and see what suits your needs.

I'm super picky when it comes to hummus. I can eat my own, and I do LIKE it... But I certainly don't LOVE it.

I love Tribe hummus. (I think a couple kinds of Sabra are okay, too. But I tried the spinach and artichoke one and quite literally gagged. Absolutely hideous, and I ADORE artichokes and spinach. I dunno what went wrong on that one, but it's atrocious.)

It shocks me that no matter how much I try, I CANNOT get the taste I love in my own hummus. I've tried everything!

Anyway... I don't eat that much hummus, so I'm not overly concerned with it. If I ever started eating it on a daily basis, I would definitely be eating my own because I can make it much healthier. But as of now? I eat it pretty sparingly. So I buy the large store-bought containers and freeze it in little baggies so I can have little single-serve packets that thaw really fast. Rinse the bags and reuse them, and I feel good about it because I don't waste the bags and I don't waste the hummus by letting it get old and need to be thrown away!
