Are roasted chickpeas low FODMAP?
Roasted chickpeas are not typically considered low FODMAP. FODMAPs are a group of sugars that are not completely digested or absorbed in our intestines and can trigger symptoms in people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). A low FODMAP diet often excludes many legumes, including chickpeas, due to their high levels of oligosaccharides. However, canned chickpeas in small quantities (about 1/4 cup) can be considered low FODMAP as the canning process helps to remove some of these sugars.
Are roasted chickpeas keto?
No, roasted chickpeas are not keto. The ketogenic diet aims to limit your carb intake to about 20 to 50 grams of carbs. One cup of roasted chickpeas contains about 65 grams of carbohydrates, which is quite high for a keto diet. However, in smaller amounts, chickpeas can fit into a more flexible keto diet as they do offer a source of protein and fiber.
