    Is it possible to leach Chickpeas (aka Garbanzo beans) ?


    There is a book titled “What you need to know about Healthy Living with Demineralization” by Wendy Lou Jones, MS, BA. I ordered a copy from Amazon.com several years ago. The book gives instructions for demineralizing foods and there is a section on legumes. Although chickpeas are not included I believe there would be reduction of potassium and phosphorus. It seems to be a tedious process which would probably be adopted by the most diciplined patient.

    We used to have some nice roast dish or a home-smoked ham – and it wwas always svreed with lentils in our family, as the New Years Day meal. Lentils = lots of money in the new year of course.Happy New Year!
