Caloric value, carbs and other ingredients:

This salad is very easy and quick to prepare; onion & black pepper is optional. As mentioned in other recipes, chickpeas do not have a very low carbohydrate content, but they do have the “good” carbs – with low glycemic index – and a lot of cholesterol-lowering fibre as well as vitamins and minerals, natural healthy fats and oils and a blend of enzymes.

Again, as mentioned, chick peas do contain about (mostly “good” ones) 23% carbs.
