These Kabuli Sierra Garbanzo Beans are as fresh as you can find! How many other people can tell you the exact field location and date we seeded and harvested? Field Traced - each bag comes with a code you can enter on our website to identify the field the product was grown in and harvest date. We are proud to be Certified Kosher Parve, Non-GMO Project Verified, Food Alliance Certified and carry the quality seal from the USA Dry Pea & Lentil Council. Our food products are NOT Irradiated (an accepted practice that exposes your food to radiation for sterilization). Our Garbanzo Beans will sprout!
