Chick pea shells pasta are one of newer vegan products that we are beginning to see on the supermarket shelves. The chick pea shells pasta are also gluten free, being made with chick peas, tapioca, pea protein, and xanthan gum. They are very good tasting and hold their shape very well in the cooking process, with cooking time being similar to other pastas. These Banza chick pea shells are promoted prominently on the box as being gluten-free, low glycemic index, non-gmo, and vegan. The cooking instructions are the same as those of other pasta products.
