Boutique food brand, Pangkarra Foods, have continued to innovate their product range with the launch of a delicious range of chickpea puffs, made with 100%Australian chickpea flour and natural ingredients.

 

Pangkarra Foods have launched three different flavours- a ‘lemon, lime and chilli’ chickpea puff, ‘mixed herbs’ chickpea puff and ‘smoked paprika’ chickpea puff, catering for the growing healthy snack market. The products will be available in the market as of July 2018, and will be officially launched at the Royal Adelaide Show in September 2018.  

 

Katherine Maitland, Director of Pangkarra Foods said this is the first time a company in Australia has produced a savoury puff made with chickpea flour.

 

“The product itself is quite unique in that there is nothing else like it on the market,” she said. “There are chickpea puffs available overseas, but nothing in Australia. We are excited to present these snacks to the market and anticipate a positive response from consumers.”

 

“The gourmet snack category is continuing to grow, and we wanted to make sure we were well ahead of the market and competitors. The fact that the chickpea puffs are gluten free, nut free, and preservative free, they are meeting the demands of our current customers.”

 

“We were also lucky enough to receive a Food Manufacturing Grant from the South Australian Government to help with the research and development of these chickpea puffs,” she said.

 

Pangkarra chickpea puffs will be available in 90g packs, which are ideal for entertaining with friends, a grab and go snack or healthy treat. The Pangkarra Chickpea Puffs will be available online (pangkarrafoods.com.au), through gourmet shops, IGA’s, Foodlands and independent grocery stores throughout Australia.
