What Are Fava Beans?
Those magic beans which grew overnight into a beanstalk that reached into the clouds were most likely fava beans.
Did you know that fava beans aren’t really beans? They actually belong to the pea family! Unlike their cousin the garbanzo bean (the main ingredient in hummus), fava beans are the only plant rich in the neurotransmitter Dopamine and are much lighter yet richer in favor, protein, !ber, vitamins, and minerals.
What’s Special About ?
We hand craft our old-world Fava Hummus in small batches with slow-cooked fava beans using very
simple, few ingredients just like it was enjoyed over 5000 years ago by the ancient Egyptians.
Who is Fava Inc.?
Based in San Francisco, Fava Inc. sprouted from a little seed in the mind of founder Hattem Nigma, whose favorite food as a
child growing up in Egypt was the delicious fava bean dishes homemade lovingly by his mother and grandmother. Fava Inc.’s
team mission is to share this healthy, light & tasty food with the world! Our Story
Currently, we have two lines of Fava Hummus:
The Green line - creamy in texture and light, minus the pastiness of a regular garbanzo bean hummus.
The Orange line - hearty in texture with a light yet rich, nutty flavor. Very versatile.
We only use the highest quality, natural ingredients such as extra virgin olive oil, Greek Kalamata olives, fresh lemon juice, California-grown garlic, and sea salt.
