Great news, Victor Food™s Hummus is the lowest calorie hummus in the market by far. Spokane Produce did a nutritional study and found that most of our flavors are at 40 calories per serving (2 table spoons) as compared to 60 to 100 calories for some national brands. Victor’s Hummus™ is also 1/3 of the fat content of most brands. This is a huge difference.
The only products we have with 50 calories per TBLS are the Chocolate H’Mousse® and the Toasted Sesame. We are also finding that we are also lower in Sodium. The reason our products are low calorie is because we do not include fillers in our recipes.
Most Hummus manufacturers include soy, canola and or regular highly processed olive oil as fillers. These oils are cheap and help them bulk up their products to make more profits. These oils are not needed in hummus. They are only fillers for profit.
I usually don’t count calories, but I still care where these calories come from. We use a trace amount of extra virgin olive oil that you can see toward the bottom of the ingredient list for our own processing reasons. Please read the labels before you buy.
