There are a lot of hummus brands out there. Some people use them to make Hummus dips, while others like to focus on blending them in to make a classic mild salsa, or a spicy fresh guacamole. Traditionally, hummus plates are topped off with a small drizzle of olive oil, chopped parsley or a sprinkling of paprika. Like most hummus, the best of the hummus brands will contain no cholesterol or saturated fats, which makes it a perfect food for those that are actively dieting.

Today, hummus brands can be used to make a wide variety of different foods. Some of the recipes using hummus can be used for breakfast, lunch or dinners! According to the market researching professionals in the Symphony IRI Group, hummus was just a $5 million business, led by only a small group of companies just 15 years for. Today, these hummus brands and their industry dominate the category of “refrigerated flavored spreads.”

The Association of Lebanese Industrialists in 2008 petitioned the Lebanese Ministry of Economy and Trade to obtain protected status from the European Commission, wishing that hummus be labeled as a uniquely Lebanese food. Fans of the best hummus brands may also be fascinated to learn that the Guinness World Record for the biggest dish of hummus ever prepared included an astounding 8 tons of boiled chick peas, 2 tons of lemon juice, 2 tons of tahini and 154 lbs of olive oil!
