Natural Awakenings New York City

Authentic Hummus from Middle East … New Jersey

As Americans have developed a growing taste for the international, hummus has become a staple in grocery stores from coast to coast. But to find truly authentic hummus, New Yorkers still look to the Middle East— middle eastern New Jersey, that is.

Located in Long Branch, New Jersey, Abraham’s Natural Foods is a family company that hand-makes hummus and baba ghannouj in small batches, using fresh, high quality ingredients.

Louis Fellman, the engine behind Abraham’s, had 10 years’ experience in the natural food industry when he launched his Middle Eastern food product line in 1987. Word spread quickly about the taste and quality of his hummus, and soon Abraham’s Middle Eastern Foods expanded. Its products can now be found in Fairway Market and Whole Foods, as well as many gourmet and natural food stores across the tri-state area.

“We’re passionate about creating healthy foods,” Fellman says. “Our hummus has the industry’s lowest calories, fat and sodium, without a drop of artificial preservatives. We use raw apple cider vinegar in every batch to get that wonderful zingy taste and for all the incredible health benefits.”

Unlike other companies, Abraham’s does not add any oils, such as canola or soy, to its hummus. “We only use healthy, nutritious tahini,” Fellman says. Abraham’s hummus comes in a variety of flavors, from traditional and salt-free to roasted red pepper, green olive and herbs, parsley and onion, and hot and spicy, among others.
