Ah!Zeefa ® is a premium product. Heres what you wont find in it: Added Water – many hummus makers add water to their product to bring down cost, diluting their product Lesser Oils – soybean oil, canola oil, vegetable oil… again, to cut costs (and corners) other manufacturers use cheaper oils in their dips. Berhanu uses only pure olive oil. Added Sugar – this flavor crutch is not needed in Ah!Zeefa; our simple, tasty ingredients stand on their own MSG – a widely-used flavor enhancer, to which many people are allergic, is no where to be found in Ah!Zeefa Gluten – another common allergen (found in wheat and other grains) is not used Cholesterol – enjoy Ah!Zeefa knowing it is a cholesterol free food
