  • A , Naturopathic Medicine, answered
    Garbanzo beans can cause a severe allergic reaction in sensitive individuals. They also contain moderate amounts of purines. Since purines can be broken down to form uric acid, and excess accumulation of uric acid may contribute to health problems, such as gout and kidney stones, individuals who are susceptible to purine-related problems may want to limit or avoid intake of garbanzo beans.

    Garbanzo beans also contain large amounts of oxalate. Individuals with a history of oxalate containing kidney stones should avoid over consuming them.
