Crediting Hummus in School Meals
The ingredients used in hummus vary by manufacturer and the Food Buying Guide does not contain hummus due to this variability.
Hummus can credit as either a meat/meat alternate or a vegetable but not both in the same meal. A serving of hummus must contain enough garbanzo beans and/or tahini (sesame paste) to equal the minimum creditable serving for either meat/meat alternates (¼ ounce equivalent) or vegetables (⅛ cup). The rest of the minimum daily serving for each grade group must be met by adding other meat/meat alternates or other vegetables.
Districts are responsible for maintaining documentation that shows how a serving of hummus provides an appropriate amount of each meal pattern component being credited.
