The 4 Best Oil-Free Hummus Brands
Wild Garden Hummus is almost always completely oil-free, so they have a ton of options, and you can be pretty certain you can find a flavor you’ll like without oil. Their Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus has olive oil in it, but it says it right on the front of the label so it would be very hard to miss. They’re also super easy to find in the grocery store! They offer a ton of different flavors, like Black Olive, Roasted Garlic, Jalapeno, and more. They’re available in jars and single-serving packs. Even better, if they don’t sell Wild Garden in your local grocery, you can buy them online!
Oasis Mediterranean Cuisine offers a bunch of different options that are oil-free. They do have some flavors with oil (Fava Bean and Butter Bean), so be sure you’re aware of that when choosing a flavor. However, they do have a lot of different types to try, like Horseradish, Chipotle, and Vegetable. Oasis also has a line of oil-free, tahini-free (a paste made from sesame seeds) hummus that have zero fat content. They’re another brand that is pretty easy to find in a local market, so you should be able to enjoy their oil-free hummus no problem! Have you ever tried Oasis Mediterranean Hommus?
