Our Philosophy

Mediterranean cooking is about respecting the integrity of our ingredients. A dip of hummus should unleash a vibrant medley of lemony and nutty flavors, with nothing unnecessary or artificial throwing off this perfect harmony. A bite of tabouli should be crisp and bright, igniting the taste buds to the fresh and colorful ingredients that comprise this beautiful salad.

At Noujaim’s Mediterranean Cuisine, maintaining the integrity of our ingredients during the cooking process and throughout the supply chain journey is a responsibility we take very seriously – from how we source our ingredients to the way we manufacture and package our products. Just as we’ve always done in our restaurants, we use local ingredients whenever possible and are unwilling to compromise on quality for the sake of efficiency or profit.

We’ve been perfecting our recipes for over 35 years and have worked meticulously to scale up those recipes for widespread distribution, without altering their fundamental composition. It is this unwavering commitment that allows us to deliver authentic Mediterranean cuisine unlike anything that exists on the market or store shelves today.

What’s in Your Hummus?

Hummus is perhaps the most pure and sacred of all Mediterranean fare, with just a few simple ingredients – chief among them, carefully selected chickpeas and the best-quality tahini – coming together to create this rich and savory classic. But if you’ve ever read the ingredients label on a container of hummus at the grocery store, you might notice more than a few suspect ingredients – things like vinegar, guar gum and hydrogenated oils.

At Noujaim’s, we’ve not only mastered the art of hummus-making to create the best ever to hit the market, but we’ve done it without any additives, preservatives or other unsavory characters. If we did, it wouldn’t be the Best Hummus Ever – and it wouldn’t be ours.

While this story is specific to hummus, it’s a philosophy that applies to our entire product line. By sourcing the highest-quality, best-tasting ingredients, we’re truly able to let the flavors shine.

Benefits of the Mediterranean Way of Eating

The Mediterranean diet – packed full of legumes, vegetables, olive oil, nuts and seeds – is one of the healthiest in the world. For the past several consecutive years, U.S. News & World Report has ranked the Mediterranean diet as the Best Overall Diet as well as the Best Diet for Healthy Eating, Easiest Diet to Follow, Best Diet for Diabetes, Best Plant Based Diet and Best Heart-Healthy Diet.

A diverse body of research cited by Everyday Health suggests the Mediterranean diet may:

Boost mood and ease depression

Aid in the prevention and management of type 2 diabetes

Prevent certain types of cancer

Reduce the risk of heart disease

Prevent cognitive decline and lower the risk of Alzheimer’s disease

Promote sustainable weight loss

As the health benefits of Mediterranean eating come further to light and consumers become increasingly conscious of the foods they eat and feed to their families, we are committed to making this great-tasting and great-for-you cuisine more widely available and easily accessible.
