How we test

Products 

We test hummus products that are available in major supermarket and grocery chains. We focus on 'classic' or 'traditional' versions and exclude hummus products made from more unusual flavour combinations. Price is based on a 200g tub (or closest) bought in Sydney stores (not on special).

Tasting 

Hummus samples are dispensed into coded containers immediately prior to the test. Our experts taste the hummus samples 'blind' (without knowing the brands) and in a randomised order, which is different for each expert.

Scores 

Experts independently judge all hummus products, scoring each sample for appearance, aroma, texture and flavour. The CHOICE Expert Rating is made up of taste 70% (45% flavour, 40% texture, 5% aroma and 10% appearance) and nutrition 30% (based on the product's Health Star Rating, calculated from the details in the nutrition information panel and converted to a percentage).
