So I was wondering if grains are the primary cause of someone's acne, would hummus have a significant effect as well? The hummus is made of chickpeas, garlic, sesame seeds and olive oil. I have been eating about one serving of it.

It doesn't contain any grains, but does contain other seeds which are harder to digest than say, a banana. Do you have digestion issues? Do you have problems with grains? If so, you may want to avoid all seeds for a few months while consuming healing foods.

Some people also may have problems with legumes and things like chickpeas and lentils. Try it out- you'll probably notice if you're sensitive to it pretty soon after. Other than that, hummus is a very healthy treat
