When I saw asthma, I thought you may also have an issue with sulfites (which is a type of preservative / food additive). Also, if your digestion is having issues due to ncgi or celiac, etc. then sometimes raw fruits and veggies can cause problems. They're a bit harder to digest. Same goes for chickpeas, they're higher in fiber than other beans.
Also, if you're eating canned chickpeas, they most likely have added sulfites. I cook beans on a pretty regular basis, after soaking for several hours. I usually use a pressure cooker, and today I'm going to make some in my new crock pot. The kinds of beans I eat most are great northern and navy beans. I've recently added black beans, too. I'm going to re-test pinto beans again soon. I also avoid all soy.
Here's a link that's a good starting place for sulfite information: http://www.readingta...com/nosulfites/
