The data article refers to the paper “Nutritional, physico-chemical and functional characterization of a global chickpea collection” . The data are referred to a germplasm collection of 57 chickpea accessions from the ex situ repositories of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Department of Plant, Soil and Food Science of the University of Bari, Italy (DiSSPA), and the Institute of Biosciences and Bioresources of the Italian National Research Council (CNR-IBBR). Thirty-six accessions, belonging to desi and kabuli types, were representative of the geographic distribution of chickpea global cultivation, whereas twenty-one accessions, referable to the Apulian black type, derived from different area of the Apulian region, south of Italy. All the accessions were grown at the experimental farm “P. Martucci” of the University of Bari “Aldo Moro” (41°01′22.1″ N 16°54′21.0″ E) during the growing season 2017–2018, according to a randomized block design with two replicates, each replicate formed by 30 individual plants. This article reports the data of the proximate composition, the total bioactive compounds content, the fatty acid composition and the physico-chemical and functional properties of chickpea flour. Information provided in this article can be used by food industry to develop chickpea-based foods and by geneticists for studies of association mapping aimed at the identification of genomic regions controlling the nutritional and technological traits.
