Hummus is a thick, creamy dip or spread made from ground chickpeas, tahini (a paste made from sesame seeds), lemon juice, and spices. It is typically smooth and velvety in texture, with a slightly nutty flavor.

In terms of viscosity, hummus is a non-Newtonian fluid, which means that its viscosity changes depending on the shear rate applied to it. When a small shear rate is applied, such as when it is scooped with a spoon or spread with a knife, the viscosity of hummus is relatively high, making it thick and creamy. However, when a larger shear rate is applied, such as when it is churned in a blender or food processor, the viscosity of hummus decreases, making it more fluid.

In terms of its state, hummus is a soft solid at room temperature. It can be scooped or spread like a soft spreadable cheese or peanut butter, but it is not as fluid as a liquid. It can be refrigerated to make it firmer, or left at room temperature to make it softer and easier to spread.

There are various types of containers that can be used to package hummus, depending on the intended use and the preferences of the manufacturer or consumer. Some common types of containers for hummus include:

Jars or Bottles: Hummus can be packaged in small or large glass or plastic jars with screw-on lids. These jars are often used for retail sale and can be found in grocery stores or specialty food stores.

Cups: Hummus can also be packaged in small plastic or foil cups with lids, similar to the containers used for yogurt or sour cream. These cups are often used for single-serving sizes and can be found in grocery stores or vending machines.

Bags: Hummus can be packaged in bags, either stand-up or flat, with a zippered closure or heat seal. These bags are often used for bulk or food service sizes and can be found in restaurants or catering businesses.

Tubs: Hummus can also be packaged in large plastic tubs with lids, similar to the containers used for butter or cream cheese. These tubs are often used for bulk sizes and can be found in grocery stores or specialty food stores.
