Hummus can be good for you in moderation. Hummus is high in fibre and gives you iron, protein, and other important minerals. It is high in fat content but fat isn't necessarily bad for you. If it's eaten as part of a balanced diet, it should be healthy.

What is the usual relationship between protein intake and fat content of food?

The use of the phrase protein intake and fat content is a bit confusing here so will answer this question two ways. 1) Protein content vs. Fat content Fat content and protein content do not follow a prescribed formula. Some meat is inherently lean, many confections have a very high fat content and practically no protien. For example: Many cuts of beef have much less fat than dark meat chicken. Fish may be high in fat but the primary source of fat is Omega fatty acids. which are considered "good" fat. 2) Protein intake (consumption) by a food animal vs. fat content of the end product Protein intake of a food animal (cow, pig, lamb, chicken) does not contribute to the fat content of any end product unless the food animal is also consuming high carbohydrate. Any excess calories can be turned into fat, however, high carbohydrate consumption lends itself to fat production. This is why grass fed beef is leaner than beef that has been finished using a high carbohydrate product like corn.
