- High in Minerals: These Millet Flakes are rich in minerals like iron, calcium, and phosphorous, which help to keep bones strong and healthy.
- Low Glycaemic Index: One of the main benefits of Barnyard Millet Flakes is their low glycaemic index. This means they are slowly absorbed into the body, helping to regulate blood sugar levels. This makes them a great choice for those with diabetes or anyone looking to manage their blood sugar levels.
- Environmentally Friendly: In addition to their nutritional benefits, Barnyard Millets are also environmentally friendly. They are drought-resistant and require less water to grow compared to other crops, making them a sustainable choice.
Overall, Barnyard Millet Flakes are a nutritious, sustainable, and delicious choice for those looking to incorporate more healthy grains into their diet.
Barnyard Millet has been traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine to support healthy digestion and regular bowel movements. It is also believed to have anti-inflammatory properties, which may be beneficial for reducing inflammation in the body.
Unlike rice and wheat that require many inputs in terms of fertiliser and water, millets grow well in dry regions as 'rainfed' crops. More than 60% farmers are dependent on rainfed’ agriculture for their livelihood. India covers arid, semi-arid and sub humid zones which represents more than 70% of the geographical area. India's rain-dependence and malnutrition problem can be addressed by promoting a shift towards production of millets.
Cold Pressed Cooking Oils
Our Cold Pressed Cooking Oils are made using traditional elements – a mortar & pestle made of granite stone and wood (Albizia lebbeck (L.) Benth.), which prevents heat generation. The oil is not heated, processed, or mixed with other chemicals. Hence, the oil retains all of the essential nutrients and minerals.
Traditional Sugars, referred to as Jaggery, is consumed in the Indian Subcontinent, Southeast Asia, and Africa. It is made from Coconut, Palmyra, Fish-tailed, Nipa and Date Palm trees.
