Kodo Millets, also known as varagu or harka, are a type of grain that is native to India and Southeast Asia. These grains have a long history of cultivation and are known for their high nutrient content and numerous health benefits. Here are five reasons why you should consider incorporating Kodo Millets into your diet:
- Nutritious: Kodo Millet Flakes are a good source of protein, fibre, and various vitamins and minerals, including iron, potassium, and B-vitamins. They are also low in fat and calories, making them a healthy choice for weight management.
- Good for Heart Health: Kodo Millet Flakes contain compounds that may help lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. They are also a good source of antioxidants, which can help protect against oxidative stress and inflammation in the body.
- Gluten-Free: Like other millets, Kodo Millet Flakes are naturally gluten-free, making them a safe option for people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivities.
- Sustainable: Kodo Millets are highly drought-resistant and can be grown in areas with low rainfall, making them a sustainable choice for farmers in dry regions.
- Versatile: Kodo Millets can be used in a variety of dishes, including rotis, idlis, and porridge. They can also be ground into flour and used in baking or to make pasta.
Incorporating Kodo Millet Flakes into your diet is an easy and delicious way to add more nutrients and fibre to your meals. Whether you use them in traditional Indian or Southeast Asian dishes or as a substitute for wheat in your favourite recipes, Kodo Millet Flakes are a versatile and nutritious choice.
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. The term jaggery is generally understood to refer to palm syrup based jaggery rather than sugarcane jaggery. The sugary syrup is boiled in steel vats to make these traditional sugars.
These perfect for breakfast and to start your day with the necessary energy and nutrients. Very well worth the money too.
The product is not found in the nearby shops. Hence it makes more sense to buy from TRENPA’s website.
It is a millet that digests easily. It is rich in phytochemicals that help reduce cancer risks. It can also help reduce body weight, reduce knee and joint pain.
The Varagu (Kodo Millet Flakes) is splendid. The first day I made Pongal out of it, it tasted like “Jeevamritham’; soooo delicious. Then, for the next 3 days I ate the flakes with Rasam, Curd, & Plain Milk. I’m using 2 times a week for breakfast. It’s quite filling too. I am yet to use the Finger Millet Flakes (Ragi Flakes) one. It certainly helps a lot and I will certainly contact Trenpa for more.
