Little Millets, also known as sajjalu or samalu, 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 Little Millet Flakes into your diet:
- Nutritious: Little 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: Little 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, Little Millet Flakes are naturally gluten-free, making them a safe option for people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivities.
- Sustainable: Little 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: Little 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 Little 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, Little 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.
Good taste and good products. Eco friendly packaging from TRENPA is a welcome change.
Saamai aval is good and easy to digest
Good quality little millet flakes. Contains a small sachet of Oxygen Absorber to extend shelf life and ensure there are no pests/weevils. Nice idea.
I made Puttu (steamed cylinders of ground rice layered with coconut shavings, sometimes with a sweet or savory filling on the inside) with these flakes. Really nice with a very pleasent flavour.
