Nutritional Information

  • Poha is a nutritious dish. It’s high in carbohydrates, high in iron, high in fiber, high in antioxidants and important vitamins, and it’s gluten-free.
  • Oats are abundant in manganese, phosphorus, copper, B vitamins, iron, selenium, magnesium, and zinc among the vitamins and minerals. They’re also a good source of fiber and antioxidants.
  • Puffed rice consists of essential micronutrients especially calcium, iron, and vitamin D.
  • Peanuts are abundant in protein, fat, and fiber. While peanuts contain a lot of fat, the majority of the lipids in them are considered “good fats.” These fats truly aid in the reduction of cholesterol levels. Magnesium is another important mineral found in peanuts.
  • Coconuts are particularly high in manganese, as well as copper and iron.
  • Raisins are also high in minerals like vitamin C, selenium, and zinc. Raisins have a good balance of nutrients and antioxidants.
  • Nuts and seeds are enriched with healthy fats, and significant vitamins and minerals.
  • Jaggery powder is enriched with minerals and vitamins especially magnesium, phosphorus, and vitamin B.
  • Coconut oil is particularly high in lauric acid, a rare saturated fat that appears to benefit blood lipid composition.
