Though organic rice, millets and lentils are becoming popular, many customers forget to look for unpolished cereals, grains and lentils. Quite often the millet rices sold are polished, looking almost white in colour. In Dharani all the cereals, millets and pulses are unpolished and are whole grains.
Why unpolished grains are better than polished grains?
- Unpolished grains have bran which get removed when they are polished. It is the bran that keeps all the nutrients like iron, thiamine, potassium, magnesium etc. intact and which are available only in whole grains.
- Unpolished grains have a relatively low glycaemic index.
- Unpolished grains have selenium, high fiber content and are rich in anti-oxidants.
- Unpolished grain release sugars in blood slowly
