This is also known as Kathiya variety of wheat and it absorbs more water while kneading than normal wheat. Comprising Vitamins B and E, protein, calcium, phosphorus, zinc, copper and iron, it is known for being especially high in fibre which is essential for healthy living, and for a well-functioning digestive system. A high-fibre diet also lowers cholesterol levels and helps maintain a healthy weight. Studies have shown that fibre can also help manage blood sugar levels, making it key in the prevention and management of diabetes.
Good morning friends. This week we bring Khapli Wheat from Maharashtra.
Long Wheat (Triticum Dicoccum – Emmer wheat or Farro) is a type of hulled wheat commonly called by the name as ‘jave or khapli’ in India. Long wheat is nutritionally superior when compared to commercially available durum wheat in its protein and dietary fiber contents. It is tastier, softer and has higher satiety value. It is more suited for diabetes management. It was widely cultivated in the ancient world, but now considered as a relic crop.
