Some Frequently Asked Questions
Are all flours from Girveda made from naturally grown grains?
Yes! Girveda only partners with farmers who use cow based farming techniques. This ensures that all the grain grown is completely natural and untouched by chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Moreover, the grain is also processed on the farm itself, in a carefully managed environment to ensure no adulteration in the end product.
Is natural flour healthier?
Research suggests that naturally grown flour has a higher level of nutrients, including fibre, and essential oils present in the grain. Most flours in the market are products of over-industrialization, they are bleached, broken, heated and even their basic chemical structures are changed. This essentially removes the important nutrients from the flour, making it a shadow of its natural healthy self.
Does natural flour have a shorter shelf life?
In a word, yes. Since natural flour like Girveda’s does not contain any preservatives the shelf life is shorter than most market products. This however, comes with the benefit of better flavour, completely natural ingredients, and an increased amount of nutrients. All flour that comes from Girveda has been tested thoroughly to ensure they are healthy and nutritive.
Does Girveda’s flour have any permitted agents?
Girveda firmly believes in keeping all its products chemical free. While many flours on market shelves use bleaching, maturing or dough conditioning agents which are usually chemicals, Girveda does not do that. All the flour varieties sold by Girveda are completely untouched by preservatives and any unnatural chemicals. Having said that, all our flours are completely shelf-stable and packed with nutrition.
What is the difference between Girveda’s flours and others on the market?
Girveda’s flours are made with completely naturally grown grains. As opposed to that, regular grains have some or the other chemical impurities in them thanks to the fertilizers and pesticides used. Naturally grown grains, and the atta made from them, is higher in nutrition and has a richer taste than inorganic grains and flour. Most importantly, Girveda uses traditional practices to make flour from grains, at the farm itself, making it a self-contained process, unlike other flours on the market. This maintains the integrity of the product, and allows consumers to check where the grain was grown and the tests associated with it.
