Some Frequently Asked Questions
Do you need to store naturally grown pulses differently?
Since naturally grown ingredients do not have any preservatives, they do need to be stored with a bit of care. Keeping them in air-tight containers is a good idea to protect them from pests and humidity. If you want to be extra careful you can even consider refrigerating them.
How do natural pulses differ in taste from conventional pulses?
While there is no significant change in the taste of pulses grown naturally, the real difference is in the nutrition values of these ingredients. Naturally grown pulses have higher levels of antioxidants and much better content of fibre.
Is the shelf life of natural pulses shorter than conventional ones?
Naturally grown pulses are not treated with any waxes or chemicals to increase their lifespan. Which is why Girveda only grows pulses using 100% natural techniques. While this can reduce the lifespan of some products, it adds a lot by way of nutrients and flavour.
What are the health benefits of natural pulses?
Natural pulses grown using CBNF techniques, are high in fibre thus aiding digestion. This also helps in reducing your overall bad cholesterol levels and helps maintain heart health. Potassium in pulses helps reduce blood pressure, and are a great source of proteins. Pulses are known as superfoods, however, over-processing can leave them devoid of their natural goodness. That is why we at Girveda provide 100% natural pulses.
