DALIA

Any kind of grain that has been broken represents dalia and can be made from any grain like millet, wheat, rice. The most prominently used form of Dalia is of wheat. The outer cover of the grain is hardened by washing and drying or by roasting the grain which then is formed into dalia. Later, these grains are passed through a machine by breaking them down to varying degrees of fineness.

Madhvik Dalia is not only rich in nutrition but is also super delicious and can be cooked easily. Along with dalia you are consuming the whole grain as such which has the entire wheat kernel that helps in making it rich in nutrition. The germ, bran and endosperm included in this makes it highly beneficial and nutritious to your health.

Dalia helps in flushing out toxins as it is a laxative and an excellent source of fibre. Dalia helps in the prevention of constipation and maintenance of bowel movements. Conditions such as nausea, bloating, gas formation, and abdominal pain can be ease down just by a bowl of dalia as it stimulates the digestive system.

Cholesterol is regulated in our body by the high amount of fibre present in Dalia. The cholesterol particles are bonded with the soluble fibre content thus reducing the cholesterol level and not getting it to deposit in the body by flushing the bound particles out of the body.

Dalia is low in the glycemic index and consists of complex carbohydrates. Ranking of carbohydrates present in foods based on how they affect the blood sugar levels is done by the Glycemic index. A much healthier food than the packaged foods is dalia and thus is suitable for growing children.
