Why MealsummTM ?
Whole wheat has been shown to reduce risk of heart disease by decreasing cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and blood coagulation.

Regular consumption of MealsummTM will help heart patients and diabetics in maintaining good health. People on weight management and obese will find it very helpful to reduce weight. It is good for expecting mothers and babies due to its high folic acid content. Its great for kids and adults due to its high mineral, vitamins and fiber content. According to the nutritional scoreboard by Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) Bulgur (processed broken wheat) is the most nutritious meal.
Why MealsummTM is better than other wholewheat products ?
Most wholewheat products are made from whole wheat flour. Grinding grains into flour increases its surface area which helps enzymes to quickly convert starch into glucose. Hence any product which is made from wholewheat flour and white flour can have the same glycemic index. Moreover, whole grains contain “Phytic acid” in the bran of the grain which combines with calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc etc, and slows down its absorption by intestinal track. The processing of MealsummTM is best suited to decrease the phytic acid content which is an anti-nutrient of the wheat and increase the bran content (cellulosic part, high mineral). Hence, MealsummTM is easily digestible and there is no loss of nutrients as complete wheat nutrients are absorbed by the wheat kernel during processing operations.
