SMDC Natural Health and Food Products was started with the objective of providing options for "healthy foods" that are grown in an absolutely natural process (ZBNF method of farming).
Why ZBNF? What is ZBNF?
- ZBNF are set of natural farming methods.
- No chemical, fertilizer, pesticides, bio-fertilizers or vermicompost used.
- Only these four steps; seed treatment,microbial culture, mulching and soil aeration.
- It is different from organic farming.
Sahjeevan Indigenous Sorghum (Jowar) is high nutrient composition makes jowar a desirable grain when it comes to good health. Here are some of the several benefits of the whole-grain:
Rich in Fiber: Compared to other cereal grains like barley or rice, jowar contains a much higher concentration of fiber. A single serving contains more than 12 grams, which is more than the recommended daily intake of 48%.
Controls Blood Sugar Levels: Jowar, a complex carbohydrate, is digested slowly, prompting a more gradual rise in blood sugar. That’s why it’s a great diet choice for diabetics and people who want to lose weight.
One cup of jowar has 22 grams of protein, which supplies the body with energy as well as aids in cell regeneration.
Packed with Vitamins, Minerals and Micronutrients
It contains B vitamins, which help the body build new tissues and cells, as well as potassium and phosphorous. Additionally, jowar contains traces of zinc, copper and over 20 micronutrients as well as high levels of antioxidants.
Improves Heart Health
As discussed earlier, jowar is rich in dietary fiber. The abundance of fiber in it helps lower LDL (or bad cholesterol) levels in the body, thus reducing the risk of heart attack.
The cholesterol lowering properties of jowar also reduce the chances of hindered blood flow, arteriosclerosis and plaque formation.
Improves Energy Levels
Sorghum contains high amounts of niacin (or Vitamin B3). The B vitamin is integral in transforming food into energy usable by the body.
