Wheat & wheat products are nutritious. Wheat flour naturally contains many nutrients essential to human growth & development. Wheat not only helps to stimulate appetite but also plays an important role in ending “hidden hunger”. This hidden hunger is caused by subtle vitamins & minerals (iron & folic acid) deficiencies which in turn stimulate the appetite.
To overcome above deficiency, we carry out fIour fortification. The aim of fortification of flour is to supply a balanced food to the consumer. The composition of wheat flour: about 15% moisture, 60 – 70% Starch, 7 – 15% protein and oil, fiber and minerals 2% each. Fortified flour supplies the full requirement of energy, protein, iron, calcium, vitamin B1, and nicotinic acid.
