Our story of Makhana started 80 years ago with the success of the personality Late Sri RamChandra Sah. He was born in a middle class peasant family and started the business of Raw Makhana on a small scale at a time when hardly anyone knew about this crop and its health benefits. In due course of time, his honesty, business acumen and hard work led to the success and expansion of his business nationally and internationally. People started recognizing him as the famous “MAKHANAWALA” in his fraternity.
Now, with an inspiration to take this legacy forward and to keep his name and values alive, we have ventured into developing this wholesome, nutritious, aquatic crop (Makhana/ Lotus seeds/Fox Nuts) into ready-to-eat healthy snacks. We have also given it a classic touch of Indian-ness, so that it fulfills the nutritional needs of individuals and becomes a household name. We want to be known for the health and nutrition our snack provides with an added advantage of scrumptious taste.
Health & Nutrition
Lotus Seed/ Fox nut or Makhana is low in fat and high in carbohydrates which makes it nutritionally distinct from other nuts. Makhanas are rich in protein, carbohydrates, fiber, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, iron and zinc. All these nutrients have given this nut a reputed position in Indian recipes especially during fasting. It is a fully organic, non-cereal food that is normally grown in stagnant water and is better than dry fruits like almonds, walnuts, coconut and cashews in terms of sugar, protein, ascorbic acid and phenol content. A balanced intake of Makhana regulates blood pressure, relieves numbness, and helps the respiratory system, veins and digestion. It also contains 12% of protein, thus adding to its benefits, especially for vegetarians.
