Amul Amrakhand is a traditional Maharashtrian delicacy made with milk solids.
As with many traditional Indian delicacies, Amul Amrakhand is sugary at 34 gm per 100 gm which is harmful for diabetics and those who are obese.
The foodnetindia rating for this product:-
foodnetindia safety rating: 4 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unsafe to very safe)
The excess sugar present in this delicacy makes it unsafe except in small quantities for the healthy and even in small quantities for those suffering from diabetes and lifestyle diseases.
Amul Amrakhand’s ingredient label does not specify which spices and condiments are used, we urge the brand to be specific in mentioning the ingredients clearly on its food label as customers have the right to know what is in their food.
foodnetindia wholesomeness rating: 4 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unbalanced nutrition profile to excellent nutrition profile)
Amul Amrakhand is made from milk solids (chena) which is nutritious and wholesome but the high sugar content in it makes it unhealthy for many who consume it.
Ingredients in Amul Amrakhand which are a concern:
In 100 gm serving size of the Amul Amrakhand there is 34 gm of sugar. This food product does not specify which sugar has been used. This is important because different sugars have different metabolic effects. For example, Sucrose (Cane Sugar) is very different from Fructose (Fruit Sugar). Some foods use high fructose corn syrup which may be harmful in much lower quantities than sucrose. We believe that it is not responsible behaviour for a brand to not clearly state what ingredients have been used.
Added Flavour- Artificial flavouring substances (Mango)
This food product does not specify which flavours or flavouring substances have been used. The flavours should be specified as some of them have serious side effects and may not be suitable for infants, pregnant women or people who are allergic. We believe that it is not responsible behaviour for a brand to avoid clearly stating what ingredients have been used.
By not specifying what these flavours and substances are, we are forced to consider what they are hiding and why would they be so reluctant to mention what they have used in the food product!
