The foodnetindia rating for this product :-

foodnetindia safety rating: 3 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unsafe to very safe)

The product is deep fried in an unspecified vegetable oil and so is likely to have oxidized PUFA, which has been linked to lifestyle disease and cancer. In addition, people tend to eat these foods in large quantity, creating a problem from high sugar and salt content,which is linked to high blood pressure and cardiovascular diseases.

foodnetindia wholesomeness rating: 3- (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unbalanced nutrition profile to excellent nutrition profile)

The product has some wholesome peanuts which are high in fibre, nutrient dense and a healthy wholesome food. The rest of the product does not have much going for it.  The product is deep fried in an unspecified vegetable oil.Certain vegetable oils contain very large amounts of biologically active fats called Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which could be harmful in excess. Excess polyunsaturated fats may react with oxygen and oxidised Omega-6 fats can damage body functions and perhaps even vital structures like DNA.

Ingredients of concern in Yellow Diamond Falahari Chiwda Namkeen Meetha

Edible Vegetable Oil

This food product does not specify which edible vegetable oil has been used. We believe that it is not responsible behaviour for a brand to avoid clearly stating what ingredients have been used.

Certain vegetable oils contain very large amounts of biologically active fats called Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which could be harmful in excess. Excess polyunsaturated fats may react with oxygen and oxidised Omega-6 fats can damage body functions and perhaps even vital structures like DNA. In addition, consumers need clear information about the type of vegetable oil used, so that they can take action to maintain a healthy balance between Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acid consumption.

In addition, some people may be allergic to specific oils. Food allergies can sometimes be life threatening.

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.

Other ingredients that are in the product but not a major source of concern in our opinion are:

  • Potato (30%)
  • Peanut (15%)
  • Raisins
  • Rock Salt
  • Curry Leaves & Condiments
