Product Review- Haldiram’s Punjabi Tadka
Haldiram’s is one of India’s most popular brand of sweets and namkeens. The product is made of besan or gram flour with a unique Punjabi twist.
The foodnetindia rating for this product :-
Foodnetindia safety rating : 4-(On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unsafe to very safe)
This product has high salt content of 270 mg per 30 gm serving pack which is very high. High salt consumption can cause high blood pressure and cardiovascular diseases.
Foodnetindia wholesomeness rating : 5 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unbalanced nutrition profile to excellent nutrition profile)
The product has wholesome bengal gram flour and is fried in palmolein oil which altogether add wholesomeness to the product. Unlike most other vegetable oils, palmolein is primarily saturated fat, it is better suited for cooking. It does not have too much PUFA, which can get oxidized under heat and is rendered toxic. Bengal gram is the primary ingredient in this food, which makes it a healthy and wholesome choice.
