Launched in 1996 by Capital Foods, Ching’s Secret has become very popular among the desi Chinese food lovers .
The product is made entirely from wheat flour and so this will be a high glycemic load for most people and we encourage low consumption of this food, preferably with a lot of wholesome vegetables and/or chicken or meat.
The protein content in this product is 9 gm per 75 gm while simple carbohydrate is 60 gm per 75 gm pack which is high and detrimental to health of those with lifestyle diseases.
The foodnetindia rating for this product :-
foodnetindia safety rating: 2 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unsafe to very safe)
The product has been given a lower rating because of the high simple carb content and the fact that most people in India who consume it do not restrict it to 30% or less of their meal.
The resultant high glycemic load reduces overall safety of the meal for most people. In addition, unlike a wheat flour chapathi, this product contains several additives that we can do without.
foodnetindia wholesomeness rating: 3 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unbalanced nutrition profile to excellent nutrition profile)
The product is acceptable as a part of an otherwise wholesome meal that contains sufficient macro and micro nutrient diversity. However, as it tends to be consumed in India in large quantities as a meal replacement, its high simple carb content and lack of nutrient diversity makes it unwholesome
