If you’re a foodie like me, raise your hand! If you’re a health-conscious foodie like me, raise both hands! Recently, I was introduced to a healthy line-up of products from Akiva Superfoods. Having made their presence felt in the health food market through their Jaggery Candies and Weight Management Shots; they have now launched 100% Pure A2 Cow Ghee. Read on to know 5 reasons why you must try the ghee by Akiva Superfoods:
Ghee in a variety of flavours? Yes, you read it right! Apart from regular ghee flavor, you have the option of VANILLA and GARLIC & HERBS flavours too. The hint of uniqueness adds a special charm to any dish you use this product in.
- MADE USING THE TRADITIONAL BILONA PADATI (HAND-CHURNING) METHOD:
Akiva stands apart from its competitors as it uses A2 cow milk of grass fed Sahiwal cows, which is first turned into curd. This curd is hand-churned in the bilona (instrument used to churn) and then slowly heated to ensure that all remaining water evaporates, while the good fats remain. A further round of straining removes all milk solids, leaving behind pure ghee or clarified butter, which is all-natural and highly nutritious.
- RICH TASTE AND AROMA:
This is the claim on their advertising material that I can personally attest to. Akiva Superfoods partnered up with Mister Tikku and his team, to introduce this product to a select few. We were invited to Delhi’s old and famous Parathewali Gali in Chandni Chowk. At the shop named “Pandit Gaya Prasad Shiv Charan”, we were served all manner of delectable parathas cooked on the spot using Akiva ghee, and believe me when I say they were lip-smackingly delicious!
- PRESERVATIVE & GLUTEN FREE:
The all-natural ingredients are great for everyone’s health and it is also a gluten-free option for those who suffer from celiac disease. Its other benefits include lowering cholesterol and high blood pressure, being rich in Vitamins A, D, E and K, reducing inflammation, and boosting metabolism and immunity.
- KETO-FRIENDLY OPTION:
The ketogenic or keto diet is named after its Japanese creator who promoted a “high-fat, adequate protein and low carbohydrate” diet. In recent years, it has become a popular weight loss or weight-regulation mechanism. The ‘bulletproof coffee’ that is an essential part of the recommended keto diet, includes mixing fats into regular coffee. The Akiva Ghee is a keto-friendly option that can easily be included in one’s ketogenic lifestyle.
Apart from the three variants of ghee, Akiva Superfoods has a line-up of varied health snacks. I’m a huge fan of their ‘Green Tea + Apple Cider Vinegar’ Weight Management Shots, as well as their ‘Coconut’ and ‘Chocolate’ Jaggery Candies. I highly recommend looking into their product line-up for a range of healthy and yummy options.
