Makhana

Makhanas, also known as fox nuts, come from the lotus flower. They are harvested from the bottom of the lotus pond or river. Farmers dive in the water with long poles. They drag these at the base of the pole. Once collected, they are washed and cleaned in a crescent-shaped container. The clean seeds are then rolled on the ground so that their surface is smoothened and left to dry for a few hours. Lastly, they’re roasted in a pan at high flame and hit so that the black shells break and white puffs pop out.

They are as tasty to snack on as healthy for the body especially for those suffering from high blood pressure, heart diseases, and obesity. They are a great source of magnesium for vegetarians and vegans. Since they are low in cholesterol, fat, and sodium they make way for a great snack for in-between meals. They have low calorie content and yet they’re protein-rich - an extraordinary attribute few foods have. They also carry an anti-ageing enzyme that helps repair damaged proteins. Lastly, they are gluten-free, vegan, and have a low glycemic index- making them an easy choice of food for people who are allergic to gluten, follow a plant-based diet, and/or are diabetic.

Most importantly, unlike most other Makhana products sold in stores, the ones by Conscious Food have a clean label, are free of emulsifiers or caking agents, and are made from kitchen ingredients. They make snacking a non-guilty pleasure!
