Anil Chakki Fresh Atta is 100 percent whole wheat grain, rich in nutrients, vitamins, and dietary fibre that is important for a healthy digestive system. It also helps to lower blood cholesterol and helps you get more fit.
Natural Whole Wheat Chakki Atta is stone ground and processed from selected premium wheat grains. Freshly milled whole wheat flour gives even moisture to make chapattis soft & fresh for a long time.
Traditional Stone Grinding Method
The best Chakki Atta is prepared through the traditional grinding process. There are several advantages to stone – ground wheat flour. Only whole grain stone-ground flour is sure to contain the grain components – endosperm, bran, and germ remain in their natural, original proportions.
When the stones grind slowly, the wheat germ is not exposed to excessive temperatures, germ oil is evenly distributed and as a result, rancidity does not develop as quickly as it would be it ground by steel roller-mills.
Stone-ground flour is preferred by many because of its texture, its sweet nutty flavour, and its nutritionally superior nature.
Commercial roller mills vs. Stone Grinding
- Chakki fresh Atta is milled with a stone ground process that grinds slowly and stays cool. The high speed rolling and hammering flour mills generates excess heat that “kills” the nutrients of flour.
- Industrial flour mills break and separate the bran, wheat germ, produce white flour and then add them back to produce whole wheat flour. This process does not allow the mingling of the endosperm and wheat germ oil.
- Whole wheat flour produced by commercial milling of wheat kernel is also referred as berries. The process involves the breaking of bran that locks and protects all the nutrients of kernel. Then the middling is removed and finally, most essential wheat germ is removed.
- Wheat germ and wheat germ oil is highly nutritious and composes 90% of nutritional value in a wheat berry. The wheat germ oil has no shelf life and it quickly turns rancid. The wheat germ oil is removed from all commercial flours available in the market as per government regulations.
- Milling temperatures of 60oC and above completely destroy vitamins in the flour. Typically, roller-based flour mills reach temperatures of up to 90oC while processing flour compared to 40-60oC in a stone ground chakki.
- Stone ground fresh flour is always the first choice owing to its lovely flavour and fibrous texture. When compared to roller-milled flour, especially when from hard wheat, Stone-milled flour is relatively high in thiamine,
