Deepa is Rediscovering The Art and Science of Nourishing

“A great care and an abundance of positive energy have gone into making these flakes and it is both a pleasure and a privilege to share them with you”

During clinical practice I have seen thousands of patients and have observed that when patients are encourage to eat plant-based diets that included legumes, their gut health improved. That relationship between consumption of legumes and improved gut health has also been noted in recent research in the field of nutrition..

Other health outcomes I have observed in association with routine addition of legumes to patient’s’ diets were improvements in immune response and digestion along with nutrient absorption. That is, I started seeing a reversal of many chronic conditions that my patients had been fighting for years.

To help with their diets, I developed recipes, products, and meal plans using a variety of nutrient-dense ingredients, which mainly included legumes, turmeric, herbs, and spices. However, I observed that the major roadblock for patients in consuming legumes on a daily basis was a lack of time and familiarity with these wonderful ingredients. As a result, patients were missing vital nutrients such as prebiotic fiber, iron, protein, and many micronutrients found in legumes. This observation prompted me to look for minimally-processed, ready-to-eat, lentil-based ingredients. I was particularly intrigued by the prebiotic content of lentils and realized that food manufacturers have overlooked the potential of lentils as a prebiotic source.

Specifically, the market did not have ready-to-eat lentils in a flake form that is portable, accessible, and with an unlimited potential for every day application.

After collaborating with a manufacturer who is equally passionate about beans and legumes, and after three years of hard work, a minimally-processed, sprouted, ready-to-eat lentil flake, infused with turmeric, fruit and vegetable extract, and probiotic, was born. These crunchy flakes are the main ingredient in the formulation of the Deepa’s Lentil Flakes product line.

Great care and an abundance of positive energy have gone into making these flakes and it is both a pleasure and a privilege to share them with you.
