Our Krispies currently come in three mouthwatering flavors: Hickory, Turmeric Chili, and Cinna Vanilla. One ounce of our krispies contains seven grams of protein!

In this post, we will discuss the ingredients used at Nutritionist Deepa’s. We take pride in our use of functional and wholesome ingredients. We’re aware that, in today’s fast-paced world, purchasing packaged foods is convenient. However, it’s what’s inside those goods that matter the most. Our goal is to keep our ingredients simple and wholesome.

Lentils and Beans

Legumes are an inexpensive solution to getting a multitude of nutrients. Some of these nutrients include B vitamins, magnesium, zinc, and potassium.

A half-cup serving of cooked lentils supplies about 12 grams of protein making them a wonderful meat-alternative. They’re an excellent source of iron (a mineral that is often lacking in vegetarian diets). Additionally, lentils are an outstanding source of prebiotic fiber. The prebiotic fiber from lentils helps the probiotic bacteria in our gut to survive, thrive, and keep us healthy.

Spices

We love our spices! Not only to enhance your dish with mouthwatering flavors, but also to provide plentiful health benefits.

Turmeric is the spice that gives curry its yellow color. It has been used in India for centuries, both as a spice and as a medicinal herb. Compounds in turmeric have beneficial effects on the heart. It improves the function of the endothelium. Additionally, turmeric is a potent anti-inflammatory agent and antioxidant. It also boosts levels of the brain-hormone BDNF, which increases the growth of new neurons and fights various degenerative processes in the brain.

Chili powder is an anti-inflammatory agent, which helps decrease the swelling of sore joints and increases blood flow. Many associate chili powder with causing  an upset stomach. However, it actually prevents acid reflux and kills the bacteria that cause stomach ulcers. This fiery spice is packed with vitamin C, which acts as an antioxidant to strengthen the immune system, heal injuries, and fight infections. Lastly, chili powder is an fine source of vitamin E, which is beneficial for the eyes and skin.

Cinnamon contains enormous amounts of highly-potent polyphenol antioxidants. These antioxidants have anti-inflammatory properties, which help lower your risk of heart disease. Moreover, Cinnamon reduces fasting blood-sugar levels, resulting in a potent anti-diabetic effect. Its antifungal and antibacterial properties reduce infections, which help fight tooth decay and bad breath.

Raisins and Dates

Despite their size, raisins are packed with energy and are rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Raisins are naturally sweet and they're beneficial to our health when eaten in moderation. In fact, raisins can aid digestion, boost iron levels, and keep your bones strong.

Dates contain vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants. They will keep you full for a longer period of time and have a low glycemic index (GI), which measures how quickly your blood sugar rises after eating a certain food.

We strive to provide innovative solutions to help you incorporate to plant-protein in your diet without having to sacrifice flavor or texture. Our ready-to-eat Lentil Krispies are created with global flavors and have versatile applications. We not only have an innovative product, but also provide simple applications that you can use at home. We are here to help you on the journey to create a healthier and happier you.
