This is delicately balanced with the subtle sweetness and smooth texture from red beans making this a delectable treat!

Pink Lady 10 Grain Beetroot

This outer layer of this pastel pink gem derives its natural hues from beetroot juices. The 10 Grains here refer to a mixture of ten types of natural, unrefined, nutritious grains, beans and nuts; namely buckwheat, mung bean, black rice, red lentil, black soya beans, soya beans, red sorghum, wheat berries, barley and pine nuts. Beetroot is a good dietary source of iron and folic acid which helps to increase blood count, promote healthy blood circulation, relieve menstrual cramps and menopause symptoms, and even gives one a naturally rosy skin complexion.

All-natural and Organic Main Ingredients

With a very low glycemic index of 2 (sugar is 65), isomalt is suitable for those with diabetes. It provides excellent taste and a smooth mouthfeel with half the sweetness of regular sugar (sucrose), lesser calories and a reduced effect on blood glucose levels compared to sucrose. As a sugar alcohol (though it does not contain alcohol) derived from plants, it cannot be broken down by oral bacteria thus preventing tooth decay.

The organic unbleached plain flour is free from bleaching and additives, produced through traditional-style stone milling process which helps retain the benefits of grain enzymes and nutrients. Himalayan salt contains high and healthy content of minerals and trace elements.

Beautifully presented in a gift box depicting a traditional Oriental scene with a vivid blend of colours and bringing forth the elegance of this timeless tradition, this makes an ideal gift loved ones, friends, colleagues, business associates alike.
