Aashirvaad Multigrains Atta Review-Detailed Analysis

Majority of the Indians, especially North Indians are dependent on wheat for daily  meals. Brown bread, roti or parantha, wheat is the staple grain. There was a time I used to have parantha in breakfast and rotis in lunch and dinner! Now I wonder how I stay without wheat 😛

Wheat has suffered a reputation loss due to various reasons like popularity of low carb lifestyle, rise in glutten intolerance amongst people etc. Modern day wheat is not as healthy as compared to what our ancestors ate, check out the post here.  That’s how people got attracted to multigrain flour like we see in breads.

Aashirvaad which is well known brand in wheat flour came up with Aashirvaad Multigrains Atta. We recommend mix flour roti to our clients in IWB weight loss program. Some of the ladies asked if they can have Aashirvaad Multigrains Atta, so I was curious to try it out!

It claims to have wheat, soya, channa, oat, maze and psyllium husk. I must admit I was impressed when I saw what I saw 😉

Price

Rs 5o a kg. I bought 1 kg pack for trial, bigger packets could be cheaper.

Taste and Texture

I make my own multigrain flour by mixing separate flours in the ratio that I prefer to have for low carbing. Aashirvaad Multigrains Atta certainly has a better taste and texture than that multigrain atta that I prepare. In fact, its just like wheat flour with hardly any difference in taste and texture.

Aashirvaad Multigrains Atta Review

Like I said before, I was so excited to check the description of Aashirvaad Multigrains Atta. The next step was to post-mortem the ingredients. Here you go –

And with one look at the ingredients, all my excitement was lost! I was shocked to see that wheat forms 90% composition of Aashirvaad Multigrains Atta and only 10% comprises of soya flour, oat flour, psyllium husk, maize flour and gram flour. How disgusting is that?

Wheat atta retails at about Rs 30 a kg, why would someone pay Rs 50 for a multigrain flour which has just 10% of other flours and 90% wheat? I fail to understand!

In short, people who pick this over wheat flour are simply being fooled. The irony is that the regulation on food items is so vague in India that any company can sell its product like hot cakes just by having the fancy ingredients in minimum quantities. I think its a better idea to buy wheat flour and mix your choice of flours in the ration you like, as I have been doing till date.

So Aashirvaad Multigrains Atta is a miss for me! I won’t recommend this to people on budget or people who are low carbing or gluten sensitive. This is good only if you are extremely lazy to mix your flours or you have money raining in that you don’t bother 😉

  1. So I was just having a discussion over multi grain with my dad. He was saying that we should get our own multi grain. I contended why to do all the hassle when one simply can buy multigrain of brands like Ashirwaad. Hence to prove my point I googled it and landed up here and my dad won. 😛

    Great Post Though!

  2. Mix 44gm whole wheat flour with 16gm psyllium husk powder… Makes about 2 chapatis…. Very high fiber and even for a diabetic, it will not spike the blood sugar after 1hr…in the morning, just eat 1 chapati… As the blood is very sensitive in the morning… This is not low carb… But it is very high fibre… So your sugar will still remain stable

  3. We stay in Bangalore and were missing the wheat flour made back at our home town where wheat is ground. Finally we have found stores that sell wheat and local small mills that do the job. But perfect grinding matters a lot, so it is hit or miss. Wonder if the extra effort is worth it. Your views please. Thanks.

    • Wheat flour made in the mills will never be as fine as the ready packs of flour, which infact is a good thing as coarse flour will have more bran in it… but the question is that do you have that much time to wash and dry the wheat before taking it to the mill? If NO then it’s not worth the effort because you will be consuming all dirt along with flour if not washed and dried in a proper way.
