SOYA BRAN (OKARA) based SNAX AND BURGERS
(basically high fibre and high protein foods)
Ideal for diabetics? Ideal for weight watchers? Ideal for tummy digestion stabilizers?
Adapted from a Japanese concept for Weight watchers and Diabetics, Soya Snax contain Okara (soya fibre basically), whole wheat flour (not maida!), refined soybean oil, and jeera—NO SUGAR !
The fibrous residue called ‘Okara’, obtained as a byproduct of soymilk is very rich in fibre (both soluble and insoluble fibre)and protein, yet contains less carbohydrate and fat. In addition, okara is 100% vegetarian and cholesterol free.
Traditionally Okara based products have been an Oriental Diet Secret. When Okara bran is consumed along with any fluid, it expands in the stomach to many times its size giving the person a “full” feeling and killing appetite.
Due to Okara’s varied health benefits for the average person and specifically for the diabetics and weight watchers, people all over the world are increasingly consuming Okara based products. In addition, Okara has a very neutral taste. Hence it can be added to most foods as a hi fibre, hi protein extender.
Chetrans “Okara based Snacks” are arguably healthier than wheat based Digestive Biscuits.
