Flaxseed enriched dietary Peda: A nutritious delight with flaxseed powder

Author(s): Ankur Trivedi, Tarun Verma, Deshmukh RR, Somveer and Ankur Aggarwal
Abstract:
India is the world's largest milk producer, with a record production of 209.96 million tons of milk per annum in 2020. Milk production in India has been increasing at an average annual growth rate of 6.3 percent over the past six years. The traditional dairy sector plays a significant role in India, accounting for over 90 percent of all dairy products consumed in the country. Khoa, a partially dehydrated whole milk product, is the main ingredient in various traditional Indian sweets like Peda and Burfi. Peda is a popular khoa-based indigenous dairy product, while Burfi is another khoa-based sweet. Flaxseeds, which are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, and Stevia, a natural sweetener, have been incorporated into Peda to make it more beneficial in terms of nutrition and health. This modified Peda recipe reduces the fat and sugar content, making it a healthier option, particularly for individuals with cardiovascular diseases. Flaxseeds contain omega-3 fats and lignans, which have anti-inflammatory and anti-thrombotic properties. Stevia, on the other hand, is a natural sweetener that provides sweetness without adding calories or affecting blood sugar levels.
