Akshaya Ponni boiled rice is a range of rice cultivated in the southern part of India. It is the parboiled rice which is steamed before the milling process and is semi boiled in the rusk. The parboiling process retains the nutrients which are usually lost during the refining process. Akshaya Ponni boiled rice is highly beneficial and is a rich source of Iron and Calcium. It has fewer calories, fewer carbohydrates, more fibre and more protein as compared to White Rice and hence is a healthier alternative to White Rice.
Manchukonda believes that the growing health awareness among people
and the need for healthy food products offers a huge opportunity for further growth of the Nawab brand of Akshaya Ponni Rice.
Because of our processing methodology, the Rice is softer and lengthier and is also more nutritious. Plus the yield , post cooking is 1.5 times of New rice.
Speaking at the Press Conference Mr Manchukonda Chakravarthy, CEO of the Company revealed that they would be expanding their product range and will be launching Pulses, Sugar and Basmati Rice during the course of the year.
Nawab brand is available in 25,10&5kg BOPP bags.
