Farmlite Veda Digestive Biscuits Review
Crispy and fibrous, do Sunfeast Farmlite Veda digestive biscuits work well with a cup of masala chai?
It’s not everyday we come across packaged cookies or biscuits that use Indian herbs and spices. Which is why this Sunfeast Farmlite variant made using five natural ingredients caught our attention. ‘Calories’, ‘protein’, ‘superfoods’ are a few of the many hackneyed words we’ve been hearing around. Herbs, spices, and wholegrains are nutritious powerhouses. Does this mean these cookies are healthy too?
In our Sunfeast Farmlite Veda Digestive biscuit review, we take a look at the ingredient list. What percentage of the natural ingredients is used? Are these cookies tasty enough to keep the 4 pm cravings at bay? What about the texture? Let’s have a look at how these digestive biscuits fared on our rating scale.
Sunfeast Farmlite Veda Digestive Biscuit – Everything You Need To Know
Dunking a crisp biscuit in a cup of warm tea is one of the simplest pleasures of life. Sunfeast Farmlite Veda Digestive biscuits boasts of using natural ingredients like ashwagandha, cardamom, mulethi, ginger, and tulsi. They also contain some proportion of whole wheat. So how would a herb-loaded biscuit taste? Let’s find out!
Refined wheat flour, wheat flour, refined palm oil, sugar, wheat bran, liquid glucose, maltodextrin, wheat fibre, milk solids, iodized salt, malt extract, ginger, cardamom, mulethi, ginger, and tulsi are some of the ingredients used.
No more than 0.1 g of each extract has been added.
We tasted multiple elements in one bite. These cookies are delicately sweet. Similarly, the spice extracts could be tasted but they were very subtle. Cardamom had the strongest presence in terms of taste.
3. Texture & Colour
The color of baked goods doesn’t just depend on how well-rated the appliance is. It also depends on the ingredients used to make the dough, the proportion and quality of said ingredients. This variant of Sunfeast Farmlite biscuits looked delectable! They had the characteristic brown shade of a well-baked biscuit.
Texture-wise, these biscuits were crisp. Talking about the oiliness/greasiness, these biscuits felt somewhat dry. These weren’t buttery at all, neither on the fingers nor when we bit into them.
4. Bite or Mouth Feel
These biscuits felt fibrous. Looking at the ingredient list, we can say the wheat bran and wheat fibre bring this ‘fibrous’ bite.
