Patanjali Namkeen Biscuit – Detailed Review
In this section, we discuss our experience with the product, its pros, and cons :
Product Inspection: Patanjali Namkeen Biscuits come in a red color foil pack. The biscuits are placed securely in two individual transparent packs. The 80 gm quantity includes 31 biscuits. These are round in shape and have micro holes in the center. The sides of the biscuits are serrated. All the biscuits are baked evenly and have a medium thickness. Except for one to two biscuits, the entire pack was unbroken and intact.
Our findings :
Taste: Taste-wise, Patanjali Namkeen Biscuits are salty. It is slightly similar to that of cheesy savoriness (biscuits contain added cheese flavor). The presence of chili and cumin add a flavorful twist here. It amps up the taste of a regular tasting salty biscuit. A mild touch of sweetness is present too.
Texture: These biscuits are not as smooth as those made using maida. Nonetheless, they are super crispy. The added oil and clarified butter lend a nice crunch to these biscuits. These are slightly oily and feel greasy on the hands. That being said, they do not feel heavy on the palette.
Nutrition Label: Lastly, talking about the ingredient list we found that these biscuits contain about 64.3% of atta and no other kind of flour has been used here. There are two sources of fat added – clarified butter and edible vegetable oil (palm oil and palmolein oil). We appreciate the use of clarified butter since it is a good source of fat. However, the use of palm oil and palmolein oil could have been swapped with better alternatives.
It also contains added flavor (cheese) and artificial flavoring substances (butter) apart form stabiliser, soya lecithin, invert syrup, liquid glucose and dextrose.
