Is achaar good for health?
Can’t get enough of your favourite pickle? That’s not a problem! In fact, it is recommended to include at least a spoonful of achaar with your meals every day. It’s hard to believe that something so delicious could also ensure holistic health.
By incorporating achaar in your daily diet, you are doing wonders to your digestive health. Pickles help create probiotic bacteria in the gut that ensures smooth functioning of the digestive tract while simultaneously preventing problems such as indigestion and constipation.
Stock up on your favourite achaar bottles this season to ensure you are getting the recommended dose of vitamins and minerals! The nutritional profile of pickles is quite impressive – rich in Vitamin A, C, K and minerals like iron, calcium, potassium are all important, and now super easy to include with your meals.
There’s no denying that Indian pickles are absolutely delicious, bursting with flavour and intricate aromas, but that isn’t the only reason our mothers and grandmothers paraded us with one spoonful of achaar after the other; the versatility of each ingredient used in the making of achaar offers more health benefits than most of the foods we eat today. They are packed with antioxidants that act as a natural immunity-booster and help combat a host of infections and diseases.
And the best part is, our jars of achaar go well with almost every dish- whether Indian or Western. Being healthy has never been so easy before!
