Health Benefits of Skimmed Milk

Skimmed milk is a low-calorie and low-fat version of traditional full-fat milk. Many people hold this notion that nutrients of regular fat milk are withered-off from skimmed milk. But, this isn’t true as skim milk is prepared through the process of centrifugal separation where only fat molecules are extracted from the milk.

Is skim milk healthy?

Check out some health benefits of skimmed milk that will encourage you to have skim milk daily.

  1. High in Protein
    Skim Milk contains all nine amino acids that are beneficial in maintaining lean muscles. Therefore, having skim milk protein helps to build muscles more quickly and further to maintain them well. Also, skim milk contains casein protein which is easy to digest. Therefore, having skim milk is healthy for those looking for a safe, natural and rich source of protein.
  2. Rich Source of Calcium
    We all know milk is the best source of calcium but did you know that skimmed milk provides more calcium than the whole milk variants? There are various tissues in our body that need calcium to function and having a cup of skim milk can provide 30% of daily calcium requirements.
  3. Aids Weight loss
    Skimmed milk is prepared by skimming off the cream that contains fat hence making it a low-fat drink. The absence of saturated fat helps prevent weight gain but offers the same amount of goodness as of whole milk. Therefore, having skimmed milk for weight loss is the best choice.
  4. Rich in Minerals
    Skimmed milk is rich in essential minerals such as selenium, phosphorous, magnesium, potassium, zinc, and calcium. Potassium helps in the proper regulation of blood pressure and heart function. Whereas, calcium we know helps build strong bones and teeth.
  5. Low in Cholesterol
    High cholesterol can lead to various heart diseases. For those suffering from high cholesterol levels or want to maintain healthy levels of cholesterol, switching to skimmed milk is a healthy option.

Note: Children under the age of two years should not drink skim milk as it does not have enough fat required for infant’s healthy growth.

If you are looking for skim milk in India or in Chandigarh, consider buying Verka Skim Milk. Pasteurised and hygienically packed in advanced milk processing plants, Verka skim milk meets the requisite FSSAI standards.

Verka Kheer – The Best Alternate for Traditional Sweets & Creamy Desserts

Kheer is the most endearing sweet dish in India and as mentioned in the Ayurveda. Kheer was also a part of the ancient Indian diet. Rice Kheer is also served as an offering to god to show respect and love. It has different names in different parts of the country. If we look back, it has been proven that kheer was a part of the ancient Indian diet. Romans used the sweet kheer dessert as a stomach coolant and also, as a detox diet.

Health benefits of Rice Kheer

  1. When Rice Kheer is made with natural ingredients, it is very healthy and comes across as a better alternative to other sweet treats. It has fewer calories and offers 4 grams of protein. Every 5-ounce serving provides a small amount of both vitamin A and vitamin C. Also, it’s a good source of calcium and low in cholesterol.
  2. It has a cooling effect on the body, which is helpful in the summer when the pitta dosha (the subtle energy that controls metabolism and can cause us to overheat) dominates.
  3. Rice is a great source of carbohydrates which helps in restoring your glycogen that gets depleted from the muscles after exercising.
  4. Milk that is one of the main rice kheer ingredients contains proteins and carbohydrates that help your body assimilate the amino acids which are required to perform all its important tasks.
  5. It can help you lose weight as well and is the best alternative for coffee or tea since it is very light.

Note: Avoid kheer or take in less quantity if you have poor digestion.

Verka Kheer is available in two flavours; traditional and kesar. Verka Kheer as a dessert is extremely delicious and when served chilled, there is no alternative to this delicacy. We all know that nothing can beat the insatiable pleasure derived from sweet delicacies especially during festivals. But, we all are aware that how adulterated sweets are being sold in the market especially during festivals that are harmful to our health. Therefore, Verka kheer is a healthy alternative to traditional sweets and creamy desserts like burfi, gulab jamun, ice cream, but like most desserts, should only be enjoyed on special occasions.

Tips to Buying, Storing and Cooking Milk!

We all are well aware of the health benefits of drinking milk but have you ever thought of how milk should be stored? How long does it last? What are the servings? Which milk is good for you – cow or buffalo milk? Which milk to buy – raw or pasteurised milk?

If you are looking for an answer to all the above questions, here are some easy milk tips to consider while buying, storing and cooking milk.  

Buying Milk:

  • Buy milk and other dairy products at the end of your grocery shopping as this will make sure that the dairy products won’t get spoiled during summers and you will end up taking them home in a fresh state.
  • If you are planning to store milk for long, consider buying milk with opaque packing or a UHT Milk. The transparent packing milk is prone to sunlight and can lose vitamins after exposure.
  • Once you take them home, place it in the refrigerate as soon as possible

Storing Milk:

  • Do not store milk in the refrigerator door as it is opened frequently. Opening and closing door again and again makes it prone to warmer air getting in. Therefore, always store your milk in the main compartment on the back side of the refrigerator.
  • Always store milk in an airtight container to avoid absorbing the flavours of other products stored in the refrigerator.

Always consider these milk storage guidelines to make sure that your milk and dairy products last longer and remain fresh.

Boiling Milk:

  • Do not boil milk on a high flame
  • Do not heat the milk repeatedly or for an extended period of time
  • Stir the milk with a spoon while boiling
  • After boiling your milk, refrigerate it immediately

Cooking with Milk:

  • Replace water with fresh milk to add extra softness and moisture to your bakery products.
  • To prepare creamier soups, replace water with milk.
  • Adding some milk into the batter can make your omelette fluffier.

Verka has a huge variety of milk available in pouch packing and UHT packing. Verka pouch milk is available in 7 variants; full cream, standard, toned, double toned, skimmed, cow milk and institutional pack. Verka UHT milk is available in 4 variants; Fresh+, Standardized, Toned, and Double Toned. To explore other Verka milk products, click here.

Why have milk and dairy products for breakfast?

Are you skipping milk in your breakfast by choice or because of lack of time?

Having milk for breakfast adds calcium and high-quality protein as well as other essential nutrients to your diet. Getting these vitamins and minerals first thing in the morning helps kick start on your nutrient requirements for the day.

Dairy for Kids:
Think about a child who skipped his breakfast and has not eaten for past 10-12 hours and is trying to focus in school. Breakfast is an important meal of the day that fuels kids with energy and nutrients that helps make them concentrate and perform well during the day. Milk also promotes bone health and kids overall growth & development. Studies show that those who have dairy products and milk for breakfast regularly, get more nutrients than those who don’t.

If you/your child is not happy having milk for breakfast, take a look at these nutritional dairy breakfast recipes and ideas:

  1. Eggs: This is definitely on top of the list of nutritional breakfast ideas. Make scrambled eggs with milk; add salt, pepper, capsicum and your other favorite veggies.
  2. Oats: Cook oats in milk and add some fruits, nuts and a little honey. And, your dairy breakfast is ready in a few minutes!
  3. Grilled Sandwich: Take whole grain bread; add some veggies, paneer and cheese spread. And your dose of dairy is added to the breakfast!

Celebrate Diwali with Verka Packaged Sweets

Preparing Sweets is one of the most important happenings before Diwali. Though there are many attractions for Diwali like crackers, new films, new seasons of clothing etc., tasting great Diwali sweets is always the prime attraction. Those days are gone when people used to prepare sweets a week before Diwali. We end up buying sweets from local sweet shops.

During Diwali days, mithai shops are all decked up with a variety of sweets. But, we don’t know what goes on behind the scenes of these mithai workshops. Quite often, in order to make bulk quantities of sweets, the quality is compromised.

Before you gulp down your favorite milk cake bought from that local sweet shop, let’s enlighten you with the food adulteration that is trending in the tri-city, especially during festive days!

It is observed in many surveys that the samples collected from local sweet shops are found to be using sub-standard flour and low-grade fats. Every year, the milk samples collected from these merchants are found adulterated with urea, detergents, refined oil, dry milk, and starch. Consuming sweets prepared with this milk can lead to skin diseases, hair loss, stomach disorders, and even liver and kidney problems!

Exchanging sweets on Diwali is a way of spreading joy and goodwill among both the givers and the receivers. You need to be careful while buying, eating and distributing Diwali sweets gift packs with your loved ones as adulterated sweets can ruin your health and can also disturb your relations.

Having Diwali round the corner, Peda, Kaju Barfi, Til Milk Cake, Kaju Pinni are some of the Verka’s top-selling Diwali sweets. Verka Diwali sweets boxes are available in bright festive packaging, which are most suitable for gifting purposes! Also, the high standard of packaging retains the quality and freshness of sweets that is highly appreciated by all our customers.

Enrich the joy of Raksha Bandhan with Verka sweets!

Every Indian festival is incomplete without sweets. Whether you have a starter in your food menu or not, a sweet dish is always expected at the end of a meal. Indians usually have a sweet tooth and are quite used to saying “muh mitha krwaiye”. Sometimes they just try to find an occasion to indulge in sweets. Offering sweets in India is considered auspicious after big news such as graduation, admission or even when your board results come out! We are very good at finding ‘mithai toh banti hai’ occasions.

Mithai is also considered as a token of appreciation that Indians gift to their friends and relatives before and after attending weddings, and if by chance you forget to give this precious token, it’s almost considered a sin!

Local sweet shops and vendors that do not follow FSSAI standards often use unhealthy adulteration techniques to increase the quantity of their sweets. These sweets are then harmful for human consumption. Unlike these local sweet shops, Verka has a wide range of sweets that are prepared in hygienic conditions. For occasions like Raksha Bandhan, Diwali, Holi or Lohri, these sweets are a perfect buy to share and celebrate with family and friends. Check out some of Verka’s top sellers this season!

Which Milk is Healthier for you and your Family: Pasteurized or Raw?

In Indian diet, Milk and milk products are a main source of calcium. Tea is the most popular beverage in India, consumed almost in every house about twice a day. Milk is often used in Indian kitchen, mostly while preparing sweets such as Kheer, Pinni, Vermicelli, Gajar ka Halwa and many more.

Some prefer raw milk while others prefer pasteurized. Let’s take a look and decide which milk is healthier for us!

Raw Milk & Harmful Effects!

Local milkmen delivers raw milk to our doorstep, call it laziness or ignorance a lot of people that they still do not realize that the milk delivered to them is mixed water, urea, and in some cases even detergents are added. All these substances are used to increase the milk quantity and to make milk look whiter.

Despite knowing these adulteration techniques, still a lot of people consume raw milk which is harmful to health. According to experts, E. coli bacteria found in cow’s waste can easily mix with fresh milk if the cow is not washed in a proper manner which further can cause serious health issues such as Diarrhea, Vomiting, food poisoning, and life-threatening diseases such as listeriosis or haemolytic uraemic syndrome.

Pasteurization & Its Importance!

Pasteurized milk is considered to be healthy for a person to consume as the process kills disease causing germs, such as Campylobacter, E. coli, and Salmonella from milk.

Raw Milk Vs Pouch Milk!

Pasteurization does not reduce milk nutritional value. To put it in simple terms raw milk, gets contaminated quickly as compared to pasteurized milk. Even the slightest carelessness in milking the cow can lead to contamination of harmful bacteria which if consumed can prove to be fatal for your health. This is the main reason why pasteurized milk is preferred over raw milk.

Chocolate Milk: A Little Flavour and a Bundle of Nutrients!

Milk contains a unique combination of nutrients important for growth and development in kids, and for optimal health and disease prevention in adults.

While some like the taste of unflavored milk, others prefer flavored milk. With the childhood obesity crisis, many people have considered flavored milk unsuitable for kids due to high sugar content. Reducing the sugar intake from foods like sodas and candy makes more sense than reducing sugars from nutrient-rich foods like milk.

Why Flavored Milk
Flavoredmilk contains the same nutrients as white milk, yet contributes only a minor amount of added sugar to child’s diets. Soft drinks and non-carbonated sweetened beverages contribute 40% of the added sugars to the diets of children, whereas flavoured milk contributes only about 4% (~0.8 tsp) of added sugars.

Daily Calcium Intake
These days, kids are not very fond of having white milk and thus they fail to meet the daily calcium requirement that is essential for bone development and growth. Flavored milk is a low-cost, palatable beverage choice to help close the gap between calcium needs and intake.

Since many of the essential milk nutrients are difficult to replace, skipping just one serving of milk a day can put kids at nutritional disadvantage. Therefore, a study was conducted among kids of different age group and it was found that children prefer chocolate milk over the usual white milk and consume more overall, with less milk wastage.

Nutrients in Flavored Milk
Flavoured milk has all of the major nutrients found in unflavored milk – calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, protein, riboflavin, niacin and vitamins A, B12 and D and contributes only 3% of added sugars in the diets of children 2 – 18 years.

At a critical time when bones are being formed, only one in ten school-age girls and four in ten boys meet their calcium requirements. Those who compromise their bone health put themselves at risk for developing osteoporosis later in life. Verka Pio flavored milks give children another choice of meeting their calcium requirements and satisfying their taste buds. 

Verka Pio Chocolate Flavor

Verka Pio Chocolate Milk is hygienically packed in the state of the art facilities and meets the requisite FSSAI standards. Verka Pio is extremely popular across all age groups and provides calcium for strong bones and protein for active life.

Verka Pio Chocolate is available in 200ml Bottle throughout Tricity, selective areas of Himachal Pradesh, Haryana and New Delhi. 

Verka Cow Milk: The Best has Arrived!

Cow Milk has been known for its various health benefits and with increasing awareness, the demand for cow’s milk has also increased. The cow milk contains great amount of vitamins and minerals. Freshly drawn cow’s milk is yellowish white opaque liquid with sulphur which is a tonic for brain therefore, making a person mentally alert and physically agile.

For Infants, breast milk is best in the first 6 months of life, but in the absence of mother’s milk; cow milk should be preferred over buffalo. The percentage of volatile and soluble acids is greater in cow ghee, and consequently it is more easily digested. Therefore, cow milk, being easily digestible, is more beneficial to patients than buffalo milk.

Cow milk has less protein content than buffalo milk. The high protein makes the milk heavy and thus difficult to digest for infants and older population. 100ml of cow’s milk contains 70Kcals whereas 100ml of buffalo’s milk contains 100Kacls. So people who are on calorie restricted diet are again here advised to have cow’s milk to cut down the calorie consumption in the diet.

In addition, Dairy products especially milk is richly supplied with outstanding nutrients that are helpful for growth of fetus and health of pregnant mother. It is recommended for pregnant women to consume at least 3 cups of milk or other dairy products per day.

Verka launches its Cow Milk variant on October 1, 2016 at Rs. 42 per litre (500ml for Rs21). Verka’s cow milk is hygienically packed and homogenized milk with 4% fat. This variant will be available in Tricity (Chandigarh, Panchkula, Mohali), Jalandhar and Ludhiana. Furthermore, Verka will be expanding its cow milk supply to other areas of Punjab as well.
