Special flour used by Rajasthan women for good health

Special flour used by Rajasthan women

A Special flour which is being used in Rajasthan is helping people in rural Rajasthan get higher nutrition. In the tribal dominated areas of Salumbar and Sarada there was widespread malnutrition among children. A small sized health revolution is now underway here.

Since September 2012, people are being encouraged to consume wheat flour fortified with micronutrients such as iron, folic acid, and Vitamin B12 as part of the initiative by Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) and Institute of Health Management Research (IHMR), Jaipur, which is being implemented by the Bhoruka Charitable Trust (BCT).

After using this special flour there was a tremendous change. “I don’t get tired very soon these days and even my husband’s knee pain has reduced considerably. It’s great to be healthy and energetic,” shares Sumitra, the anganwadi worker of Singhavat village.

Vijay Joshi, a physical training instructor has stated that “The children in my village are now actively participating in sports and they all love running. I have noticed this change ever since they started eating the special ‘rotis’.


This is definitely wonderful news for the rural areas and hopefully this special flour will spread to other regions too.
