Each and every Indian loves the Chapatis/Roti cooked home. But with changing lifestyle, people are forgetting the health benefits & advantages of chapatis made from chakki atta (wheat flour). Remember the times when our parents or grandparents use to buy wheat sacks & then carry it to the nearest mill for grinding. In this day and age this process seems a bit too stretched, however the nutritional value of stone grind wheat flour is much higher than most of packaged wheat flour available these days
Why wheat flour from Chakkis is better than regular packaged wheat flour?
Whole Wheat Flour
The word ‘whole’ refers to the fact that the entire grain( bran, germ, endosperm) is used and nothing is lost in the making of the flour.
Wheat germ has an abundance of vitamins and minerals, and is particularly rich in vitamin E. It is known to be the main source of the vitamin B complex in dietary structures and includes vitamins like thiamin, folic acid, vitamin B6, and minerals like manganese, magnesium, and zinc.

If you buy 100% whole wheat products, you get all the nutrients of the bran and the germ, as well as the endosperm.
