Overview

In India, wheat flour is used for making many major staple food items like chapati. However, gluten - a protein complex - present in wheat, barley and rye triggers an unwanted immune response in certain genetically predisposed individuals causing Celiac Disease (CD). A study conducted by Indian Task Force on Celiac Disease (2009) constituted by ICMR (Indian Council of Medical Research showed an increase in the prevalence of CD. ICMR advised Gluten free diet for management of CD. In India, the market size of gluten free products is estimated to be USD 120 million in 2020. (Source: Institute of Agribusiness Management, Bikaner, India). Also, consumption of multigrain foods in general population as a healthy lifestyle is growing due to the increase in the scientific evidence. In 2015, sales of overall health and wellness food products segment Rs. 10,000 crores. Out of which, Rs. 1250 crores were from multigrain atta segment (source: the economic times; Sep 05,2016). With increase in CD and demand for multi grain foods, BARC has developed a Gluten free (GF) premix using multigrain and radiation processed dietary fibre. This GF premixis low in price, better sensory attributes, high in soluble fibre and has a protein content equivalent to regular wheat flour.

BARC has developed a Gluten Free premix by combining various multigrain flours and radiation processed (RP) dietary fiber. Multigrains were judicially selected not only for better nutritional qualities but also for the bringing the price low. With increasing scientific evidences, demand for multigrain and high fiber food items is growing exponentially. Multigrain used in the developed premix is not only limited for special (=medical) dietary purposes but also for healthy individuals. Moreover, addition of RP dietary fiber not only improved total soluble fiber content but also sensory characteristics of the final product.

 ADVANTAGES

  • Low cost in its price when compared to other available brands.

  • Sensorial properties are closer to wheat chapatis as compared to the one prepared from already available commercial brands.

  • Protein content (12.9%) of the premix is similar to that of generally available wheat flour in the market (Calculated as per to Nutritive Value of Indian foods, 2014, National Institute of Nutrition).

  • Can be consumed by CD patients and healthy individuals.

Gluten Free - Multigrain premix

Detail Technical Brochure

ICMR (Indian Council of Medical Research) declared gluten Free (GF) diet as a cornerstone for management of celiac disease (CD). Gluten ― a protein complex, which is present in wheat, barley and ryetriggers an unwanted immune response in certain genetically predisposed individuals causing CD. In India, wheat flour is used for making many major staple food items like chapati. Developing a gluten free premix for CD is challenging. Although, many GF premixes are available in market they are either costlier or low in its sensory parameters. So, BARC has developed a GF premix by combining various multigrain flours and radiation processed (RP) dietary fiber. Multigrains were judicially selected not only for better nutritional qualities but also for the bringing the price low. Multigrain used in the developed premix is not only limited for special (=medical) dietary purposes but also for healthy individuals. Addition of RP dietary fiber improved the sensory characteristics of the product.

ADVANTAGES

  • Low cost in its price when compared to other available brands.
  • Sensorial properties are closer to wheat chapatis as compared to the one prepared from already available commercial brands.

APPLICATIONS

  • Protein content (12.9%) of the premix is similar to that of generally available wheat flour in the market.
  • High in soluble dietary fiber (11.7%) (Calculated as per to Nutritive Value of Indian foods, 2014, National Institute of Nutrition).
  • Can be consumed by CD patients and healthy individuals.

INFRASTRUCTURE REQUIREMENTS

a. Raw Materials

  • The raw materials required for preparation of RPPs-Gluten free premix are available locally.

b. Equipments

  • Weighing balance.
  • Powder mixer and sealer.
  • Packaging machines, Gamma irradiation facility (optional).

c. Space

  • A room of 450 ft2 area (30’ x 15’)for mixing flour and packaging.

d. Power

  • Both single & three phase power connection.

e. Manpower

  • One skilled worker and two un-skilled workers would be adequate for production of 100 kg per day. Actual manpower would depend on production capacity.
