Fura de nunu (aged milk and millet blend) is an exceptionally nutritious drink which is a two-in-one item, comprising of oat, ” Fura produced using millet grains and nunu a matured milk item (with corrosive taste) like yogurt. The acrid taste is particularly suited for extinguishing thirst and soaking the hot impact of spicy foods.
Nunu is a scrumptious and invigorating drink that evolved empirically a few centuries back by permitting milk to sharp at warm temperature . The maturation happens suddenly without starter societies at encompassing temperature. The matured milk is then beaten utilizing a wooden scoop. Fat gathers as an after effect of the beating and is expelled.
Medical advantages of Fura ( Millet):
Heart Protective Properties:
One type of phytonutrient especially abundant in whole grains including millet are plant lignans, which are converted by friendly flora in our intestines into mammalian lignans, including one called enterolactone that is thought to protect against breast and other hormone-dependent cancers as well as heart disease.
Eating foods high in insoluble fiber, such as millet, can help women avoid gallstones, shows a study published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology. How do foods rich in insoluble fiber help prevent gallstones? Researchers think insoluble fiber not only speeds intestinal transit time (how quickly food moves through the intestines), but reduces the secretion of bile acids (excessive amounts contribute to gallstone formation), increases insulin sensitivity and lowers triglycerides (blood fats). Abundant in all whole grains, insoluble fiber is also found in nuts and the edible skin of fruits and vegetables including tomatoes, cucumbers, many squash, apples, berries, and pears. In addition, beans provide insoluble as well as soluble fiber.
Although oats have been widely publicized for their heart-protective properties, millet is a grain that should also be included on your list of heart-healthy choices because of its status as a good source of magnesium. Magnesium has been shown in studies to reduce the severity of asthma and to reduce the frequency of migraine attacks. Magnesium has also been shown to lower high blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart attack, especially in people with atherosclerosis or diabetic heart disease.
Fermented Milk (Nunu):
‘The cancer and cholesterol lowering properties of traditionally fermented milk are accrued from the probiotic bacteria’.
Alleviation of lactose intolerance:
Lactase is the sugar found in milk and dairy products and is normally processed by the digestive enzyme lactase, which breaks it down into simple sugars. Some people lack or do not have sufficient amounts of lactase to process lactose, which passes in the gut undigested and can cause gastrointestinal disorders, such as cramps, bloating and diarrhea. Yoghurt offers a very important advantage: it allows for the easy digestibility of lactose. The live microorganisms found in yoghurt act on lactose, predigesting it and converting it to a more digestible form. Those who suffer from lactose intolerance are able to consume this fermented milk as a substitute to milk and other dairy products, benefiting from nutrients that they would otherwise lack. Probiotics including L. bulgaricus, S.thermophilus, L.acidophilus help those with this condition.
Help to alleviate diarrhea:
Diarrhea can be caused by viral infections or the infiltration of pathogenic bacteria into the gastrointestinal tract. Yoghurt and fermented milks that contain live culture, notably L.rhamnossus GG, L.reuteri L.acidophilus, L.bulgaricus and B.longum can play a helpful role in restoring the imbalance of micro flora in cases of diarrhea resulting from antibiotic treatment. Probiotics have proven to be beneficial in cases of acute diarrhea in young children (rotavirus diarrhea).
