- Helpful for people suffering from coeliac disease
People with the coeliac disease develop an immune reaction to gluten, a protein found in many food items we eat. By consuming gluten-filled foods, their small intestinal lining gets damaged after inflammation.

- The goodness of hand pounded food.
The white rice we consume or see in the grocery shop is polished rice. When paddy comes from the farm, it goes through hulling (husk removed) and milling (barn removed). Due to polishing, the rice loses its barn, after which we get white rice, which is ready to cook.
During hulling and milling, rice grain is stripped out of all major nutrients, leaving only starch with it. Organic hand-pounded red rice doesn't go through this process. Tools such as stone grinders, mortar & pestle are employed to get hand-pounded red rice. Due to pounding, the husk gets separated, some rice grains break, and some of the barns get separated. However, it still retains most of the nutrients.
By using an organic method, Daily Kneads ensures that their consumers get completely organic food that retains all its nutrients naturally.
