There are so many superfoods out that do not get their due importance in a world where kale, seaweed, acai berries, receive a lot of hype. In such a scenario, the benefits associated with Indian superfoods is also often overlooked. Protein plays an important role in weight loss and that’s why experts stress on the importance of amping up protein intake. Chicken, eggs, paneer, tofu, protein powders are all good sources of protein, but there’s an equally good and an inexpensive protein source we often ignore – “sattu.” The best thing about sattu is that it is 100% plant based – so absolutely good for vegetarians and vegans as well. Sattu is made by roasting and powdering Bengal gram, and in some regions, besan is added for extra flavour. It’s popular as a summer drink as it cools down the body and replenishes nutrients and minerals lost through sweating and dehydration. As we have already mentioned, sattu has not received enough credit even though it’s rich in nutrients and amazingly, has weight loss benefits too.

It’s not just the high protein content, here’s what makes sattu a weight-loss friendly food.
