5 Reasons Why Native Milk’s Chenna Poda Is the Healthy Answer to Your Dessert Cravings
Chenna Poda is a traditional delicacy from the state of Odisha. It is also fondly offered in the Lord Jagannath temple, and the locals of Puri, India, consider it to be the Lord’s favourite dessert. It is also offered to Goddess Durga during the Durga Puja celebrations in West Bengal. Chenna Poda means “burnt sweet cheese” and was accidentally discovered by Sudarshan Sahu in the year 1947 in a small town in Odisha.
Although it is a delicacy of Odisha, it is loved by people across the country. Now, the delicacy of East India is easily available in West India with a healthy twist. Native Milk has made this nostalgic dessert, popularly known as ‘Indian Cheesecake’, available in Pune and Mumbai. Our primary goal was to ensure that Odisha’s traditional taste was retained while creating a healthier version of Chenna Poda.
Here are 5 reasons why Native Milk’s Chenna Poda is the healthy answer to your dessert cravings.
Reason 1: Made from A2 Milk
The ‘chenna’ in Chenna Poda is a milk-based product and we, at Native Milk, make it using our farm-fresh A2 milk. The presence of A2 milk instantly increases its nutritional value, making it a healthier alternative. Switching your dairy foods from A1 milk-based products to A2 milk-based products comes with a lot of health benefits like:
- Easily digestible and suitable, in small quantities, for those with milk allergies or lactose intolerance.
- Considered to be the most suitable alternative for a mother’s natural breast milk and also helps enhance the production of milk in lactating mothers.
- Aids in the absorption of Vitamin D.
- Clears up cholesterol deposits because of the rich Omega 3 content.
- Improves brain functionality and does not have morphine-like effects like A1 milk.
Reason 2: Filled with nutrients
By passing on the nutrients of A2 milk in the Chenna Poda, Native Milk’s Chenna Poda is low in fat, is one of the best sources of calcium and Vitamin D as a dessert, and has a high protein content making it a healthy dessert.
Reason 3: It is baked, not fried
Unlike the other popular Indian sweets, Chenna Poda is baked and not fried, thereby making it a perfect combination of taste and health. Fried food often contains a large amount of oil which is very harmful to the body and poses a higher risk of heart-related ailments. Fried desserts like jalebi or banana fritters are filled with fat, whereas extra care is taken to make the baked Chenna Poda contain low fat and more protein.
Reason 4: Comes in different flavours with healthy add-ons
By adding dates, a natural sweetener, the baked dessert is made even healthier than desserts loaded with processed sugar. Processed sugar has been criticised for increasing the risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes and heart diseases in those who consume it in large quantities regularly.
Jaggery is also another natural sweetener added to the Chenna to create a delicious baked dessert. This natural source of sweetness also aids in digestion and, together with the goodness of A2 milk, creates the perfect healthy dessert to meet your sugar cravings!
Reason 5: Keeps you feeling full for longer
Instead of finishing packets of chocolates or several sweets to satiate your sweet tooth, just a small slice of Chenna Poda can do the trick! Since Chenna Poda is made from A2 milk, anyone consuming it feels full for longer and does not have random hunger pangs. The Chenna Poda can also be stored in your refrigerator for a couple of days so that you enjoy the healthy dessert whenever you want.
