Is Quick Kalakand healthy?

No, Kalakand is not healthy and we need to see what it is made off. Made from paneer, milk powder and sugar.

Let's understand the Ingredients.

What's good.

Paneer : Paneer contains high quality protein and calcium which aids in weight loss.

This leads to diabetes and further onwards to heart attack, high blood pressure, strokes, impotence and kidney damage. To live a healthy life, try and cut sugar which from your diet. It requires a slow and deliberate attempt to do it. Find hidden sugar in packaged foods and drinks and stop having those products. Did you know that a can of your favourite soft drink is estimated to have 1/2 cup of sugar. Refinded carbohydrates like maida, sugar, bread, pasta, noodles and sugar on consumption get stored as unhealthy fat in the body.
