benefits of methi

    1. Low Calorie : One cup of methi leaves gives only 13 calories making it a good choice for those controlling their calorie intake. It will not only add bulk to your diet but also will make you feel fuller. You will feel satiated for a longer period and refrain from eating extra calories. 
    2.

Care should be taken while cooking as Vitamin C is easily destroyed with heat. Avoid overcooking of Vitamin C rich vegetables.
    3. See benefits of methi leaves, fenugreek leaves.


benefits of maize flour

    1. Is maize flour good for weight loss? Maize flour is prepared from corn kernels which is a good source of fibre. The insoluble fibre from maize flour aids in weight loss. It will add bulk to your diet that will make you feel full sooner. Fibre stays in the stomach for longer than other contents and makes you feel satiated helping you to avoid eating in between meals. 
    2. Is maize flour good for diabetes? Being a good source of fibre, corn meal helps to prevent your blood glucose levels from shooting up. Fibre blunts the glycemic response of the meal. Therefore, it is very important for diabetics to include a lot of fibre. Being a good source of zinc, maize flour will help to manage your blood glucose levels because zinc is necessary for the formation of insulin in the pancreas's beta cells. Insulin help to keep your blood glucose levels from getting too high.
