Taali Water Lily Pops - The ingredients of our success
It’s true what they say
what’s on the inside is what matters. Today, we want to delve into what’s inside our delicious, guilt-free snacks and take you behind the scenes of Taali.
Let’s start with our star ingredient — water lily pops. What exactly are they?
Water lily pops pops are made from the seeds of water lilies, which are mainly found in the northern regions of India. Once the seeds are harvested, they’re carefully popped and roasted to ultimately become your favorite plant-based snack!
The reason why this superfood snack or makhana, as it is fondly known in India, is a much preferred alternative to greasy, fried snacks is because it has Ayurvedic, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties while also being rich in magnesium.
about the flavors?
A lot of thought has gone into the selection of our flavors because we didn’t just want to make them delicious. Nutritional benefits is a big part of why we do what we do, so let’s break down the flavors to help you see the goodness of our pops better.
Salted snacks are a hit already, but we wanted to put our own spin on them, a Himalayan spin, to be precise. The result is a much loved flavor that’s delicious. This salt is sourced all the way from the Himalayan range and is the most natural salt in the world. The combination of Himalayan pink salt with our roasted makhana is a match made in superfood heaven, promise!
Sriracha is a powerful condiment that gets its spicy flavor from red chilli peppers. These peppers contain capsaicin which improves metabolism and reduces hunger, thus aiding in weight loss. But what really makes Sriracha a hit is its spicy, sweet and tangy profile. We’ve recreated the magic of Sriracha using only natural ingredients that are full of flavor and oh so delicious.
The benefit is in the name itself. Turmeric is a popular spice and medicinal herb that is rich in antioxidants; this property helps reduce the risk of many diseases. We’ve combined the goodness of turmeric with the joy of dried mango and tangy tamarind to make our vegan* protein snacks high in flavor and health benefits, both!
Can cheese be healthy, you ask? Why, yes! White cheddar ranks high on the nutritional chain because it’s high in calcium, proteins and vitamin K making it great for our heart and bones. We’ve combined the goodness of real white cheddar with our lily pops to make a snack that is cheesy AND good for you.
It’s true, we love our spices. Our mix of tikka masala is a perfect blend of turmeric, garlic, cumin, ginger, and a lot more spices that are known for their health benefits.
- Garlic lowers the risk of heart diseases.
- Cumin seeds aid in weight loss.
- Turmeric is a powerful medicinal herb.
- Ginger contains anti-inflammatory properties.
We’ve taken all these spices and turned them into a pack full of flavor and nutrition.
A combination that is going to transport you back to cozy winter mornings, this one’s for all those who have a sweet tooth. What makes this Cinnamon and Vanilla variant even more valuable is the fact that cinnamon is loaded with antioxidants, while vanilla extract is good for your heart, hair and skin!
We’ve reinvented this classic cookie variant with the same old crunch, but WITHOUT the use of flour or nuts. These yummy healthy snacks are guaranteed to take you back to your good ol’ childhood days.
