Just like the title suggests, this brand is known for food that is ideal for the health-conscious. This is a HACCP certified brand and all their flours are natural and organic, sourced from farmers. We're not talking the regular flour, these guys have buckwheat flour, brown rice flour, barley, and even amaranth flour to keep you hale and hearty. Twice in fiber and protein, if you lift, this is ideal for you. Prices range from INR 160 - INR 270 for packs of 500g.
No Chapati Dish Suggestions: Use the amaranth flour along with other flours in baked products as these are natural thickeners. They'd even make for some delectable tikkis.
This brand doesn't have an extensive range of flours but we can assure you that what they do have is high in quality. Try out Green Sense's Quinoa flour, Buckwheat Flour and Multi-grain flour that is organic and chemical-free. Their flours are sourced from farmers who only practice organic agriculture and these are all unadulterated, rich in fibres. For the lightest cakes and breads, check out this brand. These come in a pack of two, priced from INR 270 - INR 360.

Leanbeing keeps true to its name with its range of keto flours. They're best known for their gluten-free keto flour that has a blended mix of ground seeds and nuts, ideal to make rotis to mop up those rich curries. They also have keto coconut flour- best for gluten-free baking. Available in 1kg packs priced from INR 299 - INR 540, you could buy them once and have them stocked up for as long as you need. There's even rolled-oats flour that's a great source of carbs, fibres and proteins and best suited for bodybuilders.

Wellversed is another brand known for its keto flours and we can't help but talk about the fact that these are not just tasty but also super healthy. They sell quinoa flour, gluten-free flour and a special zero sugar flour for those with diabetes. These have 30% more protein than regular flour. For those of you on a keto diet, we highly suggest this brand's products and we must say, the prices were a tad high for 750g of flour - INR 199 to INR 424.
No Chapati Dish Suggestions: Whip up some super healthy yet delectable khakras as tea-time snacks.
TWF deserves a spot in this list not just because they sell healthy organic wheat but also because they ground wheat as and when you place an order. Unprocessed and unbleached, this is indeed what you can call chakki fresh atta. While we don't simp over 'round rotis,' we really wouldn't mind flavourful ones as their Highland Wheat Flour is a tad sweet. Want something low in gluten? Their Reliq range will have you sorted. The flour sacks are available in sizes from 1kg to 2kg for around INR 298 - INR 598.
Note: Order from their website and get fresh ground-to-order flour at your doorstep.
No Chapati Dish Suggestions: The slight sweetness from the Highland flour means these are perfect for whole wheat pizza bases.
