Pendana Fortified Maize Meal

Overview

Pendana Maize flour was the first maize meal to be fortified in Kenya. It has been enriched with 6 essential vitamins and Iron. It is fortified with Vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, Niacin, Folate and Iron.

Maize flour is made from grinding of the entire maize kernel to milled flour. It contains protein as well as fat. Most vitamins are concentrated in the outer layer if the grain which is the Bean and Germ. The layer is removed during the milling process, resulting in loss of some critical vitamins. Enrichment and fortification of the maize flour is a means of replenishing the lost minerals and vitamins.

The maize flour has been fortified with vitamins and minerals making it healthier and more nutritious for the whole family. The flour offers great taste, value and energy for the family.

PENDANA maize flour is finely ground creating a refined maize meal taste for the entire family including a weaning option for mother.

It is good for porridge as well as maize meal options like Ugali.
