Makhana/fox nuts are a rich source of good carbohydrates and proteins. They are gluten-free and contain a flavonoid called kaempferol, which has anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing properties. They are also high in magnesium, which is important for heart health and also the regulation of levels of calcium, potassium and sodium in the blood. Although, fox nuts are rich in carbohydrates, their glycaemic index is significantly lower than other foods like rice, bread, etc. Makhana is also rich in iron, which is important for haemoglobin formation in the blood and for optimum transportation of oxygen (through blood).
