The Grain Flakes 40+ product is a combination of kurakkan and green gram. According to the press release, it provides a balanced breakfast for the health conscious. This product too does not contain artificial colours and flavours and was awarded the prize for product of the year with local raw materials at the 2009 Pro Foods exhibition.
