They would provide high nutritional value and also boost immunity.
The products have been launched with the assistance of Indian Institute of Spices Research, Kozhikode, that found that the bioactives in the spices, if properly segregated and mixed with proteins in pure milk, would help boost the immunity.
The products were launched here by forests, wildlife, animal husbandry and diary development minister K Raju, agriculture minister V S Sunil Kumar, KTDC chairman and former speaker M Vijayakumar and Milma chairman P A Balan.
Raju said that the products will be of major relief to both the dairy as well as spices farmers, and the products are also the need of the hour. The minister also said that the state currently produces 94% of the milk consumed by it, and the Malabar region of Milma plays a crucial role in it.
Agriculture minister Sunil Kumar said that the state is fast moving towards a self-sufficient state in terms of milk production, and Milma is playing a key role in it. He said that it is through boosting the immunity that pandemics like Covid-19 should be contained, and the latest products from Milma will help in achieving the goal.
Meanwhile, Milma registered a record sale in the three days of Pooradam, Uthradam and Thiruvonam days that fell on August 29, 30 and 31, respectively. Milma sold 61 lakh litres of milk and seven lakh litres of curd on these three days. In order to ensure sufficiency of milk on these days, Milma had mobilised milk from Karnataka and Tamil Nadu in addition to mobilising milk from the dairy farmers in the state.
