VedaFood’s vision is to help people avoid/solve many health problems with proper diet and lifestyles.
VedaFood’s mission is to develop disease specific, affordable, pre-packaged, all natural food and life style products, starting with Diabetes, to facilitate diet and lifestyle change for improved health and wellness.
Dr. Jay (Vaijayanti) Apte has been practicing Ayurvedic medicine for more than 40 years. About 3 years ago, in one day she saw 3 patients, all different ages and from different backgrounds, who had been diagnosed as diabetic.
All 3 patients asked her the same two questions:
During her market research to answer the second question, she was shocked to find out that there were hardly any packaged food choices available for diabetics and pre-diabetics. She also did not find any aisles in the grocery stores marked “diabetic foods”. As a result, most diabetics today have to spend enormous amounts of time, energy and money going through 15 different aisles of a grocery store to collect the so called “right foods” for them. Further research showed that diabetics are often confused with sometimes conflicting or simply too much advice on what they should eat and what they should not.
Birth of VedaFoods
This got Dr. Jay thinking, and that’s when the idea of VedaFoods was born. With her background in Ayurvedic (Holistic), Allopathic (Modern or Western medicine), Nutritional science and her excellent culinary skills, she has created, after 3 years of efforts, VedaFoods to offer maximum convenience, ease of use and most importantly peace of mind for diabetics. Taking the best knowledge from the 3 sciences, she has created 5 minute, 1-pot recipes that offer the “right foods” with delicious taste to help control blood-sugar on a daily basis.
Veda Food’s new diabetic-friendly product line will eventually include products in 3 main categories – starting with Pilafs for Lunch and Dinner, and in the near future Crepes for breakfast and Snacks. Pilafs contain roasted grains such as Barley, Samo Rice and Honey (recommended by Ayurveda 5000 years ago). To offer a variety, she has created 5 different versions: Exotic Indian, Toscao Italiano, Zesty Mexican, Mandarin Chinese and Tangy Thai. All varieties contain healing spices with medicinal properties for additional health benefits. We hope you will love all of them and use them on a daily basis for maximum benefits.
