A development changing the world history has recently happened in our country. The facts unearthed in Göbeklitepe, Şanlıurfa, has caused the history to be rewritten. A major one of these changes is that Anatolian territories became the motherland of wheat . Wheat has been cultivated in these territories since B.C. 8000s and preserves its place as the honor guest of our tables.
As a result of the recent smear campaigns against using white flour , its consumption which used to be 10 millions of tons in a year has decreased 4.5 tons and caused great harm on the economy, growers and industrialists in the country. However, it is so ironic that nobody holding those claims have proven anything about that yet.
Despite such great smear campaigns , after 3,5 year R&D, we have finally achieved to produce Diabetic Flour which we were dreaming of for many years. Besides after 1,5 year approval process, we achieved to put our product on the market shelves.
Slimini Diabetic Flour is the result of a big dream and a challenge for turning it into reality. Our Slimini brand keeps extending its product range with the slogan of “the Basics of Healthy Nutrition” and continues its research and development activities without a break.
