The same energy is used to dehydrate the food products which reduces its moisture content and enriches the taste.
“It all began at my father in law; Dr. Suhas Nandurdikar’s native place Jalgaon, a small town in Maharashtra. We were enjoying our Sunday morning chilling at a farm, where we saw some fruits & vegetables drying in the sun. Intrigued, I asked the field workers why they were drying out in the sun. And they said it was just for regular domestic consumption. This instantly took me back to all that I had read and studied about how our ancestors used the process of sun drying to enhance the quality of farm produce. It made me wonder how this marvellous indigenous science has been forgotten by most of us. It simply doesn’t have a place in the urban lifestyle. So I started thinking about how I could bring this science back in vogue and use it as part of a chemical-free, organic process that delivers comfort, convenience and nutrition to the people of India. S oon, more people joined me on my journey and we worked together on this philosophy that formed the basis of NIHKAN.”

Harnessing the power of the sun to aid in drying food products is not only the best planet friendly method but also the most time-honoured method that has been used for centuries.
At NihKan, all our products are carefully selected from farms and handled at a state of the art ISO 22000 certified – “Sun Dehydration facility” without any application of chemical & electronic processes.
