ASAL ensures that the wholesomeness of its food products is retained through natural food production and hand processing techniques. Crops are grown organically without the use of pesticides or artificial fertilizers. ASAL products do not use seeds that are hybrid or genetically modified. The products are hand processed using traditional time tested methods and do not require cold storage nor contain any synthetic preservatives.
ASAL products include a wide array of preparations prescribed by Ayurvedic physicians called Vedrajs (literally meaning king of Vedas) that are made with the Ayurvedic understanding of Kapha, Pitta and Vayu – the three Doshas or body elements that are balanced in order to maintain physical and thus spiritual wellbeing.
ASAL’s organic food recipes are guided by Vedraj Bhaskar Bhai Hardikar, Pranav Bhai Dave and Suhas Bhai Devaskar. All ASAL products are hand processed following traditional methods thereby promoting culture and craft, providing employment opportunities and adopting sustainable practices.
