The Quest for Natural Protein
RENTIO was established with the sole purpose to provide Natural Protein to the citizens of India. On the quest to find the best source of natural protein, we found the Desi Toor Dal and thus Rentio was born. For over 85 years, Rentio has been the pioneer of the packed pulses industry by providing Toor dal that is rich in natural protein and retains its natural sweetness. Rentio uses a unique dry process to clean Toor dal which was devised in our in-house facility after years of research and testing.
Our Unique Dry Process
For years, toor dal has been processed with water to separate its skin and split it into two parts. But due to the moisture, toor dal tends to lose its nutritional value. This is why after years of research, Rentio has developed its own unique dry process.
In Many of the Toor dal manufacturing plants, toor has been processed with water to separate its skin and split it into two parts. use of water makes the process easier but at the same time, it has an adverse effect on the nutritional value of toor dal. But due to the moisture, toor dal tends to lose its natural PROTEIN. This is why from the beginning, Rentio has developed its own Unique DRY Process.
