Raigam launches revolutionary "Deveni Batha – Bundi Full" instant rice noodle - celebrating the fifth anniversary of "Raigam Deveni Batha"

After five years of launching Raigam Deveni Batha - a 100% rice based noodle, we are ready for the next encounter of the revolutionary Deveni Batha - the Bundi Full instant rice noodle. The research and development effort of Raigam Group was able to overcome the hurdles technologically and this is a delicious and complete meal which can be prepared in few minutes. We assure that the Bundi full noodle contains only the rice flour and water, besides it does not contain any chemical ingredients to maintain taste, shape and the flexibility of noodle. Very importantly it does not contain Mono Sodium Glutamate (MSG) or any artificial coulouring as used in other similar products in the market and it is evident with the ingredients disclosed in the back panel of the wrappers of similar products available in the market. Further, as the Bundi Full is made of 100% rice, that contains the ingredient named “Squalene” which controls the cholesterol level in the body.

This unique product come to your hand as a 100 g single portion pack, contains separate sachets with seasoning, natural flavours, minced soya and dehydrated vegetable. Raigam Deveni Batha – Bundi Full is presented in six different varieties to match the taste buds of any age group; namely - Chicken, Hot Masala Chicken, Devilled Chicken, Chicken Kottu, Sea Food and Curry. It is a product made out of rice grown on our own soil. This quick and easy prep meal will fulfill the nutrition requirements of our future generation and will fit in to their busy life schedules. Rice being our main source of nourishment for eras, this will be the perfect food substitute for our body as well as mind.

One of the main reasons for diabetes, a major health hazard we Sri Lankans are facing today is due mainly to the consumption of wheat flour. Deveni Batha – Bundi Full now offers an opportunity to continue one’s consumption pattern and enjoy their favorite noodles preparation by eating rice-flour food products in place of wheat flour. It will contribute immensely to up lift the food habits of future generations as well we all are eventually strengthening the agriculture industry of the country.

The harvest of the Bata-Atha Saltern in Hambanthota will be processed at the Bata-atha Industrial Park where Raigam will be putting up a refining plant before the year is out.
