Home made pickles vs factory made pickles or achars

Pickles or commonly known as achars are always regarded as a great taste booster to our regular diet, be it breakfast, lunch or dinner. We all relish the great taste of those pickles made by our grandmothers at home. But with evolution of nuclear families, job and city centric relocations in life we slowly migrated to factory made and ready to use food preparations especially for pickles. There has been a lot of discussion for long on whether pickles are healthy for consumption. Now with consumers becoming more health conscious the debate have shifted to which type of pickles should you prefer – home made pickles or factory made pickles ?

Ever wondered why pickles or achars made at home last for couple of weeks when factory made one last for several months or years ?

Most of these factory made pickles have to move through various channels like distributors and retailers for several days and months before they reach and is used by the final end customer.  Hence they are added with artificial preservatives and colourants that can improve the look and also life of the product by a couple of more months to years. By adding these chemicals, the good and natural taste of the pickles is also compromised.

Home made pickles on the other hand are made by mothers or grand mothers at home for their loved ones and also to be supplied to their friends and relatives near and far. They are obviously made with the best raw materials and spices available to them. These are for immediate consumption and do not have any preservatives or chemicals in them. They have the best taste and in no way harmful for daily consumption just like any dish or curry made at home.

Now comes the most asked question on where can I get the best home made pickles in my city. I live long away from my village and there is no way I can get home made pickles on a daily basis. This is where the role of direct to customer online ecommerce brands like NatureLoc.com comes to play.
