Food facts

The rooh afza and sugar are the main source of carbohydrate in this dish and the values have been provided for those who have trained in insulin adjustment.

Rooh afza is a source of potassium and should be limited to special occasions. Making a lemonade version is a lower potassium and phosphate alternative to a milk-based version. Those on a low potassium and low phosphate diet will need to consider how much rooh afza they drink in the context of whatever else they are eating that day.

There is very little protein in this drink.

This drink is high in readily-absorbed sugar and therefore should be limited to special occasions.
