myDaily Meal - Nutrition In A Minute...
myDaily Meal is a perfectly engineered meal replacement shake. It is to save you from skipping meals and eating junk food. Usually we tend to rush for quick bites in our busy schedules. And most of the time it turns out to be junk food.
That is where myDaily Meal comes to play its useful role. The perfectly engineered meal replacement shake provides right amount of nutrients your body needs to function optimally. These nutrients include proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and fibers. It takes care of the proportions as required by your body in one meal. This provides exact nutrition to your body within one minute. The analysis study has been conducted by Four Fountains De-stress Spa team to arrive at this conclusion. The co-founders include Saurabh Gary, Anurag Kedia, and Sunil Rao.
I had a chance to try this product first hand, and I must say that it is as easy to relish and extract benefits from, as it is to prepare it.
“We believe that this is the real food-tech. While most of the players have been working around logistics and delivery, myDaily Meal is working on the real scientific aspect of food to make sure that you get perfect nutrition anytime, anywhere in few seconds. In our busy lives we end up either skipping a meal or eating junk food due to lack of time at least 10-15 times in a month. This positions myDaily as a perfect solution to this urban problem.” says Co-founder and Business Head Saurabh Garg. Saurabh is an IIT Bombay and IIM Ahmedabad Graduate with almost a decade of experience in healthcare with Four Fountains De-stress Spa.
Saurabh explains the beginning of his journey in a very interesting manner. He says, “myDaily started as a project to solve the problem of quick, convenient and healthy meal in our busy urban schedules. As entrepreneurs, we as well as people around us, were struggling to get the right nutrition in our tight schedules. And very quickly we realized that it is a problem faced by people well beyond the start-up world. Almost any working professional in today’s fast paced life has to face this problem multiple times in a week.”
There is a perfect science behind myDaily Meal. The whole mechanism is run with the help of a team of formulators. And this team works under the expert guidance of Dr. Ezhil Arasan, an ex-Dr. Reddy’s Research Scientist. Dr. Ezhil is also a consultant with various nutraceutical and nutrition companies, myDaily was formulated.
“The single guiding principle was that it should be ‘The Healthiest Meal Possible’ and should replace any meal completely giving entire nutrition as required by the body. It makes you full for the next 4-5 hours till your next meal.”, says Sunil Rao, Co-founder, who is an SPJIMR Alumnus. Sunil has almost a decade of experience in healthcare marketing.
“It took more than a year to get the product right. We started with looking at the entire 334 pages of Recommended Dietary Allowance by Indian Council of Medical Research and doing various analyses to get the nutrition requirements. Then came the lab samples and post tens of iterations and hundreds of tasting sessions we have a product that we are really proud of. Saurabh was very particular that the product should taste great while having perfect nutrition profile.”, says Dr. Ezhil Arasan, the scientific mind behind myDaily.
