Hooves and muzzle are black or brown in colour with a prominent hump; udder is small in size, tucked up with the body. These cows are well adapted to the hilly terrain and climatic conditions and comparatively more resistant to diseases. Badri cow is listed under accession no INDIA_CATTLE_2400_BADRI_03040 as Indian breed by ICAR- National Bureau of Animal Genetic Resources. Mostly fed grass, milk of these cows is thick and yellow in color. Unlike other Indian breeds, they give only 1 to 3 litres of milk. As per a research study conducted by Uttarakhand State Council for Science & Technology & IIT Roorkee, milk of Badi cow contains almost 90% A2 beta-casein proteins- one of the highest in any indigenous varieties. Casein is the name for a family of related phosphoproteins (αS1, αS2, β, κ). These proteins are commonly found in mammalian milk and make up 80% of the proteins in cow's milk. Of 12 beta casein found in cow's milk, A1 and A2 forms the majority of the content. A1 and A2 are processed differently by digestive enzymes. Scientists in New Zealand, in one research, found correlations between the prevalence of milk with A1 beta-casein proteins and various chronic diseases.

Boka Saul - Magic Rice from Assam Rs. 250.00
This food grain (whose name translates to ‘rice that is soft’) has gained a reputation as a “magic” rice as it need not be cooked the conventional way. All one needs to do is soak the grains in some warm water for about 30 minutes (or in cold water for one hour) and it’s done! Boka saul (oryza sativa) is a paddy variety grown in parts of lower Assam. Back in the 17th century, it was the fuel for the Ahom soliders fighting the Mughal army. Today, it’s fuel for the hundreds of farmers who toil in the fields of Assam everyday, for whom it’s become a staple. The urban populace hasn’t really caught on yet. “But they should. Boka saul requires zero fuel. The rice does not need to be cooked!” says Hemanta Baishya, founder-Member of Lotus Progressive Centre, one of the two organisations who applied for the patent in 2016. “Just soak the rice in (cold) water for one hour, and it swells up like a charm. Mix it with curd, jaggery and banana, and it’s ready to eat. It will sort you for the whole day,” says Baishya, adding that the higher grade boka saul swells up in fifteen minutes flat. While the “zero-fuel requirement” rates high on its unique quotient, boka saul is highly nutritious. It has 10.73 per cent fibre content and 6.8 per cent protein, according to a study by the Guwahati University’s Biotechnology department. “It also cools down the body and is ‘default organic’. Even if you aid it with chemical fertilisers, it just will not respond — the crop will collapse!” says Baishya. Over the last four years, the scientific tests and analyses for boka saul was done in consultation with Assam Agricultural University, Indian Council of Agricultural Research, Assam Science Technology and Environment Council and Guwahati University’s Biotechnology Department. According to Kalita, the rice can work well as a “disaster management” food as well as supplement for soldiers in high-altitude frontier areas. “During floods, this is a great ‘emergency food’ for obvious reasons.
