Young Indian Entrepreneurs Launch Snack Crafted From Water Lily Seeds

February 1, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
With the help of a London, Ont.-based business incubator, two kinesiology students at Canada’s Western University have launched Arise N’ Go, which offers a popped water lily seeds snack. The product was inspired by Sucheta Khuranan’s family history in India and a mother trying to look out for her daughter. The water lily seeds are roasted, not cooked in oil, and are light and crunchy like popcorn; but have less fat, fewer calories and 50 percent more protein than popcorn. With three flavor combinations, they are sold in 11 stores and two markets in the London area. They are also available online. The two student entrepreneurs say they are already making plans for further expansion.
