We searched online whether UNESCO declared idli as the healthiest breakfast item in the whole world. We did not find any such official statement.
Vishvas News spoke to Roni Amelan, English Editor, UNESCO. She said: Indeed this is not correct. UNESCO gives no such rankings. Thank you for taking the trouble to check the facts and bringing this to our notice.
