“Upma promised us with a healthy way to start the day. However, these claims are not only misleading but also false. According to the Statistics Bureau of HealthifyMe, 1 katori of Upma is mostly carbs. It barely contains any vitamins, minerals and only contains the minimum amount of proteins. The older folk are much more biased towards upma because that is what they grew up eating. But statistics clearly prove upma supporters wrong. Upma also promised to uplift the poor by providing them with a healthy way to start their day but clearly, we can see idly sambar already doing a better job in the South. Also in my highly valued personal opinion, upma just tastes bad. I think we should all collectively boycott upma.”- SohToasty

People shared ways this hate can be turned to love.
But the upma hate does not seem to simmer down.
Upma is not the only food item to receive so much flak. Poha has also been on the receiving end previously.

I hate bananas. The flavor. The texture. All of it. I eat it though. I hate every single bite. 🤮— ✨It’s Me✨ (@Just_Lovely_Me_) April 25, 2022
People definitely have very strong food choices.
