Jaggery is a natural sweetener that’s also a healthier alternative to refined white sugar. It is prepared from the sap or the juice of sugarcane that contains a considerable amount of sucrose or sugar. Traditional Jaggery is unrefined and rich in magnesium, iron, calcium, and phosphorus. If you’re looking for a healthy alternative to ordinary sugar for sweetening, cooking and baking, you are going to love our naturally delicious, mineral-rich, certified organic jaggery. It is a rich, healthy sweetener that has been used in traditional diets in India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh for centuries.
Rich brown or golden in colour, Jaggery tastes like something between a rich molasses and caramel toffee. It is essentially made in South and Southeast Asia, North Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean Islands.
Important benefits of Jaggery include its ability to cleanse your body, act as a digestive agent, sweeten your food in a healthy manner, and provide good amounts of minerals.
It is much more complex than refined sugar, and therefore does not increase the sugar level in the blood very quickly. It provides energy slowly, over a longer period. Although diabetics should avoid Jaggery, it is definitely better than using sugar.
