This sugar substitute is climbing the popularity ladder among health enthusiasts. More and more people are realizing that jaggery has a far superior nutritional profile than sugar. What makes this switch even easier is the fact that jaggery has a unique aromatic quality while sugar imparts no distinct fragrance. But there is one aspect in which both jaggery and sugar are quite similar- that is, both are heavily chemically processed. The bright yellow jaggery that looks so pleasing to the eyes gains that color only after it has been treated with a solution of sodium-hydro sulphite or ‘hydros’. These mainstream versions are also treated with a variety of viscosity reducers and bleaching agents. All of this makes your local jaggery quite harmful. But there is another kind of jaggery available; one that is sourced directly from organic farmers and then processed minimally. Presenting, Green Canteen’s Jaggery. It is made using only hygienically produced sugarcane juice which is then simply strained to remove impurities. The juice concentrate is then boiled until most of the water in the juice evaporates leaving behind a semi-crystalline product. This makes either liquid or solid ball-like jaggery variants. What makes untreated and preservative free jaggery so nutritious is the high content of potassium and magnesium. While potassium is an important mineral used in muscle building and a maintaining a healthy heart, magnesium is immunity boosting functions. Apart from this, jaggery is also known to have detoxifying properties. So, now you know why we say replacing sugar with jaggery is one of the most important health decision you’ll take.
