ORGANIC JAGGERY LUMP
Jaggery is an excellent and naturally healthy sweetener. Made from the sap of plants (usually some types of palm or sugarcane) that contain a good quantity of sucrose, it is golden brown in colour and has a distinct taste unlike the plain sweetness of sugar. It can be stored in the form of blocks or powder, which can then be mixed into the dish being prepared. Jaggery can also be used to make sweets.
health benefits of jaggery powder:
Healthy source of carbohydrates
Jaggery is a storehouse of carbohydrates, which the body needs to produce energy. However, unlike sugar, which has a simple form that easily breaks down to give instant energy, jaggery has a more complex form of carbohydrate. This slows down the release of energy and spreads it over a longer period of time. Thus, damage to the internal organs due to a sudden rise in energy levels can be avoided.
Boon to the digestive system
Rich in fibre, jaggery makes the bowel movements easier, thereby relieving constipation. It also activates digestive enzymes and facilitates digestive functions, reducing pressure on the intestines.
Storehouse of minerals
Jaggery, especially traditionally or organically made jaggery, is rich in minerals like iron, magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus. Since it comes directly from sugar cane juice which is not put through refinement or bleaching, it retains all the original minerals.
Purifier and cleanser
Jaggery purifies the blood and cleanses the respiratory tract, the lungs, and also the digestive tract. By eliminating toxins from the body, jaggery also serves as a means to improve general immunity.
Rich in antioxidants
Selenium, magnesium, and some vitamins with antioxidant properties are present in jaggery. This enables jaggery to protect the body from damage done by free radicals, keeping some kinds of cancer at bay as well as resisting skin damage.
