Why Choose Organic Jaggery Powder (5 Health Benefits)

Used since ancient times in Ayurveda for its numerous health benefits, jaggery also known as gur (Hindi), bella (Kannada), vellam (Tamil/Malayalam) is a natural sweetener made from concentrated sugarcane juice. Sugarcane remains the major source of jaggery production In India, though there are some states where other sources like date palm are also used.

While sugarcane juice is the source for both sugar and jaggery, the similarity ends here, for jaggery is an unrefined sweetener while sugar is refined. This means that the production of jaggery follows a very simple and natural process without the addition of chemicals (as opposed to sugar which undergoes numerous chemical processes to gain that pristine white colour). It is this simplification of the production process which makes jaggery a wholesome product retaining all its inherent nutrients and health benefits.
