6 Reasons to Add Organic Jaggery to your Diet

by Truefarm Foods 31 Aug 2023

Rich in vitamins and minerals, jaggery is one of the healthiest sugar substitutes. Give a quick read to the blog and know why you need to incorporate organic jaggery into your diet.   

Winning the crown of being the healthiest sugar substitute in the world, gur or jaggery is the best way to satiate your sweet cravings. Also, known as non-centrifugal cane sugar, it is an unrefined natural sugar consumed mainly in Asia, parts of America and Africa. Due to its molasses content, jaggery tastes better, richer and is more nutritious than regular refined white sugar. 

The ‘healthy sugar substitute’ is made from both sugarcane and palm. 70% of the world’s jaggery is produced alone in India. Gur has been used in Ayurvedic medicines by the practitioners for more than 3000 years.

How is it made? 

Our organic production of jaggery involves the traditional methods of pressing and distilling palm and cane juice. 

  • Extraction: The organic sweet juice or sap is extracted from the canes and palms. 
  • Clarification:  The juice is allowed to stand in large containers. The sediments settle to the bottom and the liquid is strained and the clear liquid is obtained. 
  • Concentration: The clear juice is then poured in a large, flat-bottomed pan and boiled.

Under the boiling process, the impurities are skimmed off the top, as it is continuously stirred, leaving a yellow syrup behind. 

The Benefits of Jaggery

Adding a tablespoon of jaggery powder to tea, coffee or milk can provide you with multiple essential nutrients such as calcium, iron etc. Not only this, but it also has several other health benefits. Take a quick tour.

  1. Good Source of Energy 

The normal white sugar is a simple carbohydrate and instantly gets dissolved in the bloodstream, providing instant energy to the body. Whereas, jaggery is a complex carbohydrate, which gets absorbed by the blood, slowly and keeps the body energized for a longer period. 

Our Organic Jaggery is naturally low in the Glycemic Index. The blood sugar level is not raised immediately and is under control. 

  1. Improves Digestion

As jaggery is a good source of sucrose, it is always advised by our elders to have it post-meals. 

It triggers the digestive enzyme and operates like acetic acid in the stomach. Accordingly, the process of digestion accelerates. It also stimulates bowel movements, hence, preventing constipation. 

  1. Prevents Anaemia

Due to its rich iron and folate content, jaggery maintains a normal level of red blood cells, hence, preventing anaemia. Jaggery balances the iron content as compared to white sugar. 

  1. Improves Immune Function

Jaggery is often used as tonics to treat ailments at our homes. The minerals and antioxidants such as zinc and selenium in jaggery support the immune system. 

Our Organic Jaggery helps prevent free-radical damage and also magnifies resistance against infections. 

  1. Detoxes Liver

Jaggery acts as a natural body cleanser, hence, the work of the liver is smoothened. Jaggery helps the liver to flush out the harmful toxins from the body, leaving it detoxified. Thus, consuming jaggery, once a day can ease out the functioning of your liver. 

  1. Purifies Blood

Jaggery is known for its blood purifying ability. Regular consumption of jaggery cleanses the blood and promotes a healthier body. Thus, it can be helpful in curing acne and pimples.

Serving you pure Sweetness!

Now that you know how beneficial jaggery is for you, do not stop yourself from munching on those yummy gur ladoos or adding a dash of our Organic jaggery powder to your tea / coffee.

Until next time, stay safe, eat healthy and Go Organic!
