    Made from Natural Palm Sugar

    How is It Made?

    Jaggery is made using traditional methods of pressing and distilling palm or cane juice. This is a 3-step process:

     

    1. Extraction: The canes or palms are pressed to extract the sweet juice or sap.
    2. Clarification: The juice is allowed to stand in large containers so that any sediment settles to the bottom. It is then strained to produce a clear liquid.
    3. Concentration: The juice is placed in a very large, flat-bottomed pan and boiled.

     

    During this process, the jaggery is stirred and the impurities are skimmed off the top until only a yellow, dough-like paste remains. This 'dough' is then transferred to molds or containers where it cools into jaggery, which is then ground to produce this granulated powder.

    Jaggery vs Refined Sugar

    Jaggery contains more nutrients than refined sugar because of its molasses content. It is often known as a superfood sugar! Molasses is a nutritious by-product of the sugar making process, which is usually removed when making refined sugar. In Jaggery though, it is kept.

    Including the molasses adds a small amount of micronutrients to the final product.

    We recommend consuming this product in moderation.

    What is it Used For?

    In India, Jaggery is often mixed with foods like coconuts, peanuts and condensed milk to make traditional desserts and candies.

    These include jaggery cake and chakkara pongal, a dessert made from rice and milk.

    It is also used to make traditional alcoholic drinks, such as palm wine, and for non-food purposes like dying fabric.

    In the Western world, this sweetener is often used as a sugar substitute in baking. It can also be used to sweeten drinks like tea and coffee.
