Organic Jaggery Powder: The Healthy Alternative to Sugar

If you’re looking for a healthy alternative to ordinary sugar for sweetening, cooking and baking, you are going to love our naturally delicious, mineral-rich, certified organic jaggery. It’s made from the extracted juice of organically grown sugarcane, produced to form a gorgeous, rich, healthy sweetener that has been used in traditional diets in Pakistan, Sri Lanka, India and Bangladesh for centuries. Often called “gur” in Pakistan, jaggery is used in sweet and savory dishes as well as beverages. Because it is pressed from organic sugarcane, it retains natural vitamins and minerals not found in table sugar, such as potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, and calcium. Even the ancient healing practice of Ayurveda recognizes the importance of jaggery for promoting good health. Here are some tips for cooking with jaggery:
  • Use equal amounts or a little less jaggery in place of sugar in a recipe. Jaggery is rich - both in flavor and nutrition, so a little bit can go a long way.
  • If you keep jaggery in the refrigerator, be sure to bring it to room temperature before using in a recipe.
  • Mash with fingers or grate as much as you need using a regular cheese grater. Remember, for best results, use room temperature jaggery.
  • Make “jaggery syrup” to use in recipes calling for liquid sweeteners such as honey, maple syrup, molasses, corn syrup, etc. For every tablespoon of jaggery, use one teaspoon of water. Blend or whisk well to make syrup. Because jaggery syrup is naturally sweet and rich, you can use less in your recipes. For example, if a recipe calls for ½ cup honey, try 1/3 cup jaggery syrup.
  Differences between organic jaggery and refined sugar:
  • Refined sugar is processed using chemicals to clarify the cane sugar juice syrup, whereas organic jaggery is produced by simply boiling this syrup without the use of harsh chemicals.
  • Refined sugar is solid and crystalline, whereas organic jaggery is soft and amorphous.
