Why is it healthy?
Jaggery, being a hearty Sugar, without doubt is rich in the vitally important mineral Salt: 2.8 grams per 100 grams, that is to say 28 grams per kilogram, while only 300 milligrams per kilogram is found in refined Sugar.
Magnesium strengthens the nervous system & potassium is vital to conserve the acid balance in the cells and combats acids and acetone. Jaggery is very rich in iron, which, a composite of hemoglobin prevents anemia.
Uses of Jaggery
Jaggery is widely used in the Indian cooking including those of the South Indian and Gujarati cuisines. The various South Indian foods like rasam, dal and sambar are also prepared with the addition of jaggery. In addition to its consumption in the raw form, it is used in the traditional dishes where it lends a touch of sweetness to the sourness and spiciness of the preparations. Further, it is used in the preparation of alcoholic beverages and to make items like candy, toffees, jaggery cakes and other similar sweet preparations. Its regular usage is advocated in the daily diet as it is a healthy and unrefined form of Sugar. Interestingly, jaggery is used for the coating of insides of a tandoor oven to enable better flavor of dishes.

I would recommend that the dissolved jiggery is strained with muslin before use as there are tiny stones that come from the inherent processing. will buy again.01/10/2016, By JemCaramelly taste, Yumo
