A Perfect Substitute of Sugar: Yom Jaggery

Sugar vs Jaggery

  • Jaggery and sugar, both are derived from sugarcane. During the process, initially, jaggery is derived, and then further processing of jaggery gives us sugar as a product.
  • There are various kinds of sugar available in the market, depending on the kind of refining treatment, and it's color.
  • Any kind of sugar, either brown, white, or any, is inferior to jaggery in terms of the value of nutrients it provides.
  • In most of the cases, people use white sugar, which provides you nothing but empty calories, i.e calories without any vitamins and minerals plus gifts you with many unsolicited health problems like obesity, diabetes, heart problems, and many more.
  • Jaggery is an unrefined natural sweetener. Unlike sugar, it is versatile in providing us the minerals and vitamins.
  • Now, there are also various kinds of jaggery available in the market, just like sugar.

So, how to identify which kind of jaggery is beneficial for health?

  • The brighter the color of jaggery is, the more dangerous it is to our health.
    • Because the brighter the color, it involves more processing, which involves the presence of sulphur. Which any human body does not appreciate.
  • The natural color of organic jaggery is close to the shade of a chocolate/copper color.
  • Do taste it. If it tastes even slightly salty, it may have a higher concentration of minerals salt. The salty taste also tells you about the freshness of the jaggery. The older it is, the saltier it will be.


Therefore, the preferred use of jaggery is organic/ natural, without much processing.

The traditional jaggery is unrefined and non-distilled. So, no chemicals are used in making it and all the nutrients like Magnesium, Iron, Calcium, etc are retained.
