1. Jaggery balls

2. Jaggery powder

Jaggery is a much more nourishing food than white sugar. Unlike white sugar, which is 99% carbohydrates and nothing else, a piece of jaggery comprises, besides calories in the form of sucrose, several other nutrients, like protein, minerals, calcium, phosphorus, iron, carotene, thiamine, riboflavin and niacin.
Chemicals used in the market jaggery: Large-scale jaggery production in the market uses huge quantities of sodium hydrosulphite for cleaning. Bleaching agents including oxalic acid, superphosphate and detergents are used to make the jaggery look light in colour. Benzene is used to kill enzyme action in the jaggery, in order to increase its shelf life. Benzene is a known carcinogen. Oxalic acid is corrosive to tissue. When ingested, oxalic acid removes calcium from the blood in the form of calcium oxalate, which then obstructs the kidney tubules, causing kidney damage.

Organic Jaggery: We procure our jaggery (balls and powder) from famer associations who make it in smaller scale following the traditional style. Not only is the sugarcane cultivated without the use of synthetic chemical fertilizers and pesticides, but no chemicals are used in the process of making it either. If you replace your white sugar in your morning drinks with some organic powdered jaggery, you will get your vitamins and minerals too, instead of having them removed!
