Description

Palm jaggery comes from the palm plant which takes about 15 years to bear fruit. Traditionally every part of this tree is used for the production of some type of item. The leaves are used for roofing on houses, fibers are used for weaving baskets and wood of the dead trees are used as building blocks. The palm jaggery is one of three unique types of palm trees (the others being coconut and date palm) that have been known to produce a sweet tasting sap. This sweet sap is traditionally harvested 2 times daily between the months of March and December. Collecting this sap is a labor of love and has to be done by hand to not destroy these trees. Therefore this process is slow and time-consuming.

Advantages of palm jaggery :

  • Possible nourishing source of minerals
  • Natural source of iron
  • Low glycemic food
  • May support healthy digestion
  • Maybe a safe food for diabetics
  • Glycemic index (GI) rating: 38 = low (honey is 55 and table sugar is 68)
  • A possible source of energy

This product is 100% natural and minimally processed. Taste, smell, texture, and color may vary from batch to batch. Due to its nature, this powder tends to clump.

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that in comparison to other forms of sugar, it is no doubt a better alternative, just as honey is. But, that definitely doesn’t mean that one should over indulge, using heaps of it in beverages, cereals and desserts.
