Jaggery-(Pure Gur)-(Without Chemicals)
Jaggery or gur is made from unrefined sugar, and is obtained by boiling raw, concentrated sugar cane juice till it solidifies. It has certain benefits:
- It prevents constipation by aiding digestion.
- It activates the digestive enzymes in our body.
- It helps in proper digestion of food.
- Eating a piece of jaggery daily can help women combat PMS symptoms including mood swings, menstrual cramps and abdominal pain.
It is, however, suggested to consume jaggery in moderation, as it is slightly higher in calories, containing up to 4 kcal/gram. People who are diabetic or are following a weight loss diet should monitor their consumption of jaggery, as it can lead to weight gain and fluctuations in blood-sugar levels.
