Unrefined Jaggery Powder
from Jaipur Avenue - Seattle!

Jaggery (which you may know as Guda or Indian Gur sugar) is a whole, unrefined sugar that is as pure as any sugar from sugar cane can be. Compared to most sugars, especially refined white sugar, Jaggery has great properties.

Jaggery is made by boiling down raw sugar cane juice until it solidifies and is formed into a block. From there it takes on different forms for consumption.

According to Ayurveda, pure Jaggery powder has Ushna (hot) properties and eating some daily after meals improves your digestion and can prevent constipation.

Though Jaggery does not meet your daily iron needs, it is an excellent source of plant-based iron and can be a good daily step to ward off anemia.

The Jaggery with its antioxidant and mineral properties can work to clear the mucus in lungs and help the digestive system to function better by giving cytoprotection to your cells.

All these properties help with your immune system, a good thing to have in the winter when you are out playing in the snow, or at the beach, warding off the flu or whatever might be out there.

And for some it might even curb your desire to eat more cookies 

Jaggery has a rich aroma of molasses and sugarcane. Jaggery powder is like a wonderful perfume of sweetness.

At ChefShop we have a crushed form, that has little round globe-like pieces as well as finer granules. Eat the little globes with your fingertips to get a shot of adrenaline and a hit of flavor, even regularity.

If you like sweet like I do, you should consider adding some Jaggery to your life! Use as you would white sugar and eat it with abandon, just like you would like life to be. All out!

Sweet and happy, this is a sugar I have to have in my personal essential pantry!

An excellent alternative to sugar
I first became familiar with jaggery during one of my several visits to India. On the sub-continent jaggery is frequently used in place of refined sugar in both sweet and savory dishes and is considered to have health benefits. That seems reasonable, because jaggery is a "non-centrifugal" sugar derivative, meaning the molasses component of sugar cane, which contains a number of nutrients, is not spun out during the manufacturing process - as would be case in producing refined sugar. I have for many years used jaggery in place of sugar in my morning chai, on cereals such as oatmeal, and in baking. I find Jaipur Avenue's product to be an excellent jaggery in every respect. The taste is sweet and flavorful, more nuanced than sugar or many other sweeteners. The color is a light golden brown, which in India is preferred over darker brown varieties. I highly recommend this product.
