Jaggery is a traditional Indian sweetener and a staple in Indian households. Jaggery sweets are a standard offering to God in various parts of India. It is healthier than refined white sugar, a product of raw and concentrated sugar cane juice.  Sugar contains the ominous empty calories dreaded by all. On the other hand, jaggery contains various plant-based minerals and nutrients like iron, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. Therefore, more and more people are consciously replacing white sugar with jaggery in their daily diet.
