With winter round the corner, make sure to have lots of jaggery nearby; heres why

It is easily described as chocolate of years but a whole lot better when it comes to health. Often tradition mandates that lots of jaggery is consumed throughout the winter season and is said to contribute to health of a person.

Well most health experts too agree that apart from being a wonderful digestive, the ‘gur’ as is known in India, is having excessive iron and vitamin C content and is also considered a traditional remedy for respiratory disorders and throat problems.

A healthier alternative to white refined sugar, jaggery can be used in many Indian desserts leaving a distinct flavour that we all love.

Jaggery has certain minerals which are beneficial for the body. These minerals are removed during the refining process to get sugar.

The minerals found in jaggery are phosphorus, iron, magnesium, zinc, selenium, potassium and is loaded with antioxidants, which helps to boost the immune system and helps the body fight against diseases. Apart from being an all-rounder, jaggery is known to be beneficial for throat problems too.

It reduces the irritation in the throat by creating a soothing layer on the inner lining of the throat and reduces dryness. It dilates the blood vessels in the area and improves blood flow, thus creating warmth in the respiratory tract. Jaggery is normally used with ginger to produce the said effect.

It is generally recommended to consume jaggery in winter only as it is known to produce heat in the body. According to Dietitian Sunita Chowdhary from BLK Super Speciality Hospital, “Jaggery is nothing but unrefined sugar and is made by boiling the sugar cane juice until it solidifies.

Jaggery is also made from date palm. So, jaggery has similar calories as sugar that is four calories per gram. To keep the body warm we need heat and the heat is produced by the calories from food. That is why jaggery is considered warm as it gives enough calories to keep the body warm.

It also helps to dilate blood vessels and produces warmth in the body. It is therefore, said to be beneficial to have jaggery in winters.
