Rs. 90.00
SKU

Product Weight- 1 Kg

100% pure jaggery

Jaggery/Gur/Khandsari is usually made manually in rural areas from sugarcane juice and should ideally be dark in colour. The whiter it is the more caustic soda, sodium bicarbonate, zinc formaldehyde sulphoxylate (harmful – used by the textile industry), sodium hydrophosphide (also harmful) or even cheap detergent is added, but if calcium carbonate (shell/lime origin) is used, it also adds weight. Vegetable clarifiers are stem and root of green deola and bhindi, green bark of phalsa and semul trees, dry bark of sukhlai plant, castor seed, ground nut and soy bean. A cup of such mucilaginous vegetables are added to 100 cups of boiling sugar cane juice so the impurities rise to the top and can be skimmed off. Unfortunately, jaggery is some times adulterated with expired confectionery and chocolates.
