The manufacture of sugar from sugarcane juice is a process that involves a Cocktail of Chemicals. Sulphur dioxide, lime, phosphoric acid, formic acid, bleaching agents and viscosity reducers are just some of these. Moreover, the processing of sugar is carried on in mild steel equipment, which leads to a high dosage of Nickel in the mother liquor.
Jaggery (Panela) is a "natural" sweetener made by the concentration of sugarcane juice WITHOUT the use of any chemicals / synthetic additives or preservatives. It contains an enormous wealth of minerals / protein / vitamins. More importantly, Jaggery (Panela) has great Nutritive and Medicinal Value. It has the reputation of being a medicinal sugar and is prescribed for use in the Ayurvedic system of medicine. In an experiment, Jaggery (Panela)-treated rats showed enhanced translocation of coal particles from lungs to tracheobronchial lymph nodes. It is no wonder that Jaggery (Panela) is regularly consumed by thousands of industrial workers / traffic policemen who are exposed to higher levels of pollution. It helps them breathe easier and counter pollution naturally. We, therefore, recommend the replacement (at least partially if not completely) of sugar in your diet with Jaggery (Panela).
