Frequently asked questions
Q1. How do we know if the jaggery powder is pure?
A. There are two things that you should note in a jaggery powder to figure whether or not it is pure; the presence of crystals in it and its colour. The former indicates that the jaggery powder may have undergone other processes to enhance its natural sweetness. The latter, i.e. the colour of jaggery powder should ideally be creamish to dark brown (as it turns darker over a period of time). If you see any yellowish tint, that means there has been a chemical intervention. Also, natural jaggery powder may solidify at times due to weather changes. You can easily microwave it for a few seconds and it would soften enough to crumble. A chemical jaggery powder would not have solidifying tendencies.
Q2. Are there any side effects of consuming jaggery powder?
A. Even though consuming jaggery powder has many benefits, there are certain things to be kept in mind. Jaggery powder is a sugar replacement and a natural sweetener, but it does not mean it should be consumed in large quantities without any limit. It may lead to a drastic increase in weight and other issues that come with it, viz. Heart diseases, stroke, etc. Also, if you have any allergies or conditions, do check in with your doctor before including jaggery powder in your diet.
Q3. Can jaggery be eaten daily?
A. Experts suggest that jaggery powder, when ingested in limited quantities, can be taken daily. It is extremely beneficial in preventing constipation and aids in digestion. It can be taken after a meal for optimum benefits.
