Jaggery, or gur, is made from unrefined sugar, and is obtained by boiling raw, concentrated sugar cane juice. Liquid jaggery is a great alternative to refined sugar and contains several minerals, vitamins and antioxidants, boosting the immune and digestive system. It has detoxifying properties, flushing out toxins and cleansing the liver. Its natural sweetness provides energy over an extended period of time. Jaggery is a great substitute for sugar and is used to prepare many traditional Indian sweets.
