Sugar related

I am totally off sugar, i only eat jaggery because it's healthy right?

All comments


Jaggery has iron but it has all the calories of sugar, and it has a higher glycemic index than the refined sugar itself, it may be slightly healthier than sugar but that doesn't make it a healthy alternative

Hi Ankush. All forms of added sugar like refined sugar, jaggery & even honey have similar calorific value. Instead, natural sugar in the form of dates, raisins or even dry figs is a great addition ensuring you get healthy carbs in your diet !!
