Most Indians start their day with a cup of refreshing Tea in the morning; sugar is most widely used to sweeten the drink. While the usage of sugar is still persistent, health conscious people are turning to Jaggery to sweeten their daily cup.
In Kerala it is very common to eat Jaggery after the sip of stable black tea. Jaggery provides strength to the day long work and prevents turning anemic.
Palm Jaggery proves to be more benefic than Jaggery since it prevents cold and more nutritious.
Our ancestors were well aware of the health benefits associated with the Jaggery and used it as sweetener for tea and preparing sweet meats during festivals. Neglecting our traditions and haphazardly embracing western life style has affected the well being of present generation.
