Jaggery and sugar both are sweeteners made from sugarcane. But the manufacturing process of both is not the same. This makes them different. According to scientific research, sugar is not good for your health, you should probably intake pure organic jaggery instead of sugar.

The Process of Manufacturing
Sugar is manufactured through the extreme processing and refining of natural sugar cane, therefore it loses all its nutrients while preparation, and in contrast jaggery retains all its nutritional value. Jaggery contains more vitamins and minerals and has low sucrose content. Jaggery has all values which make it a Superfood.
Adding pure organic jaggery to one’s diet will add more nutrients than white sugar. Jaggery is convenient for your health as there will be a negligible chance of diabetes with regular use.
