    Can diabetic patients consume organic jaggery?

    Dear Aysha, that’s a very interesting question about jaggery; whether it’s organic or conventional; Jaggery is less refined when compared to sugar and retains a lot of essential nutrients such as potassium, iron and calcium. But that doesn’t mean a person with high sugar level can eat jaggery. Its brown color may seem healthy but for a diabetic patient, it is not a healthy choice as it has a high Glycemic index value (84). Jaggery does help in fighting oxidative stress and maintains blood pressure because of its iron content, but if you’re a diabetic, jaggery should be out of your food limits. I hope you are satisfied with the above response. It would be my pleasure to know how more we can assist you.
