Dear Aysha, that as interesting question; yes, Jaggery has enormous health benefits which make it the ideal sweetener as compared to sugar. Just 10 grams of it contains 38 calories and has 9.8 gram of carbohydrates, 9.7 gram of sugar, 0.01 gram of protein, choline, betaine, Vitamin B12, B6, folate, calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, selenium, and manganese. It has no traces of any kind of fat so one can readily add it to their diet without worrying about excessive fat intake. The presence of potassium and sodium in jaggery helps maintain acid levels in the body. This, in turn, maintains normal blood pressure levels. So if someone suffers from high or low blood pressure, including it in their diet would be of great help. For people suffering from arthritis or any kind of pain in the joints, the consumption of jaggery can provide immense pain relief. When eaten with ginger, the effectiveness only improves. However, its sugar content is similar to that of white sugar, so patients suffering from diabetes should avoid over consumption. Hope this satisfies your query, if you have any other questions, please let us know.
