Jaggery comes from either the sap of sugar cane or palm trees. But what makes Jaggery superior to regular sugar is the way it's made. Because it is processed without the use of chemicals, Jaggery retains many vital vitamins and minerals, such as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and potassium. Jaggery has a mineral content approximately 50 times greater than refined sugar and five times more than brown sugar. Just a teaspoon of Jaggery delivers approximately 3-5 mg of calcium, 3-5 mg phosphorous, 6 mg magnesium, and 45 mg of potassium. Jaggery is a sweetener that's becoming popular as a "healthy" replacement for sugar. It's often referred to as a "super food sweetener."
