Palm Jaggery is made from concentrated Palm juice or Padani as locally known in Tamil Nadu and Srilanka. The Palm Juice is collected and boiled for more than two hours continuously while constantly stirred to make them not stick to the vessel. This concentrated syrup is then cooled naturally in molds, often made out of coconut shells.
Palm Jaggery is considered as a healthy alternative to regular sugar and other sweeteners. It has high content of Iron, Magnesium, Calcium and Potassium. Palm Jaggery is made in a completely natural process which makes it free of other added chemicals and preservatives. Palm Jaggery need to be stored in freezer for longer periods of time as they tend to spoil quicker than normal jaggery or sugar.
