Jaggery popularly known as gur in India is supposedly a better alternative for white sugar. It is made by boiling the raw sugar cane juice, and for that matter, it is known to be less refined than that of the white sugar. It is also considered healthier than refined white sugar. It is commonly produced in Brazil, India, Australia, Thailand, Germany, etc. Whereas, in India, the district of Kushinagar in Uttar Pradesh has the largest unit for the manufacturing of gur, followed by Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, and Karnataka.
Now if you highly increase the intake of jaggery, you might get subject to overweight. Moreover, if not consuming them in moderation, then it might again lead to an increase in the blood sugar level. It can also lead to intestinal worm infection if the intake continues for a long period.(3)
