Ayurveda sugar (ground white rock sugar)

This ayurvedic white sugar (made from jaggery out of sugar cane) is made with great craftsmanship according to an age-old tradition. The sugar crystals are ground into a fine powder. Ground rock sugar made from jaggery is often used in Indian, Sri Lankan and Pakistani cuisine and is recommended, among other things, for sweetening drinks, desserts, herbal teas and herbal preparations.

However, ground white rock sugar from jaggery is more than just an ordinary sweetener: this sugar is not only suitable for the kitchen, but also for the home pharmacy! The importance of rock sugar is highly praised in the ancient Vedic scriptures, because this sugar allows many herbs and ayurvedic tea blends to fully develop their aroma and character. It serves as a means of transport (vahana) when using ayurvedic herbs. Ground white rock sugar, according to Ayurveda, helps to reduce the fire element 'Pitta' and harmonize the doshas. Sweet has a calming effect and can, for example, calm the nervous energy of Vata.

Sugar is usually seen as unhealthy these days. Refined sugars are added to many ready-to-eat products, which can contribute to many nowaday diseases. Yet sugar is not always bad for you. For example, rock sugar from jaggery still contains many important minerals and vitamins, and a good ayurvedic meal contains all six flavours (sweet, salty, sour, pungent, bitter and astringent). When used in the right amount and consistency, sweet can be very satisfying. For example, eating something sweet after a meal gives a feeling of satisfaction: a taste always has a mental effect on the body as well.
