Yesterday I came to know about Palm candy (taal mishri in hindi and Panakarkandu in Tamil)... my MIL said they used to give Palm candy to children instead of sugar... I thought of searching about it... and finally thought I should share this as this is really a nice substitute for sugar.

Palm Candy is a nutrient rich, Low Glycemic Crystalline sweetener; it is completely natural.

It has a number of minerals, vitamins, calcium, iron& phyto nutrients including zinc and potassium.

The sugar content in palm sugar is well balanced. It is a good source of Vitamin B1, B2, B3, B6 and B12. It being rich in iron helps to treat anemia. Palm sugar being low in the GI helps to cure PCOS problem in women. Palm sugar is “thermogenic” that it takes more energy for the body to burn it. There by it increases metabolism.

Palm candy with water quenches thirst. Palm candy with milk relieves urinary trouble, urinary tract infection and heat. Palm candy in warm milk with pepper and turmeric powder acts as a goody remedy for sore throat and ear pain.

It’s a good natural substitute for Refined Sugar...

stay healthy stay happy... 😊

yes sonam patel am using it from my pregnancy too.. it will help to reduce iron deficiency while pregnancy.. normally I wud prefer palm sugar, palm jaggery rather than sugar fa it's iron rich quality.. it's very useful bring it here... previous generations used so many natural healthy foods..they prefer  medicine in the form of food ... nowadays the scenario changes to medicine itself food..

Ashika Imthiyaz old people are really strong as they ate healthy.. and their life span was also a expanded one.. and now  a days nothing is pure... and even we lack the knowledge of simple things which we can implement in our life...
