Healthy alternative to white sugar
Free of chemicals
Nattusakkarai, jaggery powder is unrefined jaggery powder made from organically grown sugarcane. You can use it instead of white sugar in your tea, coffee, milk, chocolate drink, kheer, desserts, cakes, biscuits and for any kind of sweetening. It is healthier, natural, and has a lovely caramel flavour. Many of our customers who started using raw cane sugar, don’t want to go back to normal sugar or any other kind of sugar.
Bio Basics Jaggery Powder comes from two farms. One farm is near Sathyamangalam and the other, near Pondicherry. Both farms have third-party organic certifications. These farmers grow their own sugarcane and process only the sugar cane that is grown in their farm. They neither take their sugar cane outside for processing nor process anybody else’s sugarcane. This exclusiveness ensures consistency from batch to batch.
Fresh sugarcane is harvested every 2-3 months. It is crushed to extract sugar cane juice. The juice is boiled in large vats over a wood fire or bagasse fire. As part of the boiling process, the juice is purified, filtered and processed further until it reduces to a powdery form. The entire process requires hard work, patience and skill. The process is very fascinating to watch (video available on our Facebook page) and the end result is worth all the hard work - golden brown jaggery, free of chemicals from organically-grown sugarcane. Interestingly, our raw cane sugar can be used with milk unlike many other commercial varieties of raw cane sugar.
