Myth: Rock Sugar Is Healthier Than Regular Sugar

Myth: Rock sugar is healthier than Regular sugar

I have seen that mothers replaces regular sugar with

rock sugar especially when they are using it for their kids. Thinking that

it is healthier and less processed, and

can use it as much as they want. But

as far as processing is concerned, both-

rock sugar and regular sugar are formed from

the same saturated sugar solutions. Though

there is no major difference between their process,

the rock sugar is more concentrated than

your regular sugar. And thus,

have more calories than regular sugar. Nutrition value

is also same for both the sugarsa big zero!

So, taking calorie count and processing into account

Truth: Rock sugar is not healthier than

regular sugar. Both are the same.

So you should stop replacing your regular sugar with rock sugar.

Healthier alternative of both sugars are:

  • Organic jaggery
  • Stevia
  • Dates
  • Fig
  • Banana
  • Chickoo
  • Raisins (Dried Black grapes)

So according to your recipe you can use above option for your

Desserts, juices, pudding etc.

Always remember you should have everything in balanced form.
