Palm jaggery powder is a natural sweetener made from the sap of palm trees. It is also known as palm sugar and has a distinct caramel-like flavor and brown color. The process of making palm jaggery involves extracting sap from the flowers of the palm tree and then boiling it until it thickens into a sweet, sticky syrup. This syrup is then allowed to cool and solidify before being ground into a fine powder.

Jaggery Powder vs Palm Sugar

Jaggery powder and palm jaggery powder are both natural sweeteners that are commonly used in Indian and Southeast Asian cuisines. However, the two are different in terms of their source, flavor, and nutritional profile.


Jaggery powder is made from concentrated sugarcane juice that is boiled until it solidifies and then ground into a powder. Palm sugar is derived from the sap of various palm trees such as coconut, date, and Palmyra.


Jaggery powder has a distinct caramel-like flavor and aroma, whereas palm jaggery powder has a more subtle, earthy flavor that is similar to brown sugar.

Nutritional Value

Jaggery powder is a rich source of iron, magnesium, potassium, and other minerals, and also contains some vitamins. It has a relatively high glycemic index and is not recommended for people with diabetes. Palm sugar is lower in glycemic index than jaggery and has moderate levels of potassium, iron, and zinc but does not contain any significant amounts of vitamins.

Overall, both jaggery powder and Karupatti powder  can be used as a substitute for white sugar in cooking and baking. However, their unique flavor profiles and nutritional values need to be considered in selecting which sweetener to use.
