Uses of palm sugar candy

Palm sugar candy/panangarkandu has various culinary and medicinal uses in traditional practices. Here are some of the different uses of Panangarkandu:

One of the primary uses of Palm Sugar Candy is as a natural sweetener. It can be used as a direct replacement for refined sugar in various recipes, including sweets, desserts, and beverages.

Panangarkandu is commonly used in the preparation of traditional South Indian sweets like payasam (kheer), kesari (semolina pudding), and halwa. Its rich caramel-like flavor adds a unique taste to these dishes.

Panangarkandu is often used to sweeten beverages like Panakam, a traditional South Indian drink made with jaggery, water, lemon juice, and spices, which is especially popular during festivals.

Palm jaggery can be melted and used to prepare delicious and natural sweet sauces and dressings for salads, marinades, and other savory dishes.

Palm jaggery can be dissolved in hot water to make soothing and naturally sweet herbal teas, which can be infused with spices like ginger, cardamom, and cinnamon for added flavor.

In traditional Ayurvedic medicine, Panangarkandu is believed to have various medicinal properties. It is used in herbal formulations and remedies to treat respiratory ailments and throat problems and as a general tonic. It is sometimes used as a base for homemade cough syrups due to its reputed effectiveness in soothing coughs and sore throats. Boiled milk added with a pinch or turmeric and a pinch of pepper powder sweetened with palm sugar candy is an effective cure for consistent cough. 

In some traditional beauty practices, Panangarkandu is used as an ingredient in homemade face masks and scrubs due to its natural exfoliating and moisturizing properties.

Benefits of palm sugar candy

Palm sugar candy contains essential minerals like iron, calcium, potassium, and magnesium, along with vitamins and antioxidants.  It also contains small amounts of vitamins such as vitamin C and B-complex vitamins, making it a more nutritious alternative to regular sugar. 

Additionally, it has a lower glycemic index compared to white sugar, which means it does not spike blood sugar levels as rapidly. This makes it a better option for people with diabetes or those trying to manage their blood sugar levels.

Palm sugar candy contains antioxidants, such as polyphenols, which can help neutralize harmful free radicals in the body and support overall health.
