Sugar, in and of itself, isn’t bad.
Sugar, made in a factory, refined until it loses all nutrition, and then hidden (using various fake names) at the back of the pack — is bad. Because that sugar leaves you craving for more, and you can’t even make a conscious choice since you don’t know it’s in there.
So, when it came to using a sugar in our Muesli range, we went to great lengths to find something that we could proudly use, and proudly declare upfront.
That something is Kakvi. The most-nutritious, and least processed form of sugarcane we could find. And here is the lowdown on what it is.
Note: No matter how nutritious it is, it’s still a sugar. So if you’re diabetic or completely off sugar, pls consult a doctor/nutritionist before trying this.
What is Kakvi?
Kakvi essentially translates to liquid jaggery. Solid Jaggery, or gur as we know it, is made from unrefined sugar. It is obtained by boiling raw, concentrated sugar cane juice. In itself, jaggery is far better a sweetener than commercial, refined sugar. And liquid jaggery goes one up on it!
