Jaggery is a particular type of sugar popular in India derived from sugarcane juice. A practice was executed to estimate jaggery quality by packaging jaggery in different material and packaging conditions. The results exhibited that the most suitable packaging material for storing jaggery lessening sugar content, moisture content, porosity, and microbial load in jaggery was observed to be very minimum in jaggery packaged under vacuum in three-layer material
There is not much variation in the packaging material of jaggery. Glass jars, LDPE (Low-Density Polythene) packets, and PET (Poly-Ethylene Terephthalate) jars are majorly used for the packaging of the jaggery. But using these types of material is not enough to prevent jaggery from mold growth. We need to take precautions to give it an anaerobic environment. Oxygen absorbers can vanish all our worries.
