In Ayurveda, Sharkara is the most highly regarded of all types of sugar. It is made from sugar cane and during production, impurities are separated out through a slow process of re-crystallization. Finally the crystals are reduced into small pieces and are ground very fine.
Ayurvedic ancient texts like Charak describe its balancing effect in the body. The classical texts speak of a reduction in the Ayurvedic fire element Pitta and a balancing of the other doshas. The Ayurvedic candy sugar that we offer is prepared specially according to traditional procedures.
