The science behind Healthy, Delicious Til Ladoo:
“Til-Gud has special importance in this season. There are white, red and black types of Til, which act differently on body. Amongst three, red Til is most beneficial to health. In this season, skin goes dry and Til has a best quality to overcome dryness,” said Dr.
Bhojraj, adding, “Til has lipids which help us not only to maintain oil in the body but it is also a rich source of copper, manganese and calcium.”
In combination with Gud (Jaggery) the nutritional value is enhanced. Gud is full of iron, which helps in enhancing haemoglobin. Dr Bhojraj also highlighted, “Consumption of Til Ladoo prepares body for next dry season that is summer, as mentioned in Ayurveda. Hence, at least one Ladoo a day is beneficial for body.
