How to select

Jaljeera powder can be bought whole or in the premixed and packaged ground form. You can easily make your own mix with dried herbs that you already have on-hand: combine roasted and ground jeera( cumin) with anchor, black salt and mint leaves .

Whole and dried spices are much more aromatic and flavoursome than their pre packaged alternatives. Whole spices to be added in the jaljeera powder should be compact and free of any blemishes.

While buying packaged jaljeera powder, check the expiry date and feel for lumpiness( sign of moisture inside the packet)

Jaljeera, a refreshing and natural drink, can help to fight intestinal gas and poor digestion, says an expert.
:
* Good for digestion: Jaljeera contains black salt, which is good for digestion. It helps in heartburns, relieves from intestinal gas and rehydrates the body.

* Prevents anaemia: Cumin content helps in preventing and treating anaemia as it is the excellent source of iron. It even improves immunity and keeps your body cool.

* Remedy for gastrointestinal upset: With ginger content, it treats any feeling of nausea and giddiness. It even helps in treatment of abdominal cramps, vomiting, menstrual cramps, arthritis, intestinal gas and several other disorders.

* Improves vitamin C deficiency: As it has dry mango or ‘amchoor’ powder, which is high in vitamin C, helps to improve immunity and keeps scurvy at bay.

* Burns calories: For calorie conscious people, it’s a care-free drink which they can have as it comes with very low calorie content.

* Keeps you hydrated: It is the cure for all health issues as it keeps the body hydrated and removes toxins from your body.

How to store

As a powder, flavour quickly deteriorates. Store in an airtight container, out of direct light.
