Abstract

A review on the chemical composition of neera (unfermented sweet juice from the inflorescence of fan palm, date palm, sago palm or coconut palm) and gur (or jaggery), a conversion of product of neera. Sugar-yielding palm trees in India are mostly date (Phoenix sylvestris), palmyra (Borassus flabellifer) and sago (Caryota urens). Tables show chemical composition, and content of vitamin B12, thiamine, nicotinic acid, ascorbic acid, minerals, reducing and non-reducing sugars, and amino acids of neera, and gur prepared from cane sugar, and palm (date, sago, coconut and palmyra). Nutritional studies with children and rats gave good results. Neera is said to be of good nutritive value and could be used as a fresh (cheap) drink to meet vitamin and mineral requirements of those on a poor cereal diet. Conversion of neera to gur or sugar would be more costly.
