Abstract

Experiments conducted at the Regional Sugarcane and Jaggery Research Station, Kolhapur during 1999–2000, 2000–2001 and 2001–2002 to study the clarification efficiency of some synthetic an herbal clarificant suitable for quality jaggery. The synthetic clarificant like Bhendi powder or SNi @ 2 ppm with herbal clarificant bhendi plant @ 2 kg/1000 lit wee found effective in improving NRS, Colour, Jaggery recovery and maximum removal of scum, showing better effect on quality of jaggery and also helped in maintaining higher NRS and better colour jaggery during storage than the control treatment. None of the other clarificant were found beneficial in keeping jaggery in good condition during storage.
