“Teel-Gud has special importance in this season. There are white, red and black types of Teel, which act differently on body. Amongst three, red Teel is most beneficial to health. In this season, skin goes dry and Teel has a best quality to overcome dryness,” said Dr. Bhojraj, adding, “Teel 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 Teel Laddu prepares body for next dry season that is summer, as mentioned in Ayurveda. Hence, at least one Laddu a day is beneficial for body. Yes, diabetes patients have to take care but for health benefits, restricted consumption should be followed.”
Kavita Gupta, a famous dietitian of the city also mentions the importance of Teel. “As Teel is rich source of protein, calcium and fibres, it helps body to enhance its metabolism.” She further added, “Nowadays diet conscious youngsters avoid enjoying Teel Laddu. But actually it helps in curing problems related to bones and skin. It is the best tonic for a glowing skin and ravishing hair. Anything overdone will cause the problem, hence understanding the health benefits of Teel Laddu one should enjoy the flavour of festive season.”
In our country every festival has its own flavour, which we enjoy in the form of various delicacies. The platter of Teel Laddu must have been ready by now, so enjoy the delicious treat with the famous shout of the season Ohhh Kaattt...
