How to make Homemade Sugar Cane Juice

Sugar cane is known to provide energy and glucose to our body and give us strength. Sugarcane juice is extracted from the cane by pressing it through iron rollers or through a mixie at home. The syrup-like juice is highly nutritious and refreshing, it contains about 15 % natural sugar that is rich in organic salts and vitamins. The juice can also be used for drinking or sweetening. Ginger, lemon or lime can be added to improve its flavour. Even with its sugar content and sweetness, it is also good for diabetic patients. It has natural sugar which has a low glycemic index that prevents a steep rise in blood glucose levels in diabetics, so it can act as a substitute for carbonated drinks. However, people with Type-2 diabetes should consume it in moderation and, after, consult with their doctors.
