Sug­ar­cane juice de­mand on rise

Pakistan Observer - - TWIN CITIES -

IS­LAM­ABAD—The de­mand of sug­ar­cane juice has wit­nessed in­crease in twin cities of Rawalpindi and Is­lam­abad, due to in­creas­ing heat.

Sug­ar­cane juice is good source of glu­cose which as we know, helps to re-hy­drate the hu­man body and gives it a boost of en­ergy. So in­stead of your ar­ti­fi­cial en­ergy drink, the next time you feel fa­tigued or de­hy­drated, con­sider drink­ing a glass of cane juice.

Ac­cord­ing to med­i­cal ex­perts, the sug­ar­cane juice boosts pro­tein lev­els in the body, it helps in main­tain­ing the health of the kid­ney. Taken in a di­luted form, with lime juice and co­conut water, sugar cane juice helps in re­duc­ing the burn­ing sen­sa­tion which is com­monly as­so­ci­ated with uri­nary tract in­fec­tions, kid­ney stones and pro­stati­tis.

Sug­ar­cane juice also acts a good di­ges­tive aid due to the pres­ence of po­tas­sium. With the in­creas­ing profit for ven­dors, it is a ma­jor con­cern for cus­tomers that the uten­sils used for pre­par­ing and serv­ing these drinks are not hy­gienic.

“When I got free from uni­ver­sity I buy a glass of sug­ar­cane juice at price 30, I feel fresh and it quenches my thirst,” said As­jad Shah.

Ahmed Ali, a ven­dor at Sun­day bazaar said “Num­ber of peo­ple come to my shop to buy a glass of juice af­ter they got tired off shop­ping it helps to main­tain their sugar level in the body.” —APP
