Health Benefits of Homemade Jams

Jam has many of the health benefits of fruit, most notably, heart-healthy, cancer-fighting antioxidant power. It can help reduce the risk of developing various cancers, particularly mouth, stomach, and colon-rectum cancer.

  1. Unlike margarine, butter, cheese, and Nutella, jams don’t add to the cholesterol and fat content of your body. Healthy jam supports healthy weight when following suggested serving sizes.
  2. All fruit contains a substance called Pectin. During the process of heating, when making jams, this substance gets modified. The modified pectin can help reduce your chance of developing cancer, as well as: Improve the health of hair, skin, and fingernails, decrease bone loss, and diverticulitis.
  3. Jams are rich in sugar and a great source of Fiber and Energy. They restrain hunger, helping us to eat less. By doing so, they also reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
