Abstract: The goal of this paper is to provide a new look into the mechanism of jaggery replaced in large quantity into the concrete and to examine the impact on the physical behaviour of it. In this study, the Portland Pozzolana Cement (PPC) which is readily supplemented with fly ash was used as cement. The organic admixture (jaggery) rich in carbohydrate was supplemented with 0, 5, 10 and 15 % in place of cement by weight. The behaviour of cement paste and fresh properties of concrete was analysed using normal consistency, setting time, workability and compaction setup. Mechanical properties of concrete were checked with binary investigation i.e. with a non-destructive and destructive method. The results designates that the fresh behaviour of concrete was amended continuously with increased supplementation of admixture in concrete. In case of mechanical behaviour, the concrete was found with the varying output of strength when compared with non-destructive and destructive approaches. In both cases, the performance of concrete was found to be dwindled largely, with slight escalation at 15 % jaggery.
