Our Organic Evaporated Coconut Palm Sugar is cultivated from the Indonesian. It is derived from the sweet nectar of the sugar blossoms that
grow at the top of the tropical coconut palm tree (Cocos Nucifera). Traditional
local farmers climb high into the canopy of swaying coconut trees and harvest
this sweet nectar by gently slicing open the flower. This nectar is then converted
into its traditional crystalline form in traditional sugarhouses that allow for
small batch Coconut Palm Sugar production.
Our Coconut Palm Sugar is naturally low on the Glycemic Index (GI), which
is often important to those who are concerned about weight control and diabetes.
Coconut Palm Sugar is rated as a GI 35. In comparison, most honey is GI 55 and
Jose Cane Sugar is GI 68.
Coconut Palm Sugar has been known to deliver a slow
release of energy, which sustains the human body through your daily activities
without experiencing the ?highs? and ?lows? so often
associated with cane sugar. Coconut Palm Sugar also has a nutritional content
far richer than any other commercially available sweeteners. It is particularly
high in Potassium, Magnesium, Zinc and Iron. It is also a natural source of vitamins
B1, B2, B3, B6 and vitamin C.
Our Palm Sugar can be used as a 1:1 replacement to cane sugar in most applications.
It dissolves in water, making it extremely versatile. It is perfect as a sweetener
in smoothies, shakes, spreads, cereals, energy bars, and deserts of all kinds.
