Our organic coconut sugar is made from the sap of cut flower buds from Coconut Palm tree. This is some of the most fragrant, flavorful sugars we've ever tasted. Hints of toasted coconut and caramel waft from the open bag. Not quite as sweet as cane sugar or as overpowering as dark muscovado, it is loaded with toasty flavor - maple sugar fans will love this. Best of all it is nutrient rich and has a low glycemic index of only 35!
Coconut Palm Sugar is composed of 78% sugars and 22% nutrients such as zinc, iron, magnesium, potassium, some of the B vitamins, antioxidants and inulin, a prebiotic. It’s not surprising that it is so nutrient dense as the sap would be feeding the blossoms to create new coconuts. Also coconut palm is a more sustainable crop as it is nearly twice as productive as sugarcane and it grows in depleted soils.
This product is 100% natural and minimally processed. Taste, smell, texture, and color may vary from batch to batch. Due to its nature, this powder tends to clump. If clumping occurs, lay the bag on a flat surface and place a towel over the bag. Then pound on the bag until the clumps break up. The towel will help protect the bag from damage.
Suggested Uses: Use in place of regular sugar or other sweeteners. Sprinkle our organic coconut palm sugar on your oatmeal; use it instead of white sugar on top of creme brulee; make a syrup from it and drizzle it over some banana nut pancakes use it as part of the crumbly topping for crisps, crumbles or coffee cake; try it in coffee or herbal tea; use it to add a bit of sweetness to marinades and stir-fries, and experiment with all sorts of desserts. Or just put it right in your mouth for a sweet treat!
