Coconut Blossom Sugar

Coconut Palm Sugar

Also known as coconut palm sugar or coconut nectar

Coconut Blossom Sugar is a natural alternative sweetener made from the sugary sap of the coconut palm tree, Coco nucifera. It isa low glycemic natural sweetener that produce a slow release of energy without the highs and lows, ideally suited to diabetics.

The liquid nectar is collected from the cut flower buds, then boiled typically for 3-4 hours, which prevents fermentation and drives off the water. The reduced sap is then cooled before being ground to form a naturally brown crystalline sugar. It's a simple process that produces a simple and high quality product.

Our Coconut Blossom Sugar is 100% pure coconut palm nectar, with nothing added. There are some coconut palm sugars on the market that are mxed with cane sugar or other malt-based!

Nutrition

Coconut Blossom Sugar is nutrient rich, especially high in potassium, magnesium, zinc and iron, as well as being a good source of vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and C.

Coconut Blossom Sugar is rated as GI 35, which is lower than other sweeteners (eg. agave GI 42, Honey GI 55 and cane sugar GI 68) and the same as our other favourite natural sweetener, Sweet Freedom. This has benefits for weight control and improving glucose and lipid levels in people with diabetes (type 1 and type 2).
