Our coconut sugar is a purely natural product derived from the dried nectar of coconut blossoms. Coconut nectar is quite sweet as well as rich in minerals, vitamins and amino acids. The nutritional value of coconut sugar makes it an ideal alternative to household sugar, which is typically refined and has a low nutritional value.
In Indonesia, coconut blossom nectar is traditionally used to make coconut syrup and coconut sugar without the use of additives. These coconut-based sweeteners are popular on account of their mild flavour and light caramel notes.
Despite the sweet flavour of coconut sugar, it has an impressively low glycemic index of just 35GI (Glycemic Index). A low glycemic index can help prevent spikes and sharp drops in blood sugar, thus making coconut sugar an ideal alternative to household sugar and sweeteners. In moderate quantities, coconut sugar can be suitable for diabetics and those who would like to avoid blood sugar fluctuation.
