This natural Indonesian Coconut Palm Sugar resembles brown sugar and has a rich, rounded caramel like sweetness. It is a healthy and sustainable alternative to cane sugar.
The Food and Agriculture organisation of the UN has named Coconut Palm Sugar the single most sustainable sweetener in the world! This Coconut Palm Sugar is harvested three times a year by tapping the coconut palm flower in the tree top and collecting its delicious nectar. After collection, the nectar is boiled, and then granulated. No coconut palms are being cut down in this process, making it a sustainable alternative to cane sugar.
Healthy and Nutritious
Coconut Palm Sugar is a healthier choice than white or brown cane sugar. It has a low Glycemic Index of 35 compared to 70 of brown cane sugar. Coconut Palm Sugar also contains higher levels of essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids than most other commercially available sweeteners and sugars.
Coconut Palm Sugar adds a rich depth of sweet flavour to desserts and baked goods.
It does not have a specific coconut flavour making it a really versatile sweetener in a wide range of recipes. In fact, you can use Coconut Palm Sugar in exactly the same way as you would cane sugar.
