Premium Organic Coconut Palm Sugar

Coconut Palm Sugar is made from the nectar (sap) of the coconut palm tree. It has a creamy, caramel sweetness that's perfect for sweets and desserts, as well as curries and savory sauces.  Here's why you should consider it for your sweetening needs:

 

  • Coconut sugar’s low glycemic index measurement of 35 compares favorably to cane sugar’s 50, and makes coconut sugar one of the lowest GI unprocessed sweeteners on the market. Low GI foods convey benefits for weight control and general health maintenance and help those with diabetes improve their glucose and lipid levels.
  • Coconut sugar, also known as “palm sugar” or “evaporated palm sugar” looks very much like regular brown sugar from cane—it tastes sweet, with a caramel flavor all its own and has a moist, crumbly texture.
  • Coconut sugar contains more minerals than brown cane sugar, with measurable amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, chlorine, magnesium, sulfur and other micronutrients.
  • Our coconut sugar is 100% natural, with no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. It is USDA Certified Organic and Certified Kosher.
  • Coconut sugar is made by evaporating the coconut sap, which is hand-harvested by traditional sugar farmers who climb high into the canopy of coconut palms to slice the blossoms from their stems and collect the sweet nectar.  The collected nectar is then kettle-boiled into a thick caramelly syrup , dried, and ground into crystals.
  • The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) reports that palm sweeteners (i.e., coconut sugar) are the single most sustainable type of sweetener in the world. Tropical coconut palms are an ecologically beneficial tree crop that grow in diverse, wildlife-supportive agroecosystems, restore damaged soils and require little water.
  • Coconut palms (Cocos nucifera) are a more productive plant than sugar cane, producing on average 50%-75% more sugar per acre than cane.
  • Coconut sugar can be used in recipes in place of cane sugar in a 1:1 replacement ratio.
  • This sugar is not only low glycemic...but it has an incredible amount of nutrients both macro and micro and as well has a ton of amino acids!
  • The Food and Agriculture Organization of the World Bank recently released a report (8 years in the making) that stated palm sugar was bar none the world's most sustainable sweetener...98% smallholder owned and operated as an industry (as opposed to below 5% smallholder for cane), coconut palm sugar can be tapped without harming the environment or the tree itself for over 70 years! And coconuts have actually been proven to BUILD SOIL and REGENERATE ECOSYSTEMS...Why, because they are like massive straws...sucking up nutrients and water from often desertified lands and making up to 90% of what they pull up available for other plants. Palms need VERY little water or nutrients to thrive! This is a staple that you can be proud to have in your pantry and can be happy to use excessively in your cooking!

    Excellent, golden brown sugar flavor with a lower GI rating. Sprinkled over some scones before baking and they turned out so good. Good on oatmeal, too.

    I find this tastes better than rapadura, it is an excellent way to sweeten desserts without refined sugar. I made some brownies with it and they turned out great. It makes your foods taste better. I'm going to try and see if my sugar addicted mother will try it.

    I use this sugar instead of regular sugar in everything from my lattes to cookies to sweetening my smoothies. I think it's better for my kids since it has a lower glycemic index rating also.

    I used the coconut palm sugar to bake an apple pie (in both the filling and the crust) for our Christmas party this year. Not only did it ensure that some of our guests, who were unable to consume other sugary treats, were able to enjoy the pie, but it was the fastest moving treat on the table. There was not a piece left over after the party and everyone was asking for the recipe and where to buy the sugar. Even the left over crust (which usually sits in our fridge for a few days before it's eventually thrown out) was eaten within a few hours.
