Sunfood organic coconut palm sugar comes from the blossoms of Indonesian coconut trees (Cocos nucifera), made by evaporating coconut nectar gently hand-harvest from tropical palm flowers. The collected syrup is then kettle-boiled, dehydrated, and ground into crystals. Coconut palm sugar looks similar to brown sugar; however, it has not been chemically altered or enhanced in any way, making it a pure, natural, whole food sweetener. The Food and Agriculture Organization has reported that palm sweeteners are the most sustainable type of sweetener in the world, as tropical coconut palms can be tapped for 70+ years without damaging the tree or the ecosystem.
Make our organic coconut palm sugar a 1:1 direct replacement for the cane sugar in your kitchen. Why change? Coconut palm sugar is higher in nutrient content, including magnesium and potassium, than white cane sugar. Coconut palm sugar is also low glycemic, meaning that the sweetener does not generate the high-and-crash that comes from typical sugars, and our body converts it to usable energy instead of fat.
In a TV segment earlier this year, Dr. Oz called coconut palm sugar the ‘best new sugar alternative’ stating that switching from regular sugar to coconut palm sugar could prevent the blood sugar crashes that make you hungry and then cause you to gain weight.
A recent Sunfood customer reviewed our coconut palm sugar: “Delicious! It is not as sweet as sugar, but does taste like caramel and brown sugar combined. I love cooking with this, and feel great about giving this to my children, knowing how safe, healthy, and nutritious this is.”
