- Coconut Sugar
Botanical Name: Cocos Nucifera
Granulated nectar from the coconut tree blossom
A genuine delicacy, this natural low GI sweetener is obtained from the nectar of the coconut palm blossom. Producers climb on each individual tree and "tap" the flowers to recollect their nectar twice a day Coconut sugar is a great alternative sweetener for persons sensitive to fructose since itr is mostly composed of sucrose and it is rich in vitamins and minerals. The flavour is sweet and resembles a bit of molasses.
Coconut palm trees benefit the ecosystem by restoring damaged soil and requiring very little water. Coconut tree farming produce more sugar per hectare than sugar cane (50-75% more) while using less than 20% of the soil nutrients and water for that high level of production.
