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 individul tree and "tap" the flowers to recollect their nectar twice a day.
Coconut sugar is a great alternative sweetener for persons sensitive to fructuose since itr is mostly composed of sucrose. In addition to a beautiful flavour, it is rich in vitamins and minerals. The flavour is sweeet 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.
