Our 100% organic coconut sugar is a natural, low GI sweetener that combines a deliciously rich flavour with extensive health benefits. Derived from the flowers of coconut palms, coconut sugar has been enjoyed for centuries as a traditional sweetener in regions where these trees flourish, and it is fast becoming the preferred choice among organic food restaurants and health-conscious consumers.
Our highest quality organic coconut sugar crystals originate in Indonesia, where local farmers climb the coconut palms and collect the sugar blossom nectar by gently slicing each flower. It is then thickened under a controlled heat to condense the liquid to a dark brown sap. Once it has cooled and solidified, it is crystallised. This careful process ensures that the natural nutrients and minerals of the nectar are preserved, and nothing is added or filtered.
The result is a pure and healthy alternative to refined sugar or honey, perfect for desserts or baking, or straight from the packet as a delicious snack. With its natural sweetness and sumptuous caramel-like flavour, you won’t believe that our organic coconut sugar is rich in minerals, amino acids and B vitamins, and only 12% sugar. The naturally low glycemic index of 35 is comparable to most fruits and vegetables, roughly half that of cane sugar and significantly lower than most commercial honeys. This means that it is absorbed slowly, leading to a gradual rise in blood sugar and sustained energy levels over time, rather than the peaks and crashes associated with sugar. This makes organic coconut sugar perfect for diabetics, for weight control, and for those concerned with general good health, without having to compromise on great taste!
Not only that, but coconut sugar is arguably the most sustainable sweetener in the world. Coconut trees produce 50-75% more sugar per acre than sugar canes, but use less than one fifth of the nutrients and water in the soil, and coconut palm trees can produce fruit and nectar for up to 70 years! Many traditional communities consider coconut palms as the “Tree of Life”: just one tree can provide food, coconut water, roofing and building materials, and shade for smaller crops. Our organic coconut sugar therefore proudly supports local communities and economy in Indonesia.
