Low GI natural sweetener from the coconut tree blossom

A genuine delicacy, this natural low GI sweetener is obtained from the nectar of the coconut palm blossom. The Glycemic Index (GI) of coconut nectar is 35. Producers climb on each individual tree and "tap" the flowers to recollect their nectar twice a day. This nectar is a great alternative sweetener for people who are sensitive to fructose since the nectar is mostly composed of sucrose and it is rich in vitamins and minerals.

Coconut palm trees benefit the ecosystem by restoring damaged soil and requiring very little water. Coconut tree farming produces 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.

To obtain the coconut nectar, the coconut blossom is "tapped" or "sliced" so the nectar can flow into a small container which needs to be emptied every day manually by climbing all the way to the top of the coconut tree. An average tall coconut tree produces 3 to 4.5 litters of fresh nectar per day. The collected nectar is then heated to evaporate excess water and to produce a viscous light brown syrup.

Coconut nectar contains over 16 amino acids and four different B vitamins. It is a source of iron, potassium, magnesium and zinc.
