Granulated sugar 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 people who are sensitive to fructuose since it is mostly composed of sucrose and it is rich in vitamins and minerals. The flavour is sweeet and resembles a bit of molasse.

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.

Sourced from the Island of Java in Indonesia where coconut sugar is used as the main natural sweetener for the local population and provides income to many families.

The coconut blossom is "tapped" to obtain the nectar. An average tall coconut tree produces 3 to 4.5 litters of fresh nectar per day. The collected nectar is then evaported to produce a semi-solid brick. After it has cooled down, the brick is granulated to produce a light brown sugar rich in minerals and vitamins.

Typically a farmer can collect nectar from 30 to 50 trees a day yielding an average of 15kg of coconut sugar per producer family or 450 kg per month. (FAO)

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