What is coconut sugar and how is it made?
Coconut sugar is also called coconut palm sugar.
It is a natural sugar made from sap, which is the sugary circulating fluid of the tropical palm tree blossom, harvested high in the swaying canopy by traditional farmers in exotic locales. It is often confused with palm sugar, which is similar but made from a different type of palm tree.
Coconut sugar is made in a natural 2-step process:
- A cut is made on the flower of the coconut palm and the liquid sap is collected into containers.
- The sap is placed under heat until most of the water has evaporated.
Like raw or brown sugar, only better, boasting a naturally low Glycemic Index (GI35) which is nearly have that of cane sugar (GI68). A nutritional content richer than possibly all commercially available sweeteners, including 12 amino acids and minerals, is an added bonus – a delicious taste with planet friendly attributes.
