Organic Life’s Coconut Sugar is made from coconut tree sap, freshly collected from coconut flower buds & then dried to evaporate moisture. The resulting natural crystalline sugar granules have a subtly sweet taste, similar to brown sugar with a hint of caramel.
Unrefined and unprocessed, coconut palm sugar is considered to be healthier than other refined sweetener options and has a very low Glycemic Index (GI) of just 35. It has a high mineral content, being a rich source of potassium, magnesium, zinc and iron and in addition to this it contains Vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6.
When compared to brown sugar, coconut sugar has 36 times the iron, four times the magnesium and over 10 times the amount of zinc.
Compared to cane sugar, coconut trees produce 50-75% more sugar per acre but use less than one fifth of the soil nutrients and water, making Coconut Sugar an extremely sustainable, earth friendly product.
