Further information about Coconut Palm Sugar
Of coconut sugar, Gandhi said: “The juice of the coconut tree can be transformed into a sugar as soft as honey… Nature created this product such that it could not be processed in factories. Palm sugar can only be produced in palm tree habitats. Local populations can easily turn the nectar into coconut blossom sugar. It is a way to solve the world's poverty. It is also an antidote against misery.” Gandhi 3.5.1939
Coconut palm sugar is acquired from the flowers growing high on coconut trees, which are opened to collect their liquid flower nectar. This nectar is then evaporated to form a crystalline sugar that's light brown in color and naturally rich in a number of key vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, including potassium, zinc, iron, and vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6.
Remarkably, even though coconut sugar dissolves and melts just like regular sugar, it has a far superior taste. Coconut sugar adds a depth to almost any recipe. It can be used in smoothies, and raw food desserts (coconut palm sugar is not raw by the way, but neither is agave nectar or maple syrup). You can use coconut palm sugar as a replacement for regular white sugar in any recipe. You'll get improved taste, improved nutrition and a lower overall glycemic index for the finished food.
It has a glycaemic index of 35. By comparison, the GI of honey is 55 – 60. At just 35, our coconut sugar has a glycaemic index very similar to milk or cooked carrots. And yet it's a super delicious sweetener which is low in fructose.
Ecologically Beneficial and Sustainable
Due to their great ecological tolerance, the cultivation of coconut trees is highly sustainable. Coconut trees are known as a three generation crop having a lifespan of 75-80 years, able to provide for the coconut farmer, his children and eventually grandchildren.
Coconut trees help to stabilize land from erosion and increase soil fertility and water conservation. Coconut sugar production is year-round, not seasonal like cane sugar (where the plants have to be removed and re-planted each season).
The future of coconut palm sugar:
With the growing number of people switching to coconut sugar, it looks like becoming the next "big thing" in natural sweeteners. Many raw chocolate makers have changed from agave to coconut sugar and a growing number of health and speciality stores are beginning to stock it. Before too long, we'll likely see it in natural food products such as healthy cereals and wholefood snack bars.
You can try it yourself in your own smoothies, drinks and recipes! Enjoy your coconut palm sugar. It could just take your tastebuds to a whole new level.

We were fortunate to launch coconut sugar into the UK in 2008. Since then it has gone on to become a staple in the kitchen and used by chocolate makers and natural products producers. Ever since our first customers tasted it and gave us feedback, they said how they would love to use coconut sugar all the time if it not for the high price. Well we have been able to reduce the cost substantially due to its growing popularity, allowing coconut farmers to benefit from economies of scale and now it is less than half the price it was back then.
