Description

Organic Coconut Palm Sugar is harvested from a flower.

Organic Coconut Palm Sugar has become a staple in the whole food world because of its addictive ‘caramelly’ flavour.   Coconuts have been harvested and used for thousands of years in South and South-East Asia for their hard shell, firm flesh, fragrant water, delicious oil and their sweet palm flower nectar!

Organic coconut sugar is probably the most delicious of all these uses and it contains a wide range of vital nutrients it is a perfect choice for anyone following a whole food diet.  Coconut sugar is a perfect addition to baking recipes, raw desserts or simply to sweeten herbal teas.

To make this special sugar the harvesters cut a line on the flower of the coconut palm and the liquid sap is collected.  The sap is heated to evaporate any moisture and reduce it into sugar crystals.  The end result looks a bit like demerara sugar and has a rich, aromatic flavour similar to caramel.  This rich, fragrant sugar is deep brown in colour and absolutely delicious.

If you want a recipe to get started with try this yummy lemon cake or this decadent chocolate granola recipe.

    The taste of this sugar is amazing, I love using it for making chocolate as it leaves a nice grainy texture.

Family Tip:

  1. Coconut sugar is a great alternative to normal white sugar in any baking recipe.
  2. We love coconut sugar and find it goes particularly well with walnuts,hazelnuts and cacao for a winning team!
  3. All sugar is sugar – so coconut sugar is best twinned with protein to keep blood sugar levels more stable.
