Coconut sugar is made from the sugar blossoms of fresh coconuts found in the tropics. It is harvested by slicing the bud of the coconut tree flower to release the sap or coconut nectar. This nectar is then boiled into a thick caramel, dried into crystals and powdered. Coconut sugar is similar in taste to brown sugar but far outweighs its nutritional profile. This sugar has a low glycemic index and is also a nutrient powerhouse - vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Coconut sugar is minimally processed, unbleached and contains no preservatives.
It is a sustainable natural sweetener that shows promising results for people who suffer from chronic illnesses or conditions such as diabetes, gallstones, cancer, heart disease and obesity.
