Organic Coconut Flower Sugar contains only 100% coconut flower sugar and is free from cane sugar, which is commonly added to reduce cost in commercial palm sugar and “Gula Melaka”.
Until the advent of processed white sugar, this was the primary nutrient rich sugar used in Southeast Asian cooking. All of the components of a coconut have wonderful health benefits, but the nectar or sugar contains 17 amino acids, minerals, and vitamin C; has a broad spectrum of B vitamins (Vitamin B1, B2, B3 and B6); and is high in potassium, magnesium, zinc, and iron. It also has a high content of inulin, a prebiotic fiber, which feeds our intestinal flora and helps boost digestive and immune functions. Coconut Flower sugar has 400 x more potassium than white sugar and 15 x more than brown sugar!
The glycemic index of Coconut Flower Sugar is only 35, a low glycemic food because it produces a slow energy release, helping to sustain your body through daily activities without “highs” and “lows.” This is important to those who are concerned about weight loss and diabetes. Make this your replacement for any refined sugar in your kitchen and lead a healthier life!
