Enlighten your sweet tooth with this delicious alternative to ordinary sugar! Great taste, low-glycemic, sustainably-harvested ... what's not to love? Organic Coconut nectar is mild, smooth, and perfect for your morning cup of tea or as a recipe substitute for ordinary sugar or agave. Like a "whole food," Coconut nectar is a "whole sweetener." Coconut nectar is merely the dehydrated, crystallized sap of the coconut palm flower, unrefined and naturally high in ancillary nutrients.
- Made from the fragrant sap of Coconut palm blossoms for exquisite floral taste.
- Works in any recipe just like maple syrup, honey, or agave
- Sustainably harvested in wildlife-friendly coconut groves
- Low-glycemic, so it won't cause the energy crash that sugar or honey do
- Vitamin & mineral-rich — not "empty calories!"
Everyone's heard about the dangers of High Fructose Corn Syrup - Coconut nectar is mainly sucrose, which the body digests more slowly. Because this delicious, unrefined sweetener doesn't cause insulin spikes and blood-sugar crashes, you won't experience the post-sugar blues, unhealthy cravings, and weight gain that typically happen with sweet foods. And unlike regular table sugar, Coconut nectar is loaded with minerals, enzymes, more than 14 amino acids and other nutrients. These nutrients also help slow down absorption of the sucrose, which is why Coconut nectar is so low on the glycemic index: GI 35!
(Most commercial Honeys are GI 55 and Cane Sugars are GI 68)
Refined cane sugar is a chemically-pure crystal of 100% sucrose comprised of short chain saccharides (which digest quickly, causing blood sugar spikes). Lowering our intake of high-glycemic foods, such as cane sugar, has benefits for weight control and improving glucose and lipid levels in people with Diabetes.
Coconut nectar, on the other hand, contains much less sucrose, and this sucrose is mostly comprised of long-chain saccharides, which the body must break down, so they are absorbed more slowly. (Coconut nectar also has additional small percentages of fructose and glucose.)
Suggested Use: Use in place of cane sugar, honey or agave to sweeten tea, coffee, cereal, baked goods, and desserts.
