Organic Coconut Palm Sugar by Sunfood

Coconut palm sugar is a delicious low-glycemic sweetener that is rich in minerals and provides consistent energy via delayed glucose absorption and the nutritional boost of minerals. Sunfood's palm sugar comes directly from the blossoms of Indonesian coconut trees. The subtly sweet taste of coconut sugar is similar to brown sugar with a hint of caramel.  Unrefined, unprocessed, and mineral-rich, it is much healthier than other sweetener options. I love this stuff in baking, smoothies, and to balance out the flavor of savory dishes. It’s great in fresh-brewed ginger tea. But you already know what to do with sugar. Use this instead.  ~~

For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.

Coconut palm sugar is a delicious low-glycemic sweetener that is rich in minerals and provides consistent energy via delayed glucose absorption and the nutritional boost of minerals. Nutiva’s coconut palm sugar comes directly from the blossoms of Indonesian coconut trees. It is made by evaporating coconut nectar from tropical palm flowers. The process of making coconut sap sugar is similar to how maple sugar crystals are made. Farmers gently hand-harvest the buds and collect the sweet nectar using traditional methods. It’s one of the healthiest and most sustainable sweeteners available.

The subtly sweet taste of coconut sugar is similar to brown sugar with a hint of caramel.  Unrefined and unprocessed, it is much healthier than other refined and chemical sweetener options. Mineral-rich, coconut sugar contains potassium, magnesium, zinc, iron, and B vitamins. It also has a lower glycemic index than other sweeteners on the market, so it’ll keep you balanced and healthy.

I love this stuff in baking, smoothies, and to balance out the flavor of savory dishes. It’s great in fresh-brewed ginger tea. But you already know what to do with sugar. Use this instead. 

A sustainable sweetener

Due to their great ecological tolerance, the cultivation of coconut trees is highly sustainable. Most coconut trees have a lifespan of 75-80 years and an output of 25-30 coconuts per year. 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). Tropical coconut palms require little water to thrive and can actually restore damaged soils and regenerate ecosystems which help support wildlife.

The story behind Sunfoods and why they give two licks about health

The Sunfood™ Story

Years ago, a group of health minded individuals noticed an alarming trend in their towns and communities. They saw friends and family eating and drinking dead, processed foods full of chemicals. They knew that this was the path to obesity and disease, ultimately leading to western medicine’s suppression of symptoms with drugs and scalpels.  This is not true healing. 

Sunfood was born from their desire to create an alternative path to health.  We believe that the secrets to health, energy and long life are found in nature through diet and nutrition.  Building upon the wisdom of traditional and modern natural healing methods from all over the world, we are here to share powerful information and superfoods that help people heal and rejuvenate themselves naturally.
