Our Organic Coconut Sugar

Coconut Sugar

Produced from coconut palm blossoms, Coconut sugar is a great tasting, mineral rich, low GI (35) cane sugar alternative. It is certified organic by Control Union Netherlands, minimally processed, has not been filtered and has a rich toffee like flavor. Coconut sugar can be used 1:1 as a replacement for brown sugar in any recipe. It is suitable for baking, and makes a great replacement for cane sugar in tea and coffee. The Food and Agriculture organization is touting this product as the most sustainable sweetener in the world. We produce our sugars with Banyumas, Purbalingga, and Banjarnegara farmer comunities.

How produced Coconut Sugar

Farmers climb the coconut tree and collect the sugar blossom nectar by gently slicing the flower. Once harvested the nectar is transferred into bamboo kettles (we called in central java "pongkor") and boiled. The kettle-boiling process lowers the moisture content of the nectar, which enables solidification. Once cooled, the crystallized brick is then granulated.

Health Benefits

Coconut Sugar has a high mineral content. It is a rich source of potassium, magnesium, zinc and iron. In addition to this it contains Vitamin B1, B2, B3 and B6. When compared to brown sugar, Coconut Sugar has twice the iron, four times the magnesium and over 10 times the amount of zinc!

We are the producer

From the main island of Java, Indonesia smallholder farmers in Banyumas, Purbalingga, and Banjarnegara grow and process our Coconut Sugar.
