LOW GLYCEMIC (GI of 35)
SWEET TASTING, VERSATILE sugar alternative
Health Secrets of Coconut Crystals When the coconut tree is taped, it produces a naturally sweet, nutrient-rich “sap” that exudes from teh coconut blossoms. This sap is very low glycemic and contains 17 amino acids, minerals, vitamin C, broad-spectrum B vitamins, and has a nearly neutral pH.
Low temperature evaporated (to remove excess moisture and allow for crystallization). Most brown cane sugar is boiled at temps up to 221 degrees F. (the end product containing 93% sucrose, compared to Coconut Crystals which is only 16% sucrose).
The naturally sweet, earthy flavor of our Crystals is an ideal sweetener for use in cookies, muffins, confections, over cereals, in teas, and all your favorite dessert recipes.
Coconut Sap Crystals grown without chemcials, pesticides or herbicides. (Organic Certification pending)
