Coconut Sugar

It is made from sap that is extracted from the coconut tree. The taste of pure coconut palm sugar is similar to brown sugar; 1 teaspoon of coconut sugar contains numerous trace minerals that are not found in refined sugar. These minerals include phosphorous (important for bone growth and kidney function), potassium (reduces hypertension and lowers blood sugar levels), nitrogen (treats cardiovascular diseases), magnesium (regulates the metabolism and stimulates the brain), manganese (an important antioxidant) and copper (helps release energy and aids melanin production in the skin) as well as lower amounts of zinc, iron, calcium, boron, sulfur, sodium and chlorine.

According to Dr. Jonny Bowden in his The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth, coconut provides healthy fats, including lauric acid, which are antiviral, antimicrobial, immune-boosting, and even help fight some cancers. Your body uses the easier-to-metabolize medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) in coconut to burn as fuel rather than store as fat.

Our coconut sugar is unbleached, unfiltered and free or preservatives.
