The Coconut Secret Story...
When both our parents suddenly became diabetic, my brother and I were deeply inspired to search the world for a pure, raw, truly delicious, low glycemic sweetener. We were rewarded and blessed beyond our expectations, in our discovery of the traditional sweetener made from the sap of the wondrous coconut tree. You are now holding in your hands, the fruits of our long journey. It is our joy to be able to share with you the gifts of these exceptional ingredients. Leslie and Randy
Health Secrets of Coconuts Crystals
When the coconut tree is tapped, it produces a nutrient-rich "sap" that exudes from the coconut blossoms. This sap is very low glycemic (GI of only 35), diabetic-friendly, is an abundant source of minerals, 17 amino acids, vitamin C, broad-spectrum B vitamins, and has a nearly neutral pH.
Small batches ensure that our pure, low glycemic Coconut Crystals, made from this natural sap, is a raw, enzymatically alive product, low temperature vacuum evaporated only to remove excess moisture and allow for crystallization. By contrast, most brown sugar is boiled at temperatures up to 221 degrees F. (the end product containing 93% sucrose, compared to sap crystals which is only0.5% glucose, 1.5% fructose, 16% sucrose, and 82% inulin -- a prebiotic that promotes digestive health.)
The naturally sweet, earthy flavor of our Crystals is an ideal sweetener for use over cereals, in tea, and all your favorite dessert recipes! (Our delicious Coconut Crystals does not have a coconutty flavor. Each hand-made batch may vary slightly in flavor and color.)
