Our new addition to our Superfoods category is a natural, healthy & aromatic sweetener – perfect for your CNY cooking and baking!
Nature’s Superfoods’ Organic Coconut Palm Sugar is 100% natural, unrefined, unbleached, preservative-free, and contains higher nutritional value than all commercially available sweeteners.
Traditionally made from the fragrant sweet nectar of the coconut palm (cocos nucifera) flower, this ecologically-friendly sweetener boasts a low glycemic index of only 35 (much lower than the GI of raw or brown cane sugar!), making it diabetic-friendly and an ideal sweetener for the health- and weight-conscious.
Use super-versatile coconut palm sugar as a 1:1 replacement for regular cane sugar in smoothies, hot/cold beverages, cooking and baking! It tastes very much like brown sugar, has a wonderful caramel-like flavour as well as the crystal-like consistency of granulated sugar.
