What is 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, 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. We purchase our sugar off smallholder farmers and are ensured that 100% of the revenue from growing, harvesting and primary processing stays within the local Balinese community.

How is Coconut Sugar produced?

Farmers climb the coconut palms and collect the sugar blossom nectar by gently slicing the flower. Once harvested the nectar is transferred into kettles 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!

Meet the producers

From the main island of Java, Indonesia smallholder farmers in Boyolali grow and process our Coconut Sugar. 100% of the money from harvesting and primary processing stays within the local community.
