Description


Loving Earth’s Organic Coconut Sugar is sourced from the island of Java in Indonesia. Produced from coconut palm blossoms, it has a beautifully rich, toffee-like flavour.


 


Compared to cane sugar, coconut trees produce 50-75% more sugar per acre but use less than one fifth of the soil nutrients and water, making Coconut Sugar an extremely sustainable product. Coconut sugar is naturally low on the Glycaemic Index (GI), with a rating of 35. In comparison, most commercial honeys are GI 55 and cane sugars are GI 68. Low GI ratings allow for a slow release of energy, efficiently fuelling your day-to-day activities and avoiding the highs and lows associated with most commercial sugars.


 


Many people with a sensitivity for fructose have found coconut sugar to be beneficial since it is primarily sucrose based (up to 89% depending on the crop). However, it is important to note that it isn’t entirely fructose free and can contain between 3 to 5%. Another point to consider is that sucrose itself is a disaccharide made up of a combination of glucose and fructose, so the exact amount of fructose may vary accordingly. Due to its rich mineral profile, coconut sugar has numerous health benefits but like all concentrated foods, it should be enjoyed in moderation.
