Big Tree Farms Coconut Palm Sugar
Move over refined sugar, there's a new sweetener in town and it goes by the name of coconut sugar! It's healthier, more nutritious and tastes just as good as the processed cane variety.
Big Tree Farms' coconut sugar is unrefined, organic, gluten-free and high in nutrients. It also has a low GI (35 glycemic index), compared to other sweeteners such as agave (42 GI), honey (55 GI) and cane sugar (68 GI), therefore it helps to maintain lower blood sugar and insulin levels. Coconut Palm Sugar Blonde is also a source of calcium, iron and potassium. U.S. health guru Dr. Oz considers it to be "the best alternative to cane sugar"on the market.
And its taste? Surprisingly it tastes nothing like coconut! Instead it is similar in taste and colour to brown sugar with a caramel twist. Perfect for baking, stirring into your beverages and most importantly, satisfying those cravings.
If that isn't enough, Big Tree Farms are more than just a brand that sells delicious goodness. Like us, they are committed to making a social impact by helping their farmer partners build sustainable livelihoods.
