Organic Coconut Sugar
Coconut sugar is a delicious, mineral-rich natural sugar made from the sap of cut flower buds of the coconut palm. With a rich caramel flavour, it's certified organic, minimally processed and has not been filtered. 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.
Our organic coconut sugar comes from the coconut palm blossoms of Sri Lanka. It caramelizes well, like sugar, thus making great brownies or chewy cookies. Coconut Sugar is naturally low on the Glycemic 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.
Organic farming uses the best of traditional agriculture and responsiveness to the land to create biodiversity and environmental balance; a sustainable approach free from artificial intervention.
This product is naturally gluten, nut and soy free. Please bear in mind that we do pack a wide range of natural food products on shared equipment including nuts, seeds, grains and cereals. This includes sesame, peanuts, soy and gluten. While we do our best to avoid any kind of cross contamination, this can occasionally occur and any of our products may contain traces of these, unless we have specified the product is otherwise certified.
TWC source this product as Certified Organic (spec sheets available on request). We then pack it down in a yet-to-be-certified organic facility. This means it can't be sold as Certified Organic (just 'Organic'). We're in the process of gaining our very own organic certification and expect this will be complete by mid 2019. It's then that these very same high quality organic products will regain their 'certified' status on the TWC website. Some old labels may say Certified Organic on them. The product is no different whatsoever and the pack down area uses all organic cleaning agents. Clear as mud? ;)
