Storage: Be sure to put your jar in the refrigerator after receiving it. This will lengthen the life of the product.
This product melts at 90 degrees Fahrenheit, and will harden again under that temperature. This does not affect the integrity of the product. If you live in a hot area and wish to have this shipped with ice packs, you may purchase them on our website here: ice packs. If temperature is a concern for you, we strongly recommend purchasing ice packs to help with transit, but The Raw Food World is not liable if your items arrive warm and the ice packs have melted.
A few girls who started consuming this new crystallized coconut sugar product are now eating it STRAIGHT from the jar. They stated that due to its richness, smoothness, sweetness and overall creamy consistency, they like it better than chocolate and are using it as a replacement!
This Organic Crystallized Coconut Sap Sugar is an IDEAL healthy replacement for Agave Nectar. A lot of the HIPPEST raw food restaurants are using gallons of this stuff in their recipes now, including Cafe Gratitude, Pure Food and Wine and Chaya Ryvka (The Raw Cake Chef at our Wedding). In fact, the creator of this new coconut sugar product told us that Pure Food and Wine just started out with six little jars to test it out; after they played around with it for just a bit, they upped their orders to MANY gallons at a time - it's THAT good!!!
The BEAUTY of this coconut sugar is that it has a much lower glycemic index compared to other sweeteners... and the CRAZY part is that you would NEVER guess that it is lower glycemic. Angela and I did a taste test and after consuming a good amount of this coco sugar, we didn't experience any negative reactions, as we would have done if it had been honey for example instead, which is high glycemic. After tasting this, I would have guessed it was an EXTREMELY high glycemic product due to how RICH, SUGARY, and SWEET it is!
We have this new Crystallized Coconut Sap Sugar in two sizes. The smaller 8.8oz size is perfect to test the product out, but I am telling you now that it won't last you long after you taste it for the first time! So, you may even want to start with the better value 21.16oz larger size!!!
Coconut sugar is derived from the sweet nutritious sap of the unopened Coconut blossoms. Small community farmers collect the fresh sap in short time periods to maintain its freshness and high quality. It is thickened under controlled heat to avoid over cooking which would affect the nutrients and acidity. Our coconut sugar is rich and moist, light brown in color, and has a pleasant sweetness with a distinct caramel coconut aroma.
Coconut sugar contains only 12 % sugars, and has a nutritional content far beyond all other available sweeteners; it is high in Potassium, Magnesium, Zinc and Iron, it is a natural source of vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and C and amino acids (specially glutamic acid). Extremely low glycemic (35!) to favor weight control, people with hypoglycemia and diabetes.
Our Coconut Caramel Sugar is 100% natural, organic, unbleached, free from additives and artificial flavoring. Only sap from coconut trees are harvested, this is not palm sugar where other palm varieties would be used and compromise the exquisite quality.
For the health conscious consumers and diabetics, it can be considered to be the best sweetener. Melts easy in hot and cold beverages, delicious in deserts, smoothies, pastries. A small spoonful of our rich caramel coconut sugar is a healthy treat to overcome cravings and gives instant energy. Coconut sugar is a sustainable product and supports local community and families in Thailand.
