When the coconut tree is tapped, it produces a highly nutrient-rich "sap" that exudes from the coconut blossoms. This sap is very low glycemic (GI of only 35), is an abundant source of amino acids, minerals, vitamin C, broad-spectrum B vitamins, and has a nearly neutral pH.
Small batches ensure that our low glycemic Coconut Nectar, made from this natural sap, is a raw, enzymatically alive product, low temperature evaporated for only 1 hour (to remove excess moisture), never exceeding an average summer day in the tropics. By contrast, most agave syrup is hydrolyzed at temperatures up to 140 degrees F. for approximately 36 hours (the end product containing 90% fructose, compared to coconut nectar which is only 0.5% glucose, 1.5% fructose, 16% sucrose, 82% FOS - a prebiotic inulin that promotes digestive health.)Recipe Tips:
The naturally sweet, mild flavor of our nectar is an ideal sweetener for use on pancakes, over cereal, in tea, smoothies and all your favorite dessert recipes! (Our delicious coconut nectar does not have a coconutty flavor.)Ingredients:
Raw coconut sap (organic certification pending.) (Each hand-made batch may vary slightly in color, flavor and glycemic index. Depending on the season and weather conditions, the GI of this product may range plus or minus 5, the average being a glycemic index of 35.)
