Quick Overview:

A pure and simple cane sugar alternative that provides the energy and nutrition your body needs for a healthy lifestyle.

Evaporated Palm Sugars are produced from the sun-kissed sweet juices of tropical coconut palm sugar blossoms. Traditional sugar farmers climb high into the canopy of swaying coconuts and harvest the sweet nectar by gently slicing the flower. Once collected, the nectars are kettle-boiled into a thick caramel and ground to a fine crystal.

While palm sugar has long been a staple for south East Asian culinary heritage and herbal medecine the evolution of this traditional sweetener into a practical and easy to use cane sugar alternative heralds an exciting moment for both the natural food and natural health industries. With an extremely low glycemic index an extremely high nutrient content and an affordable price for manufacturers and consumers alike.

Organic Evaporated Palm Sugar is the only sweetener on the market today which truly delivers on all aspects of health, transparent equity and traceability.

Details

  • Coconut sugar’s low glycemic index measurement of 35 compares favorably to cane sugar’s 50, and makes coconut sugar one of the lowest GI unprocessed sweeteners on the market.
  • Coconut sugar, also known as “palm sugar” or “evaporated palm sugar” looks very much like regular brown sugar from cane—it tastes sweet, with a caramel flavor all its own and has a moist, crumbly texture.
  • Coconut sugar contains more minerals than brown cane sugar, with measurable amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, chlorine, magnesium, sulfur and other micronutrients.
  • Ayni Food’s coconut sugar is 100% natural, with no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. It is USDA Certified Organic and Certified Kosher.
  • Coconut sugar is made by evaporating coconut flower nectar. The nectar is hand-harvested by traditional sugar farmers who climb high into the canopy of coconut palms to slice the blossoms from their stems and collect the sweet nectar. The collected nectar is then kettle-boiled into a thick caramel syrup, dried, and ground into crystals.
  • The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) reports that palm sweeteners (i.e., coconut sugar) are the single most sustainable type of sweetener in the world. Tropical coconut palms are an ecologically beneficial tree crop that grow in diverse, wildlife-supportive agro-ecosystems, restore damaged soilsand require little water.
  • Coconut palms (Cocos nucifera) are a more productive plant than sugar cane, producing on average 50%-75% more sugar per acre than cane.
  • Coconut sugar can be used in recipes in place of cane sugar in a 1:1 replacement ratio.
  • The Food and Agriculture Organization of the World Bank recently released a report (8 years in the making) that stated palm sugar was bar none the world's most sustainable sweetener...98% smallholder owned and operated as an industry (as opposed to below 5% smallholder for cane), coconut palm sugar can be tapped without harming the environment or the tree itself for over 70 years! And coconuts have actually been proven to BUILD SOIL and REGENERATE ECOSYSTEMS – Why, because they are like massive straws – sucking up nutrients and water from often desert like lands and making up to 90% of what they pull up available for other plants. Palms need VERY little water or nutrients to thrive! This is a staple that you can be proud to have in your pantry and can be happy to use in your cooking!
