7seeds coconut palm sugar is derived from the blossoms of coconut trees. Coconut palm sugar is made by evaporating coconut nectar, which is taken from tropical coconut palms. Because of its extensive nutritional profile, it is an excellent alternative to cane sugar. It is high in potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, B vitamins and amino acids. In addition, it has a low-glycemic index (GI), and has a very pleasant sweet caramel-like aroma and flavour.
The Food and Agriculture Organization has reported that palm sweeteners are the most sustainable type of sweetener in the world. Coconut palms are more productive than sugar cane and can produce 50% to 75% more sugar per acre. Coconut palms can be tapped for 70+ years without damaging the tree or the ecosystem, as opposed to sugar cane, which can have a negative impact on the environment.
