Our producers make sure that the fresh coconut blossom sap is extracted and processed at least 4 to 5 times a day, which means an extra workload and more effort for our farmers. During harvest it is often the case that the sap is extracted only once or twice a day and processed in the evening or the next day (mostly Indonesian and Thai sugar). Coconut blossom juice starts to ferment after 5 hours at the most. As a consequence these manufacturers have to use additives and other means to inhibit fermentation. Thus they cut back on the workload but also on quality. So beware of cheap coconut blossom sugar. This sweet gold with its minerals, low glycemic index and its delicate flavor just has its worth.
because it tastes so much better and still contains less fructose, because it is the most sustainable sugar, because it is not refined (see seventh point) and because it naturally contains minerals, such as potassium (alkaline), selenium and iron that remain unchanged.

Regular household sugar consists of 100% sucrose. Sucrose is a disaccharide that our body has to break down in two monosaccharides so it can be transported into our blood. Coconut blossom sugar consists of 88% sucrose and additionally contains protein, dietary fibers and potassium.
Coconut blossom sugar doesn´t cause your blood glucose to rise as much or as quickly as regular household sugar. It holds your blood sugar level at a somewhat more constant level over a longer period of time, which prevents you from sudden listlessness and cravings.
The coconut tree remains and usually lives up to 100 years. During the harvest of the blossom sap it suffers no damage whatsoever. The blossom from which the coconut normally grows is being cut and the precious juice is extracted high in the treetop. Blossoms that were cut back completely grow back within 6-8 weeks thus allowing a regular, natural and gentle harvest.
There are no classic plantations or farms as such which would require a lot of cultivation, fertilization and use of pesticides.
