Botanical Name: Cocos Nucifera
Low GI natural sweetener from the coconut tree blossom - ACO Certified
A genuine delicacy, this natural low GI sweetener is obtained from the nectar of the coconut palm blossom of both from Sri Lanka and Indonesia. The Glycemic Index (GI) of coconut nectar is 35. Producers climb on each individual tree and "tap" the flowers to recollect their nectar twice a day. Coconut palm trees benefit the ecosystem by restoring damaged soil and requiring very little water. An average tall coconut tree produces 3 to 4.5 litters of fresh nectar per day. This delicious nectar is a great alternative sweetener for persons sensitive to fructuose since the nectar is mostly composed of sucrose and it is rich in vitamins and minerals.
