Coconut Sugar

Coconut flower sugar is also known as coconut palm sugar.

After a decantation period in which part of the water in the emulsion evaporates then syrup solidifies and is moulded into pats. They are then grated to obtain crystals. No refining process or other industrial processes or chemical components added. For this reason it keeps intact its natural brown color and all the nutrients of which it is composed. Often used as a substitute for caster sugar because it has a lower glycemic index. It can be used for all preparations including traditional refined or raw sugar, as it has a very similar sweetening power. Compared to traditional sugar it has a more intense and fruity taste, with an aftertaste reminiscent of caramel. It should not be confused with palm sugar, which is obtained from another plant.
