Coconut Magic Coconut Nectar
Coconut nectar is generating a lot of interest in the market today. Raw foodies are using it to replace agave in their sweet treats, healthy chef's are using it in their baking, and many families are using it as a healthy substitute for refined sugar.
Why use coconut nectar? Because not only is coconut nectar incredibly delicious. It is a low GI, low fructose natural sweetener. It is a 100% whole food derived from the sap collected from the coconut tree blossom. Nothing has been added.
Certified organic coconut nectar, is naturally sweet and highly nutritious. Our coconut nectar comes from the coconut trees, derived from the liquid sap of the coconut flowers. It is a very low GI (35) liquid sweetener that naturally contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other nutrients.
Natural coconut flower sap contains 1.5% fructose when collected from the blossoms. As the water is removed from the sap, the fructose content of the final liquid only reaches about 10%. In comparison to other sweeteners, such as honey, sugar and agave, this makes coconut nectar a low fructose sweetener.
Coconut nectar is a sucrose based sweetener and thus a healthy alternative for people with fructose sensitivities.
It can be used as a natural sweetener in tea, coffee, baking recipes, in cooking, as a syrup over pancakes, toast or ice cream, in raw food desserts, in smoothies and in juices. It works in any recipe just like honey, agave syrup, maple syrup or sugar.
Coconut Nectar is recommended as being suitable for people with diabetes (type 1 and 2) because of its low Glycemic Index (GI), that has benefits for weight control and improving glucose lipid levels.
Coconut Nectar provides slow release energy that wont cause high and low energy slumps like other sweeteners such as sugar do.
