A Nutritious Alternative to Refined Sugars
At 15 calories per one-teaspoon serving, Coconut Sugar has equivalent calories to both refined white sugar (16 calories per one-teaspoon serving) and beet sugar (16 calories per one-teaspoon serving), and significantly fewer calories than high fructose corn syrup (53 calories per one-teaspoon serving). But unlike most other sugars, Coconut Sugar offers a rich nutritional content that includes magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, B vitamins, and amino acids (including glutamine). Coconut Sugar is also naturally free from allergens including gluten, is vegan, GMO-free, and Kosher certified.
A Sustainable Choice
Madhava Organic Blonde Coconut Sugar is sourced from sustainable organic producers in Indonesia. It is an organic, unrefined sweetener that is derived from the nectar of coconut palm tree blossoms, or buds. The nectar is boiled to evaporate the water and the remaining concentrated nectar is crystallized into sugar. Coconut palms produce an average of 50 to 75 percent more sugar per acre than sugar cane and use one-fifth of the natural resources. Coconut Palm trees can produce nectar and fruit for decades, making it a sustainably harvested crop that does not contribute to deforestation. Coconut palms are not genetically modified like the majority of conventional domestic sugar beets are.
