The Coconut Secret Story... When both our parents suddenly became diabetic, my brother and I were deeply inspired to search the world for pure, raw, truly delicious, low glycemic products. We were rewarded and blessed beyond our expectations, in our discovery of the many traditional products made from the wondrous coconut tree. You are now holding in your hands, the fruits of our long journey. It is our joy to be able to share with you the gifts of these exceptional ingredients. Leslie and Randy Health Secrets of Coconut Crystals When the coconut tree is tapped, it produces a nutrient-rich "sap" that exudes from the coconut blossoms. This sap is very low glycemic (GI of only 35), is an abundant source of minerals, 17 amino acids, vitamin C, broad-spectrum B vitamins, and has a nearly neutral pH. Small batches ensure that our pure, low glycemic Coconut Crystals, made from this natural sap, is a raw, enzymatically alive product, low temperature evaporated only to remove excess moisture and allow for crystallization. By contrast, most brown cane sugar is boiled at temps up to 221 degrees F and is not a true brown sugar, because molasses is added back in after it has been refined into white sugar.
