Details

Organic Coconut Sugar is made from sap collected from freshly cut flower buds of coconut palm trees. Coconut sugar dissolves easily in liquids. Substitutes easily cup-for-cup for other sugars.

How is coconut sugar made?

Step One: Farmers tap the coconut flower buds to collect sap.

Step Two: The sap is heated to remove the moisture. This forms toddy. The toddy is stirred as it reduces.

Step Three: When the toddy crystalizes and it is almost solid, the toddy is ground with a coconut shell on a sifter. You now have coconut sugar!

Why Farm Coconut Sugar?

  • Because coconut sugar can be made with dwarf coconut palms, farmers can fit more trees per acre.

  • Dwarf coconut palms generate product quicker than full sized palms. Farmers can begin tapping dwarf palms for coconut sugar after only three years. Full sized palms start generating nuts 4~5 years after planting.

  • Farmers do not need to climb dwarf palms to harvest sap, which allows for an easier harvest.

  • Each palm can generate up to 132 lbs of sugar per year.

  • As opposed to full sized palms, farmers can tap dwarf palms for coconut sugar nearly all year. This provides a more stable work environment.

  • The processing of coconut sugar can be done on the farm or at a cooperative as opposed to a production plant. This helps impoverished communities grow economically and reduces unemployment because of a year-round, high profit, globally successful product.
