Also known as coconut palm sugar or coconut blossom sugar, coconut sugar is made from the sustainably harvested sap of freshly cut flower buds of coconut palm trees. It has been used as a traditional sweetener for thousands of years in South and Southeast Asia. With a slight hint of caramel, its flavor and texture are similar to that of brown sugar. It can be substituted cup for cup for sugar in any recipe. Works great for cookies, sweet breads, and sauces.

The shelf life of our fine sifted coconut sugar is dependent upon storage conditions and is highly variable. We recommend to store it under cool, dry conditions in a humidity-controlled environment. The industry standard for shelf life is 24 months from the date of manufacture when stored under recommended conditions. Due to the minimum processing of this product, it will naturally become sticky and clump. This does not diminish the quality of the product.
