What is Nutiva Organic Coconut Sugar?
Our Organic Coconut Sugar is made from the sap that comes from coconut palms, much like maple sugar and maple syrup is made from the sap of the maple tree. The sap is boiled at about 212°F, which is about 100°C, to make Organic Coconut Sugar. It is not raw. Our Organic Coconut Sugar has a mild molasses-like color and taste to it The palm trees used to make coconut sugar are usually more than 50 years old. It is more sustainable to use these trees for sap production, rather than just cutting them down and replacing them with new trees, and gives the farmer a better return on their investment.
