Coco Natura, the original coconut sweetener, is 100% natural and free from additives and artificial flavorings. It is a nutrient-rich, high-value food product derived from the fresh sap of organically grown coconut trees. The sweet juice is extracted when the budding flower is just about to grow – not from the coconut fruit or tree trunk. The result is a rich, caramel-like flavour. In addition to its wonderful taste, it is packed with vitamins (particularly B vitamins), amino acids and minerals. Coco Natura is known for its low glycemic index (GI) of 35 (good news for diabetics, and the rest of us too!).
Coco Natura serves as a healthier alternative, replacing sugar in coffee, tea, and other beverages. It is also used as a balancing agent and flavour enhancer for cakes, pastries, and even curries and robust sauces. Many patisseries will find Coco Natura’s rich caramel taste and distinctive aroma perfect for their concoctions.
Compared to sugarcane-based sweeteners, Coco Natura lives up to its claim of being the natural way to sweeten people’s lives! A comparative analysis made by the Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA) Plant Tissue Analysis Laboratory reveals that coconut sugar contains more amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, sodium, chlorine, sulfur, boron, zinc, and copper compared to refined cane or brown sugar. This makes coconut sugar not only delicious, but also the more nutritious and therefore smarter choice.
