Coconut Magic Organic Coconut Nectar is naturally sweet and delicious, low GI (35), low fructose natural sweetener.
Coconut Magic organic coconut product has taken the health world by storm as a natural, nutritious alternative to use as a sweetener for both raw and cooked recipes. We have nicknamed this nectar "joy in a jar". Use as an alternative to honey or maple syrup in a range of dishes.
Traditionally, the coconut nectar (and coconut sugar) is used in Thai cuisine as a sweetener. The coconut nectar farm is separate from other farms producing coconut products and make up a very small percentage of farming in Thailand. The coconut farmers that produce the nectar do not expect to sell the coconut for the oil or the water. It is a choice made by the farmer to produce the nectar and sugar from the young, or the mature coconut. The terms "coconut sugar, and coconut palm sugar" can be used interchangeably.
Uses: Coconut flower nectar can be used as a natural sweetener in tea, coffee, baking, or (our personal favourite), as a syrup over pancakes, toast or ice cream. It is commonly used in preparing raw food desserts, in smoothies and in juices. It works in any recipe as a replacement to honey, agave syrup, maple syrup or sugar.
Health Benefits: Coconut Nectar is recommended as being an organic coconut product suitable for people with diabetes (both type 1 and 2) because of its low Glycemic Index (GI). This also means it assists in weight control and improving glucose lipid levels.
Coconut Nectar provides slow release energy that wont cause high and low energy slumps like other sweeteners, such as sugar, do.
Coconut Nectar is high in mineral content. It is a rich source of potassium, magnesium, zinc and iron. It also contains Vitamin B1, B2, B3 and B6.
Compared to brown sugar, coconut nectar has twice the iron, four times the magnesium and over ten times the zinc content.
Coconut Magic coconut nectar is completely natural, unrefined, unfiltered and preservative free.
