More Info



Coconut Sugar has gained popularity as a health food especially among diabetics who can use coconut sugar as an alternative sweetener as it is considered safe for diabetics. Even some doctors are starting to sit up and take notice. 
Our sugar alternative to date has been Xylitol which is a great natural sugar; great for diabetics also and great for your teeth, however, coconut sugar is another natural source, derived from the flowers of the coconut tree. Coconut sugar looks and tastes like brown sugar, with a hint of caramel. It comes in crystal or granule form.
Every Parent’s Nightmare
It is every parent’s nightmare to have a child or children who are adversely affected by the intake of white refined sugar and end up climbing the walls through hyperactivity.  This is because refined white sugar gives an energy spike and then a low, whereas coconut sugar gives a balanced release of energy thereby avoiding the spike.  Coconut sugar is unfiltered, unbleached and preservative free, so now you can offer your children sweet options without all the worry that their blood sugar levels will go through the roof.
