Despite its name, coconut sugar is not derived from the coconut. The basic material of coconut sugar, the sweet coconut flower nectar, is obtained from the tapped flower of the coconut palm.Within a few hours after the harvest, the sap is processed into NUSWEET coconut sugar by hand under the application of a wooden fire. Within this drying process, the typical granular structure develops. As a result of this gentle measure, valuable ingredients are preserved and NUSWEET coconut sugar becomes the pure, vegan and natural product customers love. No wonder it has the green EU label for certified organic farming.
