Coco Natura Sugar is derived from the fresh sap of the coconut tree’s flowers (not the tree trunk, like coconut palm sugar). This traditional process creates a nutritious organic sugar that is delicious in coffee, tea, and other beverages. Its subtle caramel taste is also perfect for cooking and baking. Use Coconut Sugar any way you would use other granulated sugars, on a 1:1 basis.

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.
Don’t settle for less nutritious sugars while on the go – Coco Natura™ is now portable (50 sachets/box)!
Tests conducted by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute and the Dept. of Science and Technology revealed that the glycemic index (GI) of coconut sugar is only at an astounding 35, much lower than that of cane sugar at 50.
The glycemic index (GI) value measures how rapidly a carbohydrate turns into glucose.
Some Examples of the Glycemic Index of Foods:
|Low GI||55 or less||most fruits and vegetables (except potatoes and watermelon), grainy breads, pasta, legumes/pulses, milk, yogurt, products extremely low in carbohydrates (some cheeses, nuts), fructose, cane sugar|
|Medium GI||56–69||whole wheat products, basmati rice, sweet potato, table sugar|
|High GI||70 and above||corn flakes, rice krispies, baked potatoes, watermelon, croissants, white bread, extruded breakfast cereals, most white rices (e.g. jasmine), straight glucose (100)|
Coco Natura: 35
Low GI foods help in the management of diabetes mellitus and have been shown to lower cholesterol. Coco Natura is the only sweetener that is Bureau of Food And Drugs (BFAD) approved and documented to be safe for both diabetics and non-diabetics. It is also useful for weight control and for the prevention of obesity. This breakthrough has the potential to make a major impact in the lives of millions of diabetics and health conscious people around the world.
