As children we all love sugar, as adults generally we still love it…but all want to cut it out! As the unhealthy consequences of consuming too much sugar and high fructose products are increasingly in the public eye, people are looking for alternatives.
Welcome to the shops and shelves…Bali Nutra Coconut Syrup! This sweetener taken directly from the coconut palm tree is both more nutritious, and lower on the glycemic index than sugar.
Unlike table sugar that undergoes a heavy refining process, our syrup is 100% natural and sustainably sourced via a two step process:
1. It is harvested on average twice a day by local farmers on the Island of Bali, who climb to the top of Coconut Tress and collect the sap. The Coconut Sap is funnelled using a coconut leaf into a dried coconut shell.
2. The sap is placed under a controlled heat and temperature until most of the water has evaporated, leaving a unique taste, with no added ingredients but retaining all natural qualities.
Natural qualities, what natural qualities?! Bali Nutra Coconut Syrup contains 17 amino acids and 10 minerals. The most notable are Calcium, Zinc, Iron and Potassium, including various fatty acids, antioxidants and polyphenols that all provide additional health benefits. The presence of the fiber called Inulin, causes slow glucose absorption and is the reason why coconut syrup has a very low glycemic index of +35. This fiber also also has prebiotic effects, helping to feed the healthy bacteria and digest the food you eat.
