Organic Coconut Sugar Granulated Coconut Nectar by Madhava Natural Sweeteners

Madhava Natural Sweeteners - Organic Coconut Sugar Granulated Coconut Nectar - 16 oz. (454 g)

Madhava Natural Sweeteners Organic Coconut Sugar is an unrefined sweetener produced from the flower buds of the coconut tree. Madhava's Coconut Sugar is grown sustainably in Indonesia and is an all-natural alternative to processed sugar and artificial sweeteners. Madhava Coconut Sugar has a caramelized maple flavor and can replace light or brown sugar in recipes.

Coconut Sugar: Sustainably Grown and Happily Harvested
Madhava's Coconut Sugars are organic, unrefined sweeteners made from coconut tree buds. The coconut palm is ideal for sugar production, as the trees are sustainably grown and harvested without causing deforestation. Coconut palm trees produce 50-75% more sugar per acre than sugar cane, and use 1/5 the resources.

Nutrition Rich
From a health and wellness perspective, Organic Coconut Sugar has a nutritional content far richer than cane or beet sugar. Naturally occurring nutrients include magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, B vitamins and amino acids (including glutamine). In addition, Madhava Coconut Sugar is organic, gluten free, vegan, kosher, and GMO free.

About Madhava Natural Sweeteners
Sweeten up your life (the all-natural way!)
Madhava Natural Sweeteners is dedicated to providing natural and healthier alternatives to highly processed, refined sugars and artificial sweeteners. They currently offer three product lines for your sweetening needs: Organic Agave Nectar, Organic Coconut Sugar and Pure Honey.

Born of Honey
Founded in 1973 in Boulder - the birthplace of the natural foods industry - Madhava Natural Sweeteners is a true legacy natural foods brand, and is a company unlike any other. Madhava is a Sanskrit word meaning "Born of Honey" or "Born of Light" which is a derivation of the Sanskrit word madhu meaning "sweet." They believe it is the perfect name for a true, natural foods company born out of the simple love for the sweet life!

How It All Began
With the help of some food-loving "hippie" friends, Madhava Founder Bart Utley purchased a small, but scenic farm with a 100-year-old farmhouse, southeast of Longmont, Colorado in 1973. Eager to get started, he moved right in and began business. Resourceful and conscientious, the entire place was built from salvaged and recycled materials. The farm and beekeeping operations were run by Bart Utley, and honey was purchased from local beekeepers.

Busy As A...Well, You Know
In 1976, Craig Gerbore was hired and ran it as a one-man operation, until just recently. And although he is no longer involved in day-to-day beekeeping operations, Craig is still involved in steering, guiding and advising Madhava Natural Sweeteners.

Modern-Day Madhava
Today, Madhava Natural Sweeteners is still privately owned and operated in the foothills of Colorado. And even though they've grown considerably since their humble beginnings, Madhava is still a grassroots company at heart. They continue to buy from small, family-owned beekeepers, and supply their all-natural sweeteners to their terrific customers one jar at a time. Madhava: still dedicated to bringing you the highest quality natural sweeteners on the planet!

Suggested Use

1:1 Replacement. Use 1 tsp. to 1 tsp. of sugar.

Ideal for sauces, hot cereals, baked goods or sprinkled over fruit or toast.

Warnings

A little sweetness is good for everyone, but all sweeteners should be used in moderation since they add calories without significant nutrition. When choosing a sweetener, look for ones that are less refined, natural, organic and sustainable. You'll discover there are many options from plant sources around the world.

    Good price. Great flavor. Our favorite way to make chocolate milk: 1 T. coconut sugar, 1 T. raw cocoa dissolved in a small amount of warm water and about 12 oz. milk added and stir well.

    Can you believe I only been using this for ginger tea. Ginger and this coconut sugar just taste great together. One star is missing because the sugar came clumped and hard. I shake the container to loosen the sugar up.

    This product can be substituted for white sugar in every way and does not spike your blood sugar. It is a way healthier way to go in place of a sugar substitute!!
