About Coconut Secret

It all began in the Spring of 2008, with an overwhelming desire to create a low glycemic, gluten-free snack line that was truly safe for diabetics, using the purest, most organic, least processed ingredients we could find. A few years earlier both our parents were diagnosed with Diabetes, and we quickly became appalled at what was being passed off as “diabetic-safe” foods, especially in the snack category.  We discovered, that oftentimes, sugar is disguised on labels in a myriad of creative technical terms.  Newly invented imitation sugar substitutes are used as sweetening agents.  Sugar in other forms are frequently added such as fruit juice concentrates, honey (which when heated and processed for use in manufacturing, essentially becomes sugar syrup), and the most infamous of all, “high fructose corn syrup” (HFCS), now widely known as one of the primary contributors to Diabetes and Obesity.  None of these sweeteners are truly “safe”, no matter how they are purported to breakdown in the body. Coconut sugar is made by collecting the “sap” from coconut tree blossoms. Who knew?! There are specific species of coconut trees that can be “tapped” (much like maple trees are tapped in the maple syrup making process).  Bamboo containers are used to collect the sap of the coconut trees right at the blossoms.  When the coconut trees are tapped, they produce a continuously flowing “inflorescence” (juice or sap) that exudes from the coconut blossoms.  This naturally sweet sap is very low glycemic (GI of only 35, with only 16% sucrose), raw and enzymatically alive, is an abundant source of 17 amino acids, minerals, vitamin C, broad-spectrum B vitamins, and has a nearly neutral pH.  It is then minimally evaporated for less than an hour (only to remove excess moisture), at low temperatures, never exceeding an average summer day in the tropics.  The end result is a syrup-like product known as coconut “toddy”, which is then further evaporated into crystal form to produce the coconut sugar.

    Health Benefits of Coconut Tree Products

    Helps Prevent Obesity by speeding up metabolism, providing an immediate source of energy with fewer calories than other fats. People who consistently use coconut products, report a stronger ability to go without eating for several hours with no affects of hypoglycemia.

    Improves Heart Health by providing healthy short chain and medium chain fatty acids (MCFA) that are essential to good health. Close to 98% of all fatty acids consumed are composed of long-chain fatty acids (LCFA), which are very different from MCFA that have no negative effect on cholesterol ratios and help to lower the risk of atherosclerosis and protect against heart disease. Studies have shown that populations in Polynesia and Sri Lanka, where coconuts are a dietary staple, do not suffer from high serum cholesterol or heart disease. Unlike other fats, the unique properties of coconut also contain a large amount of lauric acid, which is the predominant fatty acid found in mother's milk.

    High in Dietary Fiber rivaling other fiber sources such as psyllium, wheat bran, oat bran, and rice bran. Coconut supplies an impressive 61% dietary fiber! Foods contain two types of carbohydrates – digestible and non-digestible. Digestible carbohydrates (soluble fiber) consists of starch and sugar and promote calories. Non-digestible carbohydrates (insoluble fiber) contains NO calories. Since the body cannot digest the dietary fiber in coconut, no calories are derived from it and it has no effect on blood sugar.

    Low Glycemic Index (GI) measures how fast available carbohydrates in food raise blood sugar levels. Coconut fiber slows down the release of glucose, therefore requiring less insulin to utilize the glucose and transport it into the cell where it is converted into energy. Coconut also assists in relieving stress on the pancreas and enzyme systems of the body, in turn, reducing the risks associated with Diabetes. Coconut Nectar and Crystals have a very low GI of only 35 (compared to honey with a GI of 55-83, and sugar with a GI of 65-100.)

    Reduces Sweet Cravings and improves insulin secretion and utilization of blood glucose. The healthy fat in coconut slows down any rise in blood sugar and helps to reduce hypoglycemic cravings.

    Improves Digestion and many of the symptoms and inflammatory conditions associated with digestive and bowel disorders, by supporting absorption of other nutrients including vitamins, minerals, and amino acids while also providing beneficial dietary fiber.

    Quick Energy Boost that provides a super nutritious source of extra energy. Coconut is utilized by the body to actually produce energy, rather than to store it as body fat. It supports improved endurance during physical and athletic performance. As well, it promotes healthy thyroid function and helps to relieve the symptoms of chronic fatigue.

    Coconut helps to aid and support overall Immune System functions.

      It think it's amazing that someone figured out a way to make a sugar replacement out of coconuts! Tastes like maple syrup. Yummy!

      Its delicious but I disagree with the previous reviewer, it taste like brown sugar or date sugar it doesnt taste like maple syrup. I love maple syrup and buy maple syrup dehydrated down to maple sugar. Anyway, coconut sap sugar is about 30% less calories than cane sugar and low glycemic so I will start buying it regularly.

      Try mixing it w/ Coconut Secret's "Raw Coconut Flour" (add a little water) to form a paste. If you have a dehydrator you can make chip from the paste. The "Thinner the paste the "Less" time is needed to finish them. NOTE: Cau. Be Very Careful to eat small amounts of the paste

      Can anything be better than sugar? Well this is! I've used it for lemonade, hot chocolate, oat meal. I haven't baked with it yet but I plan to see how it holds up. I wish it was more in the container for less money.

      I replace the sugar in my baking recipes with half Coconut Secret and half KAL Pure Stevia Extract Powder. Coconut Secret is a bit expensive so combining it with Stevia Powder is economical and tastes great. Coconut Secret is a terrific sugar substitute.

      Excellent for my blood sugar concerns. I go from low to high blood sugar with just the slighest bit of the wrong food. I have not had to take my blood sugar in several years due to fact that I eat healthy and eat in moderation. I am 67 and have my insulin level under control with diet and right foods.
