Certified organic coconut flower nectar, is naturally sweet and highly nutritious. Our coconut nectar comes from the coconut trees, derived from the liquid sap of the coconut flowers. It is a very low GI (35) liquid sweetener that naturally contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other nutrients.
Natural coconut flower sap contains 1.5% fructose when collected from the blossoms. As the water is removed from the sap, the fructose content of the final liquid only reaches about 10%. In comparison to other sweeteners, such as honey, sugar and agave, this makes coconut nectar a low fructose sweetener.
Coconut nectar is a sucrose based sweetener and thus a healthy alternative for people with fructose sensitivities.
