Discover Coconut Sugar


A Sweet Golden Gift of the Tropics

Working collectively with local Indonesian farmers, our farmers delicately “tap” the unopened flower buds of coconut palm trees oozing with fragrant coconut nectar. Tapping the trees, a method similar to collecting maple syrup, releases nectar that is already inherently sweet, requiring minimal processing unlike conventional syrups. When our coconut trees have reached peak maturity, only then are they tapped for luscious syrup. Viva Naturals processes our sap immediately upon collection, obtaining a better quality sugar and decadently sweet flavor. Moisture content is reduced by evaporating water, which concentrates sugars until an optimal level of sweetness is achieved. Relish in the wholesomeness of our delectable golden crystals, sure to sweeten up all your favorite recipes

What is Coconut Sugar? - Unlike table sugar, coconut sugar is unrefined, maintaining all the nutritional elements that are normally destroyed during industrial processing. Aesthetically it is comparable to brown and cane sugar, with no comparison in quality and taste. The subtle, yet delectable caramel flavor of coconut sugar offers a unique variation from common household sweeteners, serving as an ideal replacement to refined white sugar spoon-for-spoon, cup-for-cup.

Low-Glycemic - Coconut Sugar is a low-glycemic sweetener that has been shown to support healthy blood sugar balance. A study published by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute compared the glycemic indexes of both coconut sugar and table sugar on a scale of 100, indicating a value of 35 and 60, respectively. Viva Naturals Organic Coconut Sugar is a one-to-one ratio with table sugar, helping you to achieve the same sweetness without the corresponding sugar spike.

Unrefined - Because coconut sugar is unrefined, it maintains essential nutrients like calcium, potassium, iron and zinc. A study published by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute indicated that coconut sugar had roughly double of the amount of iron compared to ordinary table sugar in a 100g serving. Iron is vital for red blood cell formation, improving energy levels, brain function and muscle health.

Paleo Sweetener - Paleo sweeteners consist of sugars that are found in nature, which remain unaltered and unrefined. Our coconut sugar will help satisfy your sweet tooth without any guilty consequence.

Sustainably Grown and Harvested - According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), coconut sugar is one of the most sustainably harvested sweeteners in the world. Coconut palms require very little water and produce up to 75% more sugar than sugar cane, while using up to 20% less soil nutrients and water. Additionally, research conducted at the Davao Research Center in the Philippines reported that coconut palms are in fact able to produce both coconuts and coconut sugar, despite the controversy.


How We're Different


To produce Viva Naturals’ Organic Coconut Sugar, local farmers “tap” the unopened flowers of coconut palm trees, oozing with sweet coconut nectar. Prior to heating, the sap is poured through a strainer, ensuring all waste matter is removed. Viva Naturals processes the sap immediately after collection, obtaining a better quality sugar and sweet flavor. The sap then undergoes a reduction process under heat, evaporating unwanted moisture, leaving you with pure, granulated organic coconut sugar.

Ways to Enjoy



Paleo Caramel Sauce:


Traditionally, caramel sauces are made with heavy butter and refined sugar. Why not develop an equally rich and sweet caramel sauce without the unwanted sugar spike and unhealthy fats? To make a healthy caramel sauce, bring ¼ cup of water and ½ cup of Viva Naturals Organic Coconut Sugar to boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Add one cup of full fat coconut milk, one teaspoon of vanilla extract and a pinch of salt, continuously stirring to keep the mixture from burning. Remove from heat once the mixture has thickened and is golden in color.

 


 


 


 



Beverages:


Coconut sugar is equally as granular as everyday sweeteners and dissolves easily in all of your favorite beverages. To make healthy hot chocolate, add our coconut sugar to coffee, tea, smoothies or lemonade. For an alternative hot cacao drink that is similar in creaminess and flavor, simply place one cup of unsweetened almond milk, two teaspoons Viva Naturals Organic Cacao Powder, two tablespoons agave, maple syrup or honey and one teaspoon of organic almond butter in a small saucepan and heat gently. Keep whisking until all the ingredients are incorporated and it reaches almost boiling point. Remove from heat and serve. Serves one.


 


 


Baked Goods:


Coconut Sugar blends seamlessly into all of your favorite baking recipes, adding a delectable caramel taste and perfect texture every time. Make low-glycemic cookies, muffins, brownies, pies, puddings, cakes and more. For delicious homemade brownies, preheat your oven to 350°F. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk 4 large eggs, one cup of Viva Naturals Organic Cacao Powder, one cup of Viva Naturals Organic Coconut Sugar, ¼ cup Viva Naturals Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, two tablespoons of almond or coconut milk, two teaspoons of vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. Pour the mixture onto a parchment paper lined baking pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Allow the brownies to cool before serving.


 


 


Sauces and Dressings:


Unlike the majority of condiments that are loaded with refined sugars or high fructose syrups, coconut sugar lends a similar level of sweetness without spiking blood sugar levels. Substitute Viva Naturals Organic Coconut Sugar for refined sugar, brown sugar and processed sweeteners in barbeque sauces, teriyaki sauces and dressings for its subtle sweetness and heavenly taste. For a healthier teriyaki sauce, simply mix ¼ cup rice vinegar, ¼ cup coconut aminos (or reduced-sodium soy sauce), one tablespoon of sesame oil, three tablespoons of Viva Naturals Organic Coconut Sugar, two minced cloves of garlic and chili pepper to taste. Whisk in a small bowl until well combined.
