Making Coconut Sweetener

The production of IMC Organic Coconut Sugar is as fascinating as the myths surrounding the coconut plant itself. The sap, extracted from the buds of inflorescence where coconut flowers grow into fruit, undergoes careful tapping at IMC. This process encourages the tree to release sap without disrupting its natural production cycle and healthy growth. Through gentle heating, the sap’s moisture is reduced to form sugar granules. Importantly, all IMC Organic Coconut Sugar originates from natural sap directly extracted from coconut trees, ensuring the highest quality.

Similar to maple syrup, the coconut sap is a clear liquid that gets cooked into a brown toasty syrup without any form of additives throughout the entire process. It develops a caramel-like flavor, naturally full of vitamins and minerals. Additionally, coconut sweetener also contains a fiber called Inulin, which slows glucose absorption. This explains its low glycemic index property, making IMC Organic Coconut Sugar the perfect alternative with its clear health advantages over many other forms of sugar.
