Coconut Sugar

Natava Superfoods

  • Our certified organic Coconut Sugar is a great tasting cane sugar alternative produced from tropical coconut palm blossoms. With a rich toffee-like flavour, it is unrefined, unfiltered, unbleached, preservative-free, and remains in a raw unheated state preserving its rich mineral profile.

    Coconut palms produce an average of 50-75% more sugar per acre than sugar cane, and use less than 1/5th of the nutrients for that production, leading to Coconut Sugar's reputation as the most sustainable sweetener in the world. Our Coconut Sugar is fairly sourced from family farmers in Indonesia, thus helping to provide them with viable livelihoods.

    Coconut Sugar is low on the Glycemic Index with a GI rating of 35, which is beneficial for weight management and people with diabetes. In comparison, most commercial honeys are GI 55+ and cane sugars are GI 68. Low GI allows for a slow release of energy, efficiently fueling your day-to-day activities and avoiding the highs and lows associated with most commercial sugars. Many people with an intolerance for Fructose have also found Coconut Sugar to be beneficial since it is primarily Sucrose based.
  • Coconut sugar is slightly less sweet than cane sugar, but has a richer, caramel-like flavour. To substitute in place of cane sugar, we recommend using 25% more per cup (e.g. 1 cup of cane sugar = 1 1/4 cup of coconut sugar).

    It is brilliant for baking, cakes, fruit crumbles, and savoury cooking, and makes a delicious healthy replacement for regular white cane sugar in tea, coffee, and other hot drinks.

  • "I tried out this coconut sugar as a replacement for regular brown and white sugar. I was worried it would taste like coconut, but it doesn't at all - tastes almost the same as brown sugar, is delicious. Perfect for baking and hot drinks."

    - Miriam Seddon (Auckland, New Zealand)

    "The best healthy substitute for sugar. I've been using this in all my baking recipes in place of regular sugar, and it's great. So good to know you can achieve the exact same results, but with a sweetener that's low GI, unprocessed, and actually good for you!"
