Our amber nectar is 100% pure coconut flower blossom nectar, which means it's low glycemic and high nutrient.  We never mix our coconut nectar or sugar with cane sugar, so you can rest assured, your body is being treated as it should. I has never been heated above 118F / 46C. And the mild flavor makes it easy easting in anything.

Coconut palm nectar has a nutritional content far richer than all other commercially available sweeteners. It is especially high in Potassium, Magnesium, Zinc and Iron (similar to coconut water) and is a natural source of the vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and C.  It’s also very rich in other minerals and enzymes which aid in the slow absorption into the bloodstream.

ENVIRONMENTAL ATTRIBUTES OF COCONUT PALM SWEETENERS

Tropical palms are an ecologically beneficial tree crop that grows in diverse, wildlife supportive agro-ecosystems, restore damaged soils and require very little water.  Coconut palms are considered the “Tree of Life” by many traditional communities throughout the world, as one tree can provide a multitude of usable goods, such as; roofing material, food, coconut water, building material and shade for crops.

Other key Eco-points:

  •   Reports by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the World Bank show that Coconut Palms and other nectar producing species of palms are likely the world’s most sustainable sweetener.  Why?
  •   Coconut Palms and other sugar producing tropical palms are nearly twice as productive per hectare as sugarcane and are a far more sustainable source of sweetener because they grow in diverse, wild-life supportive ecosystems as opposed to huge mono-crop plantings.
  •   Coconut Palms can grow in severely depleted soil (think of a sandy beach!) and use very little water; In fact, not only do they require such little maintenance, but they actually improve soil structure, fertility and water conservation, thereby allowing marginalized land to become lush jungle over time.Many traditional communities throughout the world consider coconut palms the “Tree of Life”, as they provide a variety of accessible products from which they earn their livelihoods.
  •   The production of SweetTree organic coconut sugar has the single highest potential for lifting these farmers into a better life while creating a net benefit to their surrounding environment.
  •   Coconut palm sugar is not produced from the same palm species as is used for the production of palm oil.
  •   Coconut palms produce an average of 50-75% more sugar per acre than sugar cane and use less than 1/5th the soil nutrients for that production.

FARMER PARTNERS

We work with over 6,000 farmers on the island of Java for our coconut palm sugar production and have been directly involved with the creation of farmer cooperatives, internal control systems and organic certificates for them and their product.

We oversee a number of small cooperative maintained sugarhouses and directly own and operate a processing facility for ensuring final quality assurance for all final coconut palm sugar products.  The sugarhouses are small commercial kitchens, allowing producers to continue the tradition of small batch coconut palm sugar production and at the same time have a product that is clean, free of any contamination, and consistently of the highest quality.

Other key community points:

  •   100% of the money from growing, harvesting and primary processing of this ingredient stays in the local communities and we work directly with international NGO’s in order to maintain transparent, socially equitable supply chains.
  •   Our sustainable supply chain manages direct producer programs in value addition education and practice, market access and small business/cooperative management.
  •   Through market access and production training, smallholder sugar-tappers have risen well above the poverty line and are able to earn an increase in personal income of close to 200% while maintaining a competitive market price as a cane sugar alternative!

Coconut palm sugar has the single highest potential for lifting these farmers into a better life while creating a net benefit to their surrounding environment.
