Alpha Coconut Blossom Sugar

Alpha Low Glycemic Coconut Blossom Sugar Coconut blossom sugar has a better nutrient profile, amino acid profile, and sugar profile than either refined sugar or evaporated cane juice. We like coconut blossom sugar because it is a whole food, with a milder taste than evaporated cane juice or maple syrup. Coconut blossom sugar has the advantage of being a more sustainable sugar source than cane juice, producing more sugar per hectare with less agricultural input required.

Coconut Blossom Sugar is extracted from the flower of the coconut tree before it blooms. It is sometimes also known as coconut palm sugar, but that name may indicate the coconut sugar has been mixed with Palm sugar, which is a different product entirely. Always be sure to read the label.
