Coconut Sugar Crystals

What is Coconut Sugar?

Coconut sugar comes from the sap of the coconut palm tree, not from coconuts. It looks similar to brown sugar and has a strong caramel taste and is produced in the Philippines and other parts of southeast Asia. Harvesters tap coconut palm sap by cutting into the tree’s flower-bud stem to access its nectar. The sap is then mixed with water, boiled into a syrup, and dried in order for the mixture to crystallize. Once this process is complete, the dried crystals are broken down into a granule consistency.
