When the coconut tree is tapped, it produces "sap" that exudes from the coconut blossoms. This sap is very low glycemic (GI of only 35).

Small batches ensure that our pure, low glycemic Coconut Crystals, made from this natural sap, is a raw, enzymatically alive product, briefly evaporated at low temperatures for 90 minutes (only to remove excess moisture and allow for crystallization), never exceeding an average summer day in the tropics. By contrast, most brown sugar is boiled at temperatures up to 221 degrees F. (the end product containing 93% sucrose, compared to sap crystals which is only 16% sucrose).

  • Grown without Chemicals, Pesticides, or Herbicides

Recipe Tips

The naturally sweet, earthy flavor of our Crystals is an ideal sweetener for use over cereals, in tea, and all your favorite dessert recipes! (Our delicious Coconut Crystals do not have a coconutty flavor. Each hand-made batch may vary slightly in flavor and color.)

Tapping the Sap

The principles of tapping the coconut tree blossoms for their sap, bears only minor resemblance to the practice of tapping maple trees for maple syrup production.  Containers used to collect the sap are made out of hollow bamboo tubes that are fastened onto the thick fleshy stems covered in small flowers (see photos).

The freshly gathered coconut tree sap is oyster white in color, has a nearly neutral pH, and is already inherently sweet tasting by nature.  Whereas, the sap from a maple tree (as well as the juice from an agave cactus) has very little readily available sweetness, and requires long heating times in order to produce the sweet syrup you purchase in the bottle.tap 2

When the coconut tree is tapped, it produces a highly nutrient-rich sap that exudes from the coconut blossoms. This sap is very low glycemic (GI of only 35), and contains a wide range of minerals, vitamin C, broad-spectrum B vitamins, 17 amino acids, and it has a nearly neutral pH.

Coconut tree sap produces a multitude of delicious products, including our Coconut Vinegar, Coconut Aminos Seasoning Sauce, Coconut Nectar, and Coconut Crystals, all made through raw methods of either aging the sap for up to 1 year, or evaporating it at low temperature after it is collected.

The most remarkable blessing about tapping a coconut tree, is that once it is tapped, it flows its sap continuously for the next 20 years.  From a sustainability viewpoint, the harvestable energy production from tapping coconut trees for their sap (which yields 5,000 liters per hectare), rather than allowing them to produce fruit, is 5-7 times higher per hectare than coconut oil production from mature coconuts.
