The Secret Behind Coconut Secret
Coconut sugar is made by collecting the "sap" from coconut tree blossoms. There are specific species of coconut trees that can be "tapped" (much like maple trees are tapped in the maple syrup making process). Bamboo containers are used to collect the sap of the coconut trees right at the blossoms. When the coconut trees are tapped, they produce a continuously flowing "inflorescence" (juice or sap) that exudes from the coconut blossoms. This naturally sweet sap is very low glycemic (GI of only 35, with only 16% sucrose), raw and enzymatically alive, is an abundant source of 17 amino acids, minerals, vitamin C, broad-spectrum B vitamins, and has a nearly neutral pH.
It is then minimally evaporated for less than an hour (only to remove excess moisture), at low temperatures, never exceeding an average summer day in the tropics. The end result is a syrup-like product known as coconut "toddy", which is then further evaporated into crystal form to produce the coconut sugar, which is further used to make all these delicious coconut products list below.
The coconut trees are grown in the second largest island in the Philippines. 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.
