100% organic coconut sap sugar is made in two steps:
1. The fair trade farmer commences by ‘tapping” the tree which involves making a cut on the spadix of the coconut. A spadix contains thousands of flowerets which produce the sap.
Once the tree is tapped, the coconut sap starts to flow from the cut and is collected typically in sterilised containers.
2. The freshly collected sap is then transferred in woks and slowly boiled under a medium heat. Stir vigorously. The sap must be unfermented and is about 80% water, 15% sugar, and 5% other minerals so heat is used to evaporate the water resulting in the natural coconut sap sugar we all enjoy.
The process is all-natural, no preservatives added.
