Coconut Crystals, 12oz
This pure and simple cane sugar alternative is naturally low on the Glycemic Index (GI), which has benefits for weight control and improving glucose and lipid levels in people with diabetes (type 1 and type 2). Coconut Sugar is produced from the sweet juices of tropical coconut palm sugar blossoms. Traditional sugar farmers climb high into the canopy of swaying coconuts and harvest the sweet nectar by gently slicing the flower. Once collected, the nectars are kettle-boiled into a thick caramel and ground to a fine crystal. Coconut sugar has long been a staple in south East Asian culinary heritage and herbal medicine.
Mesquite Meal, 6oz
Our organic mesquite flour is a nutritious powder with a sweet, nutty flavor, suitable for use in baking or as a seasoning on food and in drinks. The flour is ground from the seed pods of the mesquite plant, also known as algorroba, a leguminous plant found in arid areas around the world. In desert areas of the Americas, mesquite seed pods have long been used as a food source by the indigenous peoples. Today, mesquite powder is proving to be a versatile food with a high nutritional and flavor value. Because mesquite flour is ground from the entire pod, including the seed, it is high in protein (11-17%). It is also rich in lysine, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc, and dietary fiber. Mesquite is also highly effective in balancing blood sugar. Because its sugar is in the form of fructose, which does not require insulin for metabolism, mesquite helps...
Lucuma, Powder, 5oz
The lucuma fruit tree or “La Lacuma” originally comes from the dry, subtropical region of the Peruvian Andean coastal valleys, although it now also grows in Ecuador and Chile at elevations between 1,000 to 2,400 meters. While the fresh fruit remains difficult to source outside of its local region, it is now readily available in dried powder form. The tree’s nutritious, round, orange-centered fruit is becoming well known for its sweetness, especially among raw food proponents. It also has especially high concentrations of calcium, phosphorus, beta-carotene, Vitamins C and B3, fiber, iron and other valuable nutrients. In terms of the Lacuma fruit’s sugar content, the percentage amount present in the dried pulp from mature Lacuma fruit is: 8.4% glucose, 4.7% fructose, 1.7% sucrose, and 0.06% inositol. In its raw powder form, Lacuma fruit can be used as a natural and nutritious sweetener, and it is an excellent flavoring for ice...
Coconut Nectar, 12oz
When the coconut tree is tapped, it produces a naturally sweet, nutrient-rich “sap” that exudes from the coconut blossoms. This sap is very low glycemic and contains 17 amino acids, minerals, vitamin C, broad-spectrum B vitamins, and has a nearly neutral pH. This natural sap is minimally evaporated at low temperatures (only to remove excess moisture and allow sap to thicken), never exceeding an average summer day in the tropics. Some agave syrups are hydrolyzed at temps up to 140 degrees F. for 36 hours, the end product containing 90% fructose, compared to sap nectar which is only 0.5% glucose, 1.5% fructose, 16% sucrose, and 82% inulin. Recipe Tips: The naturally sweet, mild flavor of our Nectar is an ideal sweetener for use on pancakes, over cereal, in tea, smoothies, and all your favorite dessert recipes! (Our delicious Coconut Nectar does not have a coconutty flavor.) Ingredients: Coconut Sap grown...
