     What is coconut sweetener ?

     

     

  • from coconut blossom nectar to sweetener

    Eight (8) liters of fresh, nutritive coconut blossom nectar produces 1 kilo of 100% pure Saganà

    100% natural and authentic

    No anti-fermenting and bleaching agents, no preservatives, no artificial colors and flavors. Together with our partner social enterprise in Southern Mindanao, we work with partner- tappers who carefully harvest the nectar from pesticide-free and certified organically-grown trees derived from the Cocos Nucifera variety. These tappers skillfully climb the trees several times a day to bind and cut the flower spathes. Precious nectar drips from these spathes into containers for the next three to five weeks!

    nutritious and eco-friendly

    Saganà's fresh nectar benefits from a neutral PH balance. It is boiled under minimal heat using biomass until its water content evaporates. It is then sifted and air dried. Thanks to these artisanal methods, the nectar's inherent minerals and vitamins remain intact. Would you believe, tapping the tree makes it more fertile ? Coconut trees are also excellent carbon sinks and soil builders with many uses from the roots, fruits to the leaves.

    Low in glycemic index and potassium-rich

    Minimally-processed foods assist in digesting food more slowly, and in effect, help control the blood pressure. Also SAGANÀ is potassium-rich (52% NRV ) and low in fructose ( 2.3%) according to our food analyses. A versatile natural sweetener, it is the perfect 1:1 sugar substitute for sweetening, baking and cooking. How can anyone resist its subtle hint of caramel ? When it enriches the flavor of goumet coffee, fine tea and classic cocktails...
