We redefine the
art of sweetening
your specialty coffee...
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. Our partner, a social enterprise, works with independent farmers who harvest the nectar from pesticide-free and certified organically-grown trees (Cocos Nucifera) in Southern Mindanao. The farmers' 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. 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
Foods with a low-glycemic index help to slow food digestion and prevent an insulin spike. Saganà is a versatile sweetener to be used as a 1:1 substitute to refined and artificial sugars. With its subtle hint of caramel, it enriches the flavor of coffee, tea, classic cocktails and everyday baking and cooking.
Are you consuming too much sugar?
We consume highly refined and artificial sugars in most of what we eat and drink!
6 teaspoons max
The World Health Organization recommends 5-6 teaspoons of sugar per day. A cup of coffee sold in cafés contains up to 25 teaspoons of sugar.
This rising number concerns Switzerland alone. Excessive sugar intake causes obesity-related diseases in children and adults worldwide.
1% versus 82%
Did you know that natural and healthy sweeteners hold a mere 1% share of the global sweetener market, while refined sugars dominate by a whopping 82%?
