Coconut Sugar

BioBalance



  • BioBalance Organic Coconut Sugar is a naturally low-GI cane sugar alternative produced from tropical coconut palm blossoms. Paired with its rich, lovely flavour, it is packed full of health benefits. Coconut Sugar is an unrefined, unfiltered, unbleached, preservative-free wholefood that is rich in magnesium, zinc, iron and potassium. Sustainably harvested in Indonensia using traditional methods, it remains in a raw unheated state preserving its rich mineral profile.

    Coconut palms produce an average of 50-75% more sugar per acre than sugar cane, and use less than 1/5th of the nutrients for that production, leading to Coconut Sugar's reputation as the most sustainable sweetener in the world. Our Coconut Sugar is fairly sourced from family farmers in Indonesia, thus helping to provide them with a valuable source of income in local communities. 

    Coconut Sugar is low on the Glycemic Index with a GI rating of 35, which is beneficial for weight management and people with diabetes. In comparison, most commercial honeys are GI 55+ and cane sugars are GI 68. Low GI allows for a slow release of energy, efficiently fueling your day-to-day activities and avoiding the highs and lows associated with most commercial sugars. Many people with an intolerance for Fructose have also found Coconut Sugar to be beneficial since it is primarily Sucrose based.

  • Coconut sugar is slightly less sweet than cane sugar, but has a richer, caramel-like flavour. To substitute in place of cane sugar, we recommend using 25% more per cup (e.g. 1 cup of cane sugar = 1 1/4 cup of coconut sugar).

    It is brilliant for baking, cakes, fruit crumbles, and savoury cooking, and makes a delicious healthy replacement for regular white cane sugar in tea, coffee, and other hot drinks.

  • Biobalance New Zealand LogoBioBalance is the child of the Butler family, whose 30 years worth of experience with natural products and deep respect for the New Zealand environment has informed their line of effective and affordable organic supplements.

    Not only do they draw their inspiration from their South Island community, they also often draw their ingredients from this area too and, when products are not able to be locally sourced, are only acquired from the highest standard international organic farmers. Their range reflects this, so local superfoods take their place alongside globally renowned superfoods.
