Beware of the smear campaign!

There is an article on the internet stating that there is a worldwide shortage of Coconut Oil, sometimes. Therefore the use of the Coconut Tree for making Coconut Sugar should be avoided, for plausible reasons given in the article.

This article is written in the USA, by someone who gets their Coconut Oil from the Philippines. We have seen photos of the wild trees, begging for the harvesting of nuts for oil, water, and other products, in the Philippines. The same could be said about Vanuatu, and many other Coconut Tree producing nations. It is true that it is very difficult to get Virgin Coconut Oil out of the Philippines, with many distributors suffering frustrating delays for oil.

But that is not the case in other regions. Fiji and Samoa have suffered great loss to their Coconut Trees, due to cyclone damage. We can’t get oil out of Fiji, but we can out of Samoa. It is growing back into production slowly but surely, and so is our supply. Therefore we believe that Coconut Tree production is not as fragile as it is being made out to be in that particular article.

For these reasons, we have reason to believe that whatever real or perceived present or future shortage there is of Coconut Trees, in the Philippines, may not necessarily apply to other parts of the world market for Coconut products.

    is the coconut sugar classed as “raw” ie not heated above approx 113f/42c?

    1. No. It requires simmering for a long time. It is a traditional food prepared in a traditional way, with a fire underneath.

      I hope that helps.

      P.S. I had a terrible cramp, and took a little on a teaspoon on my tongue. The cramp subsided somewhat straight away. (Tastier than even pink salt, any day!)

  3. I am trying to find an alternative to sugar as im not quite ready to give up my sweet tooth! I have tried stevia and found it horrid, is coconut sugar any better tasting? Just want to research before I buy as stevia was expensive and a waste of money

    1. Hi Renee,

      Thanks for getting in touch. We agree that Stevia has an unpleasant aftertaste which is hard to get used to. Coconut sugar is delightful. Has a lovely caramel-like flavour. We have just made a small sample pouch available here:

      The above website is our new shopping cart site, and we are about to link it up to The Coconut Oil Shop, but our members have already been using it.

      $6 includes the sample sugar and postage.

  4. […] This chocolate recipe has no sugar cane, and calls for a 1/4 of a cup of Agave. But you can use coconut sugar, or stevia, or even coconut nectar […]
