Nui Organic Coconut Sugar
Nui Organic Coconut sugar is low GI
Nui Coconut Sugar | Healthier toffee flavoured sweetener for everyone
Nui Organic Coconut sugar is 100% sap from the coconut tree blossoms. Not mixed with cane sugar or anything else for that matter.
The Coconut tree sap (from the blossoms of the coconut tree blooms) is low on the GI index. It has a low GI (Glycemic Index) of 35 (honey GI = 50, white sugar GI = 65 ), so it’s great for diabetics (in moderation) and those concerned with weight loss.
Coconut sugar produces a slow energy release, which sustains the human body through your daily activities without regular sugar “highs” and “lows.”
Coconut sugar has a nutritional content far richer than other commercially available sweeteners.
The organic coconut sugar from Fiji is especially high in Potassium, Magnesium, Zinc and Iron and is a natural source of the vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and C.
* Please note that some palm sugar on the market, in particular coconut palm sugar from Thailand, is also mixed with cane sugar and other malt-based ingredients…
Nui only use PURE coconut sugar from Fiji.
- No cane sugar added.
- No chemical inputs.
- Just pure, unadulterated palm sugar made from 100% coconut nectar from Coco Nucifera.
Coconut sugar is gluten free
Have you ever seen a child with Downs Syndrome at a party, who is trying to avoid gluten by eating jelly beans? (It’s quite common for them to eat a lot of jelly beans while out at children’s birthday parties, because other children are eating foods that may add to the negative behavioural patterns of a Downs Syndrome child.
So they eat Jelly beans, which are lollies made with refined white sugar, another gluten free ingredient.
Gluten free snacks made with coconut sugar would also be gluten free, toffee flavoured, and low on GI.
Coconut sugar is high in minerals and amino acids like Glutamic Acid. Glutamic Acid is important in the body’s metabolism and as a neuro transmitter.
Coconut sugar appears like brown sugar, and has a rich, toffee-like flavour. We love it sprinkled on hot porridge. Simply delicious!

How do you use this for baking?
It just so happens that Sally Fallon wrote a nice fudge recipe. She is author of Nourishing Traditions, a book we (the Smith family) have at home. Well, I found this same recipe, with some adaptions on the internet. Kimi Harris, of http://www.thenourishinggourmet.com adapted the recipe, and I’ll give you a taste of the recipe here.
Firstly let’s look at what allergies this fudge recipe may set off.
- It has cocoa powder. So that might be a problem for some.
- It is low GI
- Has no soy products (just cocoa powder is not chocolate, which may have soy ingredients in it).
- It is gluten free
