More about Biona Organic Coconut Palm Sugar, Unrefined

Biona Organic Coconut Palm Sugar is an ancient form of sugar which is gaining new popularity partly because of its low GI status. Coconut Palm Sugar (sometimes just called palm sugar) has a GI level of just 35. This low glycemic value means that it is beneficial to diabetics and people watching their weight. It is also low in fructose, even though it is taken from the sap of a coconut tree. The taste is described as something like a mild butterscotch or caramel flavour. It can be used in the same proportion as sugar in cooking and it has a low melt temperature and a high burn temperature which makes it a useful ingredient. It doesn't turn food brown when cooking either. Biona's Organic Coconut Sugar is completely natural, not filtered, processed or bleached, and it offers a rich supply of mineral salts, B vitamins and amino acids - this is part of the reason that it is gaining popularity among health gurus. In fact many cultures throughout history have valued it for its health benefits. It is also known by the names gula kelapa, jaggery or gur (but should not be confused with Indian cane sugar which can also be called 'jaggery'). Biona's organic coconut palm sugar has rich butterscotch and caramel flavours.

Serving Suggestion

It can be used as an alternative sweetener in drinks, baking and desserts and is delicious on cereals.

Customer reviews - Biona Organic Coconut Palm Sugar, Unrefined 250g


Coconut Sugar - Thu 28th Jan 2016

Smells delicious, like caramel. Great for a cup of tea, smoothies and sprinkled over porridge. Much better than refined white sugar.

My favourite sugar substitute - Wed 30th Dec 2015

I've just used this to replace sugar in a pea soup recipe. Replaced like for like. The soup was yummy.

Nice sugar - Mon 26th Oct 2015

This sugar has a great natural taste. It's perfect to add to any dish or smoothie to give a nice natural sweetness that is not sickly at all.

- Thu 21st May 2015

Disappointing, I brought this as I'd read it was supposed to be better for you than the agave syrup I use in my tea but I found that this had an unusual taste which I didn't enjoy, so I'm back to the agave syrup but I will try this in baking and see if it fairs better

- Fri 23rd Jan 2015

Wonderful. Tastes of butterscotch. Try it on your pancakes or waffles.

- Thu 11th Sep 2014

Rather bitter tasting sugar that colours baking products yellow and did not produce pleasant tasting baking - expensive mistake better with honey or maple syrup

Lovely - Fri 9th May 2014

I use this to sweeten food instead of refined white sugar, has a lovely caramel flavour.

- Thu 30th Jan 2014

This is delicious, it has a lovely flavour, like caramel and supposed to be better for our health than sugar, I've just added it to my favourites list.

like brown sugar... - Sun 6th Oct 2013

Only richer and sweeter. Apparantely it has lower is very nice and has a toffee like flavour. Will buy again :-)

Just as versatile as other sugars! - Tue 24th Sep 2013

I love this sugar because everyone can eat it, even those who don't like coconut! It really tastes like a cane sugar and is just as versatile for hot and cold foods!

THE BEST! - Fri 17th May 2013

This is THE best sugar to buy! For all the reasons stated on the website ... but it is truly delicious, and doesn't give any 'sugar rush'. A mild, soft flavour which is fabulous in coffee (if you drink coffee!) and also for making sweet and sour stir-fries. Just melt it in a little warm water, and add to your veg, with a little good quality cider vinegar.

- Tue 2nd Apr 2013

This stuff is great! It has such a lovely flavour (much nicer than white or brown sugar in my opinion). I use it to replace regular sugar in so many recipes, and it's great with cinnamon on porridge!

- Mon 1st Apr 2013

Delicious flavour less 'sharply' sweet than cane sugar. Would recommend.

Perfect Sugar Substitute - Tue 13th Nov 2012

This product is a real find - perfect as a sugar substitute (and apparently much healthier) in hot drinks, cakes, puddings and all sorts. The delightful caramel taste makes it even nicer than normal brown sugar. Would highly recommend.

Delicious and versatile! - Wed 24th Oct 2012

This is a fantastic replacement for sugar! It is not neutral in taste-I think it is nicer, because it has notes of caramel and butterscotch that add a fantastic flavour to cooking and baking. It melts down just like caramel and is all around fantastic. Great stuff!!

Delicious! - Fri 19th Oct 2012

This is a fantastic and far more nutritious replacement for sugar. It tastes nothing like coconut-more like butterscotch or caramel. It melts just like sugar however and is fantastic for making homemade caramel candies!

- Fri 10th Aug 2012

I love this sugar - a slightly more caramel taste than normal white sugar but the health benefits attracted me!

- Sat 7th Jul 2012

Very nice! I like adding it to my cup of tea, cereals and baking cookies.
