Low Glycemic Coconut Palm Sugar Introduced

 

American Key Food Products has introduced Suchero brand organic coconut palm sugar to the North American market. As exclusive distributor, AKFP now offers this all-natural, low Glycemic Index sugar which can be used in specialty baked goods, energy bars and beverages, and also as a tabletop sweetener.

“This premium coconut palm sugar is an excellent alternative for those seeking healthier sweetener choices,” says Mel Festejo, COO of American Key Food Products. “It is especially well-suited to today’s consumers who are looking for high quality, all-natural, organic whole foods. Because it’s made from the sap of the coconut palm it has an unusually high level of nutrients, which are retained through gentle, non-chemical processing. It has an appealing light brown color and mild, nutty, sweet taste, and is great for diabetics, so we expect product developers and consumers to embrace this as a better, healthier sweetener alternative.”

The sugar content is primarily sucrose (78% to 89%), and it has been proven to have a Glycemic Index of 35. This classifies it as a low G.I. food. It is certified organic, GMO-free, Kosher and Halal, and contains 16 amino acids, as well as many vitamins and minerals. Produced in a modern HACCP-compliant facility, it is exceptionally consistent in quality and functionality.

Suchero brand organic coconut sugar is available from AKFP in a variety of bulk containers, and can also be packed in individual consumer sachets in boxes of 20, 80, or 100 units.

American Key Food Products is a major North American distributor of a wide range of high quality food ingredients such as starches, flours, sweeteners, spices, nuts and seeds.
