Highly Sustainable

“The most sustainable sugar on the planet”. According to ‘The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the World Bank’, coconut sugar is the only most sustainable sweetener around the world because coconut palm trees can produce more sugar when compared to sugar cane, approx 50-75% more per acre, and requires less soil nutrients and water in its process. Single coconut tree can be tapped restlessly for the coming 2 decades and more than this it can survive in damaged soil and certainly restore it.
There are some environmental problems with sugar cane production which may not present with coconut sugar production, wherein the tree can keep producing the sap year after year. As per the industry websites, less water is used in the production of coconut sugar, and coconut palms can grow in very poor soil, such as sandy beaches. Hence coconut palm trees not just give us healthy sweetener but it also benefited for the ecology of the environment.
