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 percent), 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.
