The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the World Bank has reported that coconut palm sweeteners are the single most sustainable sweetener in the world!
Because tropical palms are an ecologically beneficial tree crop that grows in diverse, wildlife supportive agro-ecosystems that restore damaged soils and require very little water.
Coconut palms produce an average of 50-75% more sugar per acre than sugar cane and use less than 1/5th the soil nutrients and water for that production.
Coconut palms can grow in severely compromised soil (just think of sandy beaches), can survive drought conditions and still produce the sweet nectar that gives us our palm sugar.
Many traditional communities throughout the world consider coconut palms the “Tree of Life”, as they provide a variety of accessible products from which they earn their livelihoods. The production of SweetTree organic coconut sugar has the single highest potential for lifting these farmers into a better life while creating a net benefit to their surrounding environment.
*Organic Evaporated Coconut Palm Sugars are not produced from the same palm species as is used for the production of Palm Oil.
