Sri Lanka’s multifarious coconut palm tree brings yet another healthy delight in this gorgeously beautiful tasting coconut treacle. Its low GI (Glycemic Index) means it is also ideal for you if you are worried about blood sugar levels.
Coconut treacle also has a low calorie content when compared with cane sugars and passes through the body instead of getting stored, effectively being an ideal form of sweetener if you are diabetic. Coconut treacle is used to make a multitude of traditional sweets but can also be used as a topping, mixed in with porridge or used in cuisine.
Sri Lanka has a variety (19 different types) of coconut palm trees, although you may not be able to point out any unique differences with a casual glance. The coconut tree is pretty much used in its entirety and the sheer number of products made from coconut palm trees is mind boggling. And it is a highly sustainable plantation crop.
Considering its edible produce, coconut treacle is a standout. It is more affordable than the more elusive and premium Kithul treacle (derived from the Kithul palm) but there are quite a lot of consistencies in taste, colour and usage. And you can easily replace Kithul treacle with coconut treacle and most people wouldn’t notice.
Goodfolks natural coconut Treacle is sourced from sustainable and organic plantations.
Goodfolks natural coconut Treacle is sourced from sustainable and organic plantations. The extraction process is standard and traditional (the coconut palm flower is tapped by men who climb the tall trees and collect the sap overtime). But because these are done on plantations and not in the wild (in the case of Kithul treacle) the manufacturing process is standardised and this has enabled the product to be USDA Organic certified, EU organic certified and have the FSSC 22000 certification.
Sourced from organic and sustainable plantations and manufactured to international standards.
