Sovannak Palm Sugar is a granulated sugar produced from the sap of the Palmyra palm (also called the sugar palm tree) in small batches by rural, family-run producers here in Cambodia. Its texture makes it easier to dissolve than brown sugar, and the color ranges from light blond to rich brown depending on the batch and seasonal factors. Palm sugar is excellent for use in coffee, tea, desserts, Asian dishes, and as a substitute for brown or raw sugar. Its unique flavor complements a wide variety of dishes from curries to caramels, chocolates and fruits. Local and Sustainable Production: Sovannak Palm Sugar is produced organically, without chemical additives, on fuel-efficient, improved cookstoves. This process greatly improves the taste and quality of the palm sugar, as well as promoting a sustainable, environmentally-friendly way out of poverty for rural Cambodians; each kilo of Sovannak Palm Sugar saves 2 kilos of wood from being unsustainably taken from local forests. Healthy Diet: While no sugar is 100% safe for diabetics to use, palm sugar has half of the Glycemic Index of white sugar, causing less of a rise in blood sugar levels and a reduced insulin response. Clinical trials at the Harvard School of Public Health of more than 85,000 people over a 20-year period showed that the Glycemic Index was validated in preventing Type 2 diabetes and obesity. The Sovannak Palm Sugar is also a good source of minerals and vitamins to support a balanced diet. Sovannak Palm Sugar is available for retail purchase in plastic zippered bags and plastic bottle of 200g, 500g, 420g and 250g; or for wholesale in bags of 20kg.
