Covico Evaporated Coconut Nectars [100% Pure Coconut Nectar!]
As the world becomes increasingly health conscious, customers are paying more and more attention to what’s on their food label. This is especially true when it comes to refined sugar intake, as these can have several negative health effects such as weight gain, an increased risk of heart disease, and an increased risk of depression; just to name a few. But there is a challenge: customers don’t want added sugars, yet they still want their food to be sweetened in some (preferably natural) way. Luckily, Covico has a solution: Refined sugars are out, and Covico Evaporated Coconut Nectar is in. Here is what you need to know about this healthful sugar replacement and how we’ve embraced it here at Covico.
What is Coconut Nectar?
Coconut nectar, or more commonly known as coconut sugar, is a healthier alternative to refined sugar that can be used as a 1:1 replacement in formulations. It is produced from the nectar of the flower blossom of the coconut tree. Therefore, since it’s not from the actual coconut fruit, coconut nectar isn’t considered a tree nut allergen. To make our evaporated coconut nectar, the flower blossom is tapped, the nectar is boiled, and the sap is milled into granules. Coconut nectar is also incredibly sustainable, in fact, coconut nectar was named the single most sustainable sweetener in the world by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. Coconut nectar can vary tremendously in color, taste, and consistency, and should not be treated as a commodity. At Covico, we guarantee the highest levels of quality and consistency in every batch of our evaporated coconut nectar.
Is Coconut Nectar Good for You?
Yes, along with tasting delicious, coconut nectar is better for you than processed sugars! It is an unrefined sugar, meaning it does not possess the health risks mentioned above that come with consuming refined sugars. Coconut sugar also contains minerals such as calcium and potassium, and has a glycemic index of 35, which is very low compared to an index of 65 in cane sugar and 55 in honey. Covico Evaporated Coconut Nectar is also low in calories, with only 15 calories in every 4 grams.
What Can You Use Evaporated Coconut Nectar In?
Evaporated coconut nectar is a very versatile product. As mentioned before, it works as a 1:1 sugar replacement, so can be used in any product that would normally include refined sugar. This means that Covico Coconut Sugar is the perfect addition to baked goods, granola, confectionary, ice cream, sauces, beverages, snack foods, protein bars, cocktails, and much more.

It is our mission to ensure that mutually rewarding trade exists with our farmers and that their families, villages, and new generations share in the worldwide growth of the coconut nectar industry.
