Coconut Flower Nectar
Coconut flower nectar, a sweetening superfruit, is particularly interesting because it’s the naturally sweet, nutrient-rich “sap” or nectar that comes from coconut blossoms. All of the components of a coconut have wonderful health benefits, but the nectar contains 17 amino acids, minerals, and vitamin C; has a broad spectrum of B vitamins; and is high in potassium, magnesium, zinc, and iron. It also has a high content of inulin, a prebiotic fiber, which feeds our intestinal flora and helps boost digestive and immune functions.
Along with all of coconut flower nectar’s nutrition, it’s also low on the glycemic index (GI), so it produces a slow energy release, helping to sustain your body through daily activities without “highs” and “lows.”
