Banaban Coconut Sugar called Ka maimai by the Banaban people and is made from very fresh coconut nectar that is collected from the sap of the coconut tree and processed immediately to avoid fermentation. The fresh sap is then boiled and evaporated into granules, crystallising the sap to look like sugar. Not all Coconut Sugars are created Equal.?Banaban? Coconut Sugar is made from 100% pure natural Coconut Sugar that has not had anti-fermentation agents such as lime, calcium hydroxide or sodium metabisulfite or additives such as sugar cane added during processing.? Banaban Coconut Sugar is made from 100% pure coconut sap and is not blended with other inferior types of palm or cane sugars.What are the levels of Sucrose, Fructose and Glucose in Coconut Sugar? The sucrose concentration in fresh coconut sap is about 12% (ave.) by weight, although this varies from tree to tree, tree variety, and may range from 10% to over 14%. To make Coconut Sugar from the Coconut Nectar Syrup (Ka maimai) the sap is boiled until it becomes increasingly more concentrated and sweeter right up to the point where the liquid has completely evaporated. When completely dry, sugar type crystals have formed that are approximately 85% sucrose, 3% fructose and 2% glucose (fructose and glucose are known together as invert sugars) with a light to dark brown colour and the characteristic coconut sugar flavour. ?
