Coconut sugar is made from the sap of coconut palm trees; extracted once the blossom is removed. This nectar is gently heated until it becomes unrefined sugar. Analysis of coconut sugar shows that it has a low glycaemic index of 35 which is less than refined sugar (68), honey (48) and agave (40). Coconut sugar is not a raw food.
Ombar's chocolate is not only sourced from the best of the Ecuadorian cocoa farms, it is also raw. They like to keep it that way, their methods ensure that they preserve as much of natures original goodness as possible - hence why they have six times more flavanols than comparable chocolate brands. Ombar treat their chocolate like a health food - because it is - and therefore they only use the healthiest ingredients such as unrefined coconut sugar, real fruit and live cultures.
