Is palm sugar a natural sweetener?

Palm sugar is made from palm trees. It’s a secret ingredient of delicious sweets made in South East Asian, Middle Eastern, and North African countries. It can also be added to curries and sauces.

Lots of sweet nectar are present in the flowers of palm trees. It’s quite sticky, and is often called sap. People cut these flowers, bundle them up, and keep them hanging upside down from a height for some time. The sap oozes out of the flowers, and is collected in a container below.

This sap is also used to make a weird alcoholic beverage called toddy, which is the reason some people say “toddy palm tree” and “toddy sugar”.

Can something like sugar have nutrients?

Surprisingly, the answer is yes! This ingredient has a lot of nutrients. It will always deliver a little more than ordinary sugar.

This is due to the process the sugar goes through while being produced. The unprocessed and unrefined sugar keeps all the vitamins and minerals intact in the palm sugar. This is why it's common to find small packets of palm sugar in some cafes.
