    Gula Java coconut blossom sugar

    Today I bought 'Gula Java unrefined Coconut blossom sugar', has anyone heard of this before? It says "Recognised as the most sustainable form of sugar by the FAO"

    Gandhi, 3rd of May 1939: “The use of coconut blossom sugar is a way to solve the world’s poverty. The juice of the coconut tree can be transformed into a sugar as soft as honey… Nature created this product such that it could not be processed in factories. Palm sugar can only be produced in palm tree habitats. Local populations can easily turn the nectar into coconut blossom sugar. It is a way to solve the world’s poverty. It is also an antidote against misery.”
    Could this be considered 'primal'?

    Nobody can give an answer to this?

    If I'd want to make something sweet for my kids, would it be a good substitute for honey? They don't really like honey.

    If it is rich in minerals like molasses, maple syrup and honey are, it should be fine to have every now and then.

    South east asian speaking here:

    Gula means sugar. Java is a place in south east asia; an island off Indonesia to be exact.

    It's a fruit sugar. Think of it in the same vein as maple/agave syrup or honey. Once in a while in small amounts will probably not hurt. Avoid if trying to lose weight.
