Cocoro Natural Sugar Company believes in making whole-food options more accessible to the global market of packaged food consumers. People in supermarkets might opt to buy healthier ingredients for home cooking, like raw sugars instead of refined white sugars, but a lot of our ready-to-eat products are still made with highly processed sweeteners. The production of pure, natural coco sap sugar is not easy, but we believe in doing things right and delivering honest, reliable products that you can trust will be beneficial for you and your family. We believe in giving customers what is promised to them, because as customers, we also want to be able to trust our suppliers.
To our farmer partners, Cocoro acts as an eye, quickly learning how coco sap sugar can be used and incorporated into the modern diet of different cultures and communicating this information to our manufacturing hub. Apart from helping our farmer partners implement better quality controls and manufacturing practices, we also aim to explore sustainable new technology with them, in order to come up with better products according to our customers’ needs. To the world market, Cocoro acts as an ambassador, introducing the wonderful products made by Filipino farmers to a global audience and assisting them as they explore new ways to use coco sap sugar and muscovado food and beverage preparation.
HOW COCORO IS MADE
In the Philippines, the coconut palm (cocos nucifera) is known as "the tree of life". It has also been refered to as "the tree of a thousand uses". This prolific plant produces prodigious numbers of products.
A traditional sweetener throughout Asia, Cocoro Organic Coconut Sugar is made by tapping the nectar from the palm tree's flowers, then heating it in large drums to evaporate the moisture. This produces sugar crystals that are very similar to brown sugar, with sinfully sweet flavor and subtle caramel overtones. You can use it for baking, as a sweetener for your coffee or tea, to top oatmeal or other hot cereals, or to add an exotic sweetness to sauces or even cocktails. We're guessing there are "thousand uses", or more, but there's not room here to share them all.
