Coconut Nectar (Cocos nucifera)

Cocos nucifera

Coconut nectar is a natural sweetener collected from the nectar of coconut palm flowers. The sweet nectar is tapped by slicing the end of the matured flower bud and a cup will be placed beneath the bud to collect the dripping sap (or known as blossom nectar or “toddy”). The juice of pure blossom (sometimes called neera) is traditionally consumed fresh or is fermented into “palm wine” or “coconut vodka”.
To make coconut nectar, the watery “toddy” undergone evaporation at low temperatures to form a thick-texture syrup.

Coconut nectar is claimed to be low in glycemic index as compared to other sweeteners and it is packed with wide range of nutrients, including magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, vitamin C, broad spectrum vitamin B and 17 different amino acids.

HEALTH BENEFITS

Low glycemic sweetener

In vivo study on effect of durian on cholesterol
Subject Adult humans (n = 10) Fasting blood glucose ≤ 66.2 mmol/l, BMI = 20–25 kg/m2, age 27–55 years, non-smokers, no physical defect
Parameters analysed Glycemic index
Outcomes Coconut sap nectar is found to have low GI level in human blood glucose.

Table 1: The glycemic index (GI) represents the blood glucose response to a food relative to a standard glucose solution.
Glycemic Index Ratings
Coconut sap sugar 35 ± 4 Low
Coconut sap sugar 42 ± 4 Low
Coconut sap sugar 39 ± 4 Low
Function -Low glycemic index of coconut nectar helps in reducing the risk factors of diabetic. -Gives lower calories in daily sugar intake. -Higher fructose intake has been associated with increased risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases.

Lowers cholesterol level

Lab experiment
Subject Healthy male and female volunteers (n = 20) age ranging from 18 to 55 years, BMI 18.5 to 27 (in kg/m2)
Duration 90 days
Dosage 15 g of CSP dissolved in 250 mL of water (daily, after breakfast)
Parameters analysed Lipid profiling of total cholesterol, triglyceride, high-density lipoprotein (HDL), low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL)
Outcomes -The lipid profile showed a significant difference upon supplementation of CSP.

-Reduction in triglyceride, total cholesterol level, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) was recorded.

-Slight increase of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) was noted after 90 days of CSP consumption.
