Masarang Arenga Forest Sugar is a delicious, USDA certified organic, low- glycemic sugar tapped from the Arenga Pinnata.
It is the healthiest choice of sweeteners that is mineral rich with less than half the glycemic load of cane sugar and honey. It is versatile and can be used to replace cane sugar in recipes. It has a naturally creamy caramel taste and a heavenly aroma. Arenga is recognised in human history as a health sweetener as early as 1400s, when it was exported as a diabetic-friendly sugar for the Chinese Emperor.
The Arenga tree is also an important environmental conservation tool. The Masarang foundation provides a livelihood to aborigines who tap the sugar, helping them resist the option to sell forest land to corporations that bring about large scale deforestation.
