Gula Java Coconut blossom sugar: The perfect snack for added energy. Super Food
When you refine the poppy plant, first you get opium, then morphine and finally heroine. This is a chemical substance. The same is true when one refines sugar beet or sugar cane. As William Dufty describes it in his fantastic book ‘Sugar blues’: ‘Sugar blues is a state of depression or melancholy overlaid with fear, physical discomfort, and anxiety’. ▲ In 1923, the year in which insulin was discovered, the melody ‘sugar blues’ was written: ‘Everybody’s singing the sugar blues. I’m so unhappy, I feel so bad. I could lay me down and die... You can say what you choose... But I’m all confused... I’ve got the sweet, sweet sugar blues... More sugar...’ Refined sugar plays poker with your emotions. Gula Java does not.


Gula Java is more than sugar

In the book ‘The Secret Life of Plants’, Peter Tompkins mentions that the fresh juice of the sugar cane contains 8,500 units of healthy nutrients. Indeed, the roots of the sugar cane can extract nutrients from the soil at a depth of 4.5 metres. Superior food. But once processed into white or brown sugar, the number of units is down to 0.

Isolated sugar barely contains any nutrients or minerals. In order for the body to take up these empty sugar calories, it needs to draw on saliva, gastric juices, intestinal juices and enzymes. At least 5 minerals and 5 vitamins, such as chromium, zinc and magnesium, are drawn from the body. The body’s reserves are exhausted. A little refined sugar now and then is no problem at all. However, when consumed on a daily basis, refined sugar (white or brown sugar) is bad for your health, an anti-food and a silent killer. Gula Java, on the other hand, is super healthy when used daily.

Gula Java is more than sugar

Fair World Noble-House logoFor its coconut blossom sugar, Amanprana cooperates with Lestari Mandiri and Hivos. The Lestari association fights for the interests of small-scale farmers and their families in central Java. Hivos is a humanitarian organisation working towards a fair, free and sustainable world. The organisation also stands for equal opportunities for women. This project is about humanitarian rights, and we therefore call it Fair World. In the Fair World project we cooperate with farmers’ associations in Central Java, which ensure that the harvesting and production processes of our coconut blossom sugar are carried out according to organic, fair trade and fair world principles. They are members of Organic Alliance, an organisation striving for more organic produce in Indonesia. Together we aim at providing an additional income for 850 families in Java and at protecting their eco habitat. The coconut trees in their gardens now yield their own harvest. The Food and Agriculture Organization has named coconut blossom sugar the most sustainable sugar.

What is “Gula Java”?

Gula Java is coconut blossom sugar from Java. Harvested by tappers high in the coconut trees (picture to the left), the sweet nectar from the coconut blossom is a cherished resource. Above the log fire, the nectar slowly changes into a delicious, unrefined rich sugar as it is gently stirred in the pan (picture to the right), allowing you to enjoy its sweetness and soft caramel flavour at any time of the day.
