Frequently Asked Questions
What is Sweet Revenge?
Sweet Revenge is 100% certified organic coconut flower nectar. Coconut flower nectar comes from the flower of the coconut palm, which is the same flower that ultimately sprouts a coconut. Our nectar is sustainably grown and harvested in Indonesia, then carefully dried and ground to a fine grain (the form that's best for baking).
What does Sweet Revenge taste like?
Subtly sweet with a hint of caramel, Sweet Revenge has a richer, more complex flavor than refined sugar. The flavor is mellow enough to go unnoticed in most places you'd normally use refined sugar, but a more experienced set of taste buds will be able to extract a profile most closely akin to brown sugar.
How do you use Sweet Revenge?
Unlike other natural sweeteners, Sweet Revenge is used cup-for-cup; Just swap out your recipe's requirements for refined sugar for the same amount of Sweet Revenge. Confectioners and pastry chefs should know that Sweet Revenge has a slightly higher burning point than cane sugar. We're working to create a definitive guide to temperature modifications for traditional candy-making stages; meanwhile, a generally good rule of thumb is to cook to 10 degrees higher than you would with cane sugar.
Is Sweet Revenge lower calorie than refined sugar?
Sweet Revenge and refined sugar have identical calorie counts. While coconut flower nectar has a lot of nutritional and planet perks over refined sugar, it's still a sweetener - and like all good things, it should be consumed in moderation!
What does Low Glycemic mean?
The glycemic index (GI) is a ranking of carbohydrates on a scale from 0 to 100 according to the extent to which they raise blood sugar levels after eating. Foods with a high GI are those which are rapidly digested and absorbed and result in marked fluctuations in blood sugar levels. Low-GI foods, by virtue of their slow digestion and absorption, produce gradual rises in blood sugar and insulin levels, and have proven benefits for health. Low GI diets have been shown to improve both glucose and lipid levels in people with diabetes (type 1 and type 2). They have benefits for weight control because they help control appetite and delay hunger. Low GI diets also reduce insulin levels and insulin resistance.
