I already supplement with B vitamin pills - why should I use Palmyra Blossom Nectar instead?
Put simply, it’s always better for your body to obtain vitamins and minerals through nutrition rather than pills. Whole foods are recognisable to the body, therefore the uptake of their nutrients is greatly increased. Synthetic and even some food state vitamins can be difficult for your body to absorb, not to mention expensive to use on a long term basis! Palmyra Blossom Nectar is naturally rich in vitamins B1, B2, B6 & bioavailable B12, and is an easily incorporated addition to your daily diet.
Why is Palmyra blossom nectar better than regular sugar? Isn’t sugar just sugar?
White sugar is made by stripping the nutrients and color of the sugarcane plant through a rigorous refining process. It offers no substantial health benefits (with over- consumption being linked to a growing documented list of negative health effects), because all the wholesome goodness has been taken away during its production. Palmyra Blossom Nectar on the other hand is totally unrefined (leaving it’s impressive nutritional content intact), low glycemic (keeping blood sugar levels stable) and tastes absolutely delicious. Plus, it supports people and our planet through their sustainable operations in India, where they work directly with farmer cooperatives to ensure they’re paid a fair wage.
Can I cook or bake with Palmyra blossom nectar?
You certainly can! Cooking and baking with Palmyra Blossom Nectar is easy, use a one to one replacement for cane sugar to make delicious and nutritious creations.
Is this product gluten and dairy free?
Yes, it is!
How much should I take?
Palmyra Blossom Nectar - 1-2 teaspoons per day. Palmyra Blossom Nectar can be enjoyed anywhere you’d normally add sugar! e.g. stirred into tea or coffee, used in baking, sprinkled onto porridge/ yoghurt or simply added to water.
Is Palmyra Blossom Nectar better than coconut sugar?
The short answer is yes in our opinion! Here's why. Palmyra has a superior nutritional profile, notably containing bioavailable vitamin B12. It also has a wide range of traditional therapeutic benefits that our customers experience, including a reduction in refined sugar cravings, improved energy, and more restful, uninterrupted sleep. From an environmental perspective, coconut production is intensively farmed.
