CelebrateWoman (CW) Who is the primary target for Coconut World sugar?
SaraJean Cameranesi (SaraJean) The target audience is the people who are health-conscious and are looking for products that would enhance their food quality intake.

Also, people with Type 2 diabetes may be interested, and those who are hypoglycemic.

CW What is the #1 reason someone should buy your Coconut World sugar?

SaraJeanThe Number 1 reason is that coconut sugar is very low glycemic – 35 on the white bread scale. That means it doesn’t allow huge up and down surges in your blood sugar.

CW How is Coconut World sugar product different than your #1 competitor?

SaraJean Coconut sugar is a very versatile product.
• First, it tastes great.
• Second, it could be used as a 1:1 substitute to sugar, without loosing sweetness for the dishes you make.
• Third, coconut sugar boasts rich mineral content. For each 100 grams of coconut sugar, there are 1,030 mg of Potassium and 79 mg of Phosphorus.

You make your own decision whether to include coconut sugar in your regular diet.

CW What benefits will a person receive when using Coconut World sugar regularly?

SaraJean To mention a few benefits of consuming coconut sugar regularly.

Coconut sugar is low glycemic and won’t give a person sugar highs and lows. The studies show that a low glycemic food regimen can contribute to weight loss and management; reduce the risk of heart disease and improve blood cholesterol levels.

You don’t have to give up your sweets either! People with Type 2 diabetes can consume coconut sugar instead of regular white cane sugar due to its low glycemic number.

And again, coconut sugar tastes great.

CW How does the price of Coconut World sugar compare to others in your category?

SaraJean Compared to regular cane sugar, coconut sugar is more expensive (about 3 times more).

However, if we take a look at all sweeteners that are available in the current market, coconut sugar is very competitive, and even less expensive than stevia.

CW Everyone is talking these days about being green. To me, that includes being Fair Trade, being sustainable, and organic. It might even include using alternative energy, or buying energy offsets. How does your company, your product, measure-up on these important issues?

SaraJean We are keeping in mind the carbon footprint on our planet at all times. Coconut sugar production is very sustainable, as coconut trees grow in abundance without any pesticides and chemicals. These trees do not deplete soil of nutrients.

Coconut sugar production is a year-round business and yields about 75% more crop per hectare than its counterpart cane sugar.

And yes, we are improving our transportation management for our product.

Coconut World is researching sustainable, green alternatives for packaging. There are so many companies that can help us in solving this.

Without being certified organic, the Coconut World coconut sugar is organic by the ways it’s raised and harvested. Yet, to be more competitive, we shall pursue the official organic certifications.

CW When someone reads the ingredients from the label on your product, what would you like them to notice?
SaraJean That there is only one ingredient found in our coconut sugar. It is granulated coconut sap. Nothing else is added to it.
