In a kettle above a log fire, the nectar slowly transforms into a delicious, unrefined rich sugar. Enjoyable ever moment of the day with a soft and sweet caramel flavour.
Gula Java can be used as a substitute for cabe or beet sugar, agave or maple syrup. Perfect for in tea or coffee, delicious on oven-warmed apples, baked bananas, pancakes, pies, waffles, pastries, cakes and other baked goods. Also perfect for cocktails (e.g. Mojito, Caipirinha, etc.) If you fancy, it can be used as the decorative sugar rim for your cocktail glass.
Ideal to finish off dishes or to add to authenticity to Asian recipes. Can also be used as a snack for some extra energy.
It is recognised as the most sustainable form of sugar by the Food and Argiculture Organization (FAO).
✔ Gula Java is unrefined natural sugar. As opposed to white sugar, which is refined beet root sugar, Gula Java is not stripped of its natural nutritious value. It is a great source of minerals, including chromium and inositol.
