The combination with the Gula Java coconut blossom sugar offers you even more healthy energy, without leaving you in a rushed or haste mood. This allows for you to relax and enjoy your day in a more peaceful manner. Additionally, it will give you more focus and allow for better concentration.
For this healthy energy drink Amanprana's nutritionists combined the Gula Java coconut blossom sugar with Matcha. Matcha is a Japanese ceremonial green tea and is very healthy. It is packed with healthy tannins, has the antioxidative effect of polyphenols and has a high nutritional value. Moreover, it has a very pure taste.
For this energy drink, Amanprana choose for a green tea of Kotobuki quality. This simply means that the green tea leaves are very young and will be consumed whole. The young tea leaves from the Camelia Sinensis are ground slowly to a green powder, resulting in the 'Matcha tea'.
The nutritional value of the Gula Java Matcha is 10 to 15 times higher than normal green tea. This is due to the fact that you are consuming the whole tea leaf and as such all the nutritional values it has to offer. With green tea, most of the time, nutritional value is lost because the tea leaves are 'thrown out'.
You will find your daily portion of antioxidants in 1 cup of Gula Java Matcha. 1 teaspoon (8.5g) Gula Java Matcha contains all the antioxidants you require on a daily basis (ORAC 3500). The 4 catechins and tannins help against ageing and give the body the strength to fight off attacks by oxidants. The antioxidant power of the polyphenols (catechins and tannins) is many times higher than for Vitamin C or E. Moreover, the L-theanine protein, the caffeine and the Gula Java give you a 'gentle alertness'.
“Kotobuki” means “long life” in Japanese. And that is not a coincidence.
Gula Java is the coconut blossom sugar from Java. The sweet nectar from the coconut blossom is a cherished resource, harvested by tappers high in the coconut trees. 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.
✔ Gula Java has a low glycemic index (GI) of 35. The degree to which carbohydrates (sugars) in food increase your blood sugar level is expressed as a GI value. Low GI food (less than 50) keeps your blood sugar level in balance, but high GI food (over 70) causes dramatic upward and downward fluctuations.
✔ Gula Java slowly gives off its energy - no sugar highs. Because of its low glycemic index, Gula Java gives you long-lasting energy. It slowly gives off its energy, preventing ups and downs in blood sugar level. No sugar highs and no mood swings.
