So, what is gula kelapa?

Gula kelapa, also known as coconut sugar, is a natural sweetener derived from the sap of coconut palm trees. This unrefined and minimally processed ingredient has a rich caramel flavor and can be used in place of traditional granulated sugar in baking or cooking. Gula kelapa is a popular ingredient in Southeast Asian cuisine and is gaining popularity worldwide due to its low glycemic index and high nutrient content, including zinc, iron, and potassium. It's an eco-friendly alternative to conventional sugar, as it requires less water and fertilizer to produce.
