So, what is palmu?

Palmu, also known as palm sugar, is a natural sweetener derived from the sap of various species of palm trees. It has a distinctive caramel-like flavor and a rich, brown color that ranges from light to dark, depending on the type of palm tree and the processing method. Palmu is a popular ingredient in Southeast Asian cuisine, where it is used in desserts, sauces, and marinades. It is also a healthier alternative to refined sugar, as it is low on the glycemic index and contains vitamins and minerals. In addition, palmu is a sustainable crop that supports the livelihoods of many small farmers in rural areas.
