HESED PALM SUGAR
Palm sugar is a sweetener that is made from the sap present in the flower buds of the Palm tree. It is known as natural sugar because it involves minimum processing and no chemicals are used. The sap from the tree is heated to wick away the moisture content until a thick syrup is obtained, and this sweet nectar is then further reduced to crystals. In the stores, palm sugar is available in the block, granular and liquid form.?
Though of late, many speculations revolve around palm sugar and its health benefits, it has been a common ingredient used in the preparation of traditional dishes in the south and south-east Asian cuisines. The sugar has a mild caramel flavor and in its liquid form resembles honey whereas, in the granular state, it is not much different in taste as compared to white sugar.
What is Palm Sugar?
Palm trees represent a cultural symbol of Cambodia and Khmer people have always protected their palm trees from deforestation, until today. It’s estimated that 20,000 families in Cambodia produce palm sugar, mainly as a paste, using inefficient stoves which make a low-quality sugar. Palm sugar production takes place during the dry season (from December till May) when palm trees produce juice. Sovannak Enterprise that is a partner of HESED AGRICULTURE TRADING CO., LTD is working hand in hand with producers to improve the quality of their palm sugar in order to make it more competitive both domestically and internationally. Producers are closely trained and supported, as a result, their production reaches hygienic and environmental international standards. Sovannak Enterprise and HESED AGRICULTURE TRADING CO., LTD also guarantees them to get a fair and steady price all along the season.
