Coconut Secret Organic Mint Coconut Snack Bar
Coconut Secret Bars were created in a quest to find a diabetic-safe snack. Since coconut is composed primarily of saturated fat and fiver, it ranks low on the glycemic index scale. Saturated fat helps slow down the entry of sugar into the bloodstream and the sweetener used in the bars are a very low glycemic coconut nectar and coconut crystals. No other sweeteners have a comparable flavor profile, and best of all, they won't zing your blood sugar!

It all began in the Spring of 2008, with an overwhelming desire to create a low glycemic, gluten-free snack line that was truly safe for diabetics, using the purest, most organic, least processed ingredients we could find. Coconut sugar is made by collecting the "sap" from coconut tree blossoms. There are specific species of coconut trees that can be "tapped" (much like maple trees are tapped in the maple syrup making process). Bamboo containers are used to collect the sap of the coconut trees right at the blossoms. When the coconut trees are tapped, they produce a continuously flowing "inflorescence" (juice or sap) that exudes from the coconut blossoms. This naturally sweet sap is very low glycemic (GI of 35), raw and enzymatically alive, an abundant source of 17 amino acids, minerals, vitamin C, broad-spectrum B vitamins, and has a nearly neutral pH. It is then minimally evaporated at low temperatures (only to remove excess moisture), never exceeding an average summer day in the tropics. The end result is a syrup-like product known as coconut "toddy", which is then further evaporated into crystal form to produce the coconut sugar.
