About Lontar Sugar from Kupang

The lontar tree is the economic backbone for the local people because of its versatile uses. All parts of the tree can be used to make palm sugar, tuak, roofing material, hats, and even sasando, a traditional musical instrument. The energy-rich lontar or palm sugar has been traded widely throughout the Indonesian archipelago for centuries. It has the lowest calorie compared to any natural sugar, truly the best choice for those searching for an alternative healthy sweetener.

Processed at the Origin

After hand-harvested from the wild Palmyra trees in Kupang, Lontar sap is heated slowly until it dries up and crystalizes into refined brown sugar. After it's sifted, the sugar is sundried in green-house box and carefully packed in bulk, ready to be delivered to you. Watu Lontar sugar is well-known for its purity and rich mineral content. Its delicately sweet taste pairs delightfully with teas, coffees, and desserts.
